Multifunctional single-walled carbon nanotube–cellulose composite paper

Abstract

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have been used as fillers to produce electrically conductive composite papers. While conductive composite papers have been made using other fillers, they either suffer from instability or low conductivity. Using simple papermaking techniques, we have made SWCNT–cellulose composite paper which possesses a conductivity of 3 × 10−2 S cm−1 and is comparable to or exceeds other reports of carbon nanotube–cellulose papers made by layer-by-layer assembly. These composite papers are multifunctional, having both improved electrical conductivity and enhanced flame retardant properties over the control paper.
