Diameter-dependent, progressive alkylcarboxylation of single-walled carbon nanotubes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate diameter-dependent, progressive alkylcarboxylation of single-walled carbon nanotubes by recycling a modified Billups–Birch reaction. The strong diameter dependence was confirmed by Raman spectroscopy. Alkylcarboxylation made SWNTs soluble in water, allowing the more readily functionalized, smaller diameter nanotubes to be enriched by water extraction.
