Polymer structure and solvent effects on the selective dispersion of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Combinations of different aromatic polymers and organic solvents have been studied as dispersing agents for preparing single-walled carbon nanotubes solutions, using optical absorbance, photoluminescence-excitation mapping, computer modeling, and electron microscopic imaging to characterize the solutions. Both the polymer structure and solvent used strongly influence the dispersion of the nanotubes, leading in some cases to very high selectivity in terms of diameter and chiral angle. The high...Expand abstract
