Non-covalent ruthenium polypyridyl complexes–carbon nanotubes composites: an alternative for functional dissolution of carbon nanotubes in solution

Author affiliations

Abstract

The dispersion of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in the presence of water soluble polypyridyl complexes of the general formula [Rux(bpy)yL]2+ (L = dppz, dppn, tpphz) is reported. These ligands have extended planar π systems, which aid in the solubilization of SWCNTs via π–π interactions.
