Carbon nanotubes were separated by dielectrophoresis in a micro-fluidics chip, which is easy to scale-up the process. We used the H-filter with micro size channels, which have two inlets and two outlets. In this experiment, [...]
The unique electrical and mechanical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) make them one of the most promising candidates for next generation nanoelectronics. However, synthesis of complex geometries for as-grown SWNTs still remains a challenging [...]

Since the carbon nanotube was reported by Iiijima, it has been intensively studied due to their great potential in nanoelectronics and nanomechanical devices. Recently, experimental results show that sing-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) change their electronic [...]
The aim of this work is to design and fabricate electromechanical tweezers based on CNT ropes. The electromechanical behaviour of such ropes has been studied. The average of Young’s modulus of the rope has been [...]
In this work (SWCNTs) have been synthesized by high pressure CO decomposition using cobalt grafted in MCM41 by means of grafting method employing cobalt (II) acetylacetonate. The reduction temperature of the metal species of this [...]
Recently, remove Pb2+ ions from drinking water has been focused due to its high toxicity to our health, such as nausea, convulsions, coma, renal failure, cancer and subtle effects on metabolism and intelligence. Different approaches [...]

The electron hopping in SWCNT-mediated redox reaction of anthraquinonnyl (AQH2-) and 4-arylhydroxyl amine (4AHA-) groups is systematically studied by DFT for the first time. The spin-unrestricted DFT calculations were performed with generalized gradient approximation (GGA) [...]
Commercially available SWNT of >95% purity was purified by high temperature oxidation and acid treatment. By a simple chemical wet process, SWNT samples were intercalated with as-prepared ZnS nanoparticles. The dried samples were dispersed in [...]
Molecular level mixing process was developed for the fabrication of homogeneous carbon nanotube(CNT)/Inorganic nanocomposites instead of the conventional powder mixing process in order to solve the agglomeration of CNTs and weak interfacial bonding between CNTs [...]
Mechanical and thermal stability of carbon nanotube junctions was studied using molecular dynamics simulation method. Junctions made from armchair and zigzag thin carbon nanotubes were first formed by thermal welding process, then tested under 1D [...]
A (5,0) SWNT with aspect ratio of 10.87 is simulated considering two different potentials, viz. Brenner’s Bond Order potential and Tight Binding potential. At first the Young’s modulus, failure stress and the maximum strain value [...]

Physical properties of a series of multi-walled carbon nanotube-high density polyethylene (MWNT-HDPE) composites, prepared by melt mixing in a micro-twin screw extruder, were investigated. The effect of MWNT concentration (0.5-7 wt%) and nanotube surface treatment [...]
Highly porous sheets comprised of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes and doped polypyrrole (SWNT-PPy) were prepared by vacuum filtration of SWNT-PPy methanol dispersions. The employed preparation procedure is an extension of conventional bucky-paper fabrication method for [...]
Biological systems make use of hair and capillary type hierarchical structures to create more surface area in limited space, but very few synthetic materials use this concept. Geometrical calculations show that if hierarchical substrates are [...]
