Carbon nanotubides: an alternative for dispersion, functionalization and composites fabrication

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this review, we systematically describe the state-of-knowledge in the area of carbon nanotubides (CNTDs). CNTDs can be used for achieving highly concentrated dispersions of SWCNTs and can also be used as an important intermediate for covalent chemical modification. In recent years, researchers have used SWCNTDs as starting materials for the functionalization of SWCNTs with functionalities such as alkyl chains, carboxylic acids, sulfide, amino, hydroxyl, silyl, bromide, ethers, ketones and polymers. Also, we discussed the observed selectivity on the covalent functionalization towards certain classes of CNTs. Finally, we describe the use of SWCNTDs in the manufacture of fibers, films and other functional materials.
