Functionalization of carbon nanotubes via 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The organic functionalization of carbon nanotubes has opened new avenues with opportunities to fabricate novel nanostructures by improving both their solubility and processibility. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of azomethine ylides onto carbon nanotube (CNT) networks may play a relevant role towards this direction. CNT-based materials have been synthesized possessing differently functionalized solubilizing chains and hold strong promise as useful building blocks for the construction of novel hybrids for nano- and bio-technological applications.
