Carbon Nanotubes


Investigation of Carbon Nanotube Mechanical Properties Using Atomistic-Continuum Mechanics Method

, , , , ,
This paper utilizes atomistic-continuum mechanics method (ACM) to investigate the mechanical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). Fundamental to the proposed concept is the perception that a carbon nanotube is a geometrical frame-like structure, and [...]

Conductive Carbon-Nanotube/Polymer Composites: Spectroscopic Monitoring of the Exfoliation Process in Water and the Crucial Role of Wetting

, , , , , , , ,
For the preparation of conductive polystyrene/SWNT nanocomposites, a recently developed, versatile, latex-based technology is applied. A low molar mass PS fraction, probably acting as a wetting agent for the SWNTs, seems to be required for [...]
