The handling, dispersion, manipulation, and functionalization of carbon nanotubes and nanopipes often require the use of solvents. Therefore, a good understanding of the wetting properties of the carbon nanotubes is needed. Such knowledge is also essential for the design of nanotube-based nanofluidic devices, which hold the promise of revolutionizing chemical analysis, separation, drug delivery, filtration, and sensing. In this work, we investigated the wetting behavior of individual nanopipes… CONTINUE READING
