Sidewall functionalization of single-walled carbon nanotubes through electrophilic addition

Author affiliations

Abstract

Electrophilic addition of chloroform to SWNTs followed by hydrolysis resulted in the addition of hydroxy groups to the surface of the nanotubes; further esterification with propionyl chloride led to the corresponding ester derivatives, which allowed us to identify their structure, also providing better solubility in organic solvents.
