Sonochemical degradation of N-methylpyrrolidone and its influence on single walled carbon nanotube dispersion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Sonicating pure N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) rapidly produces contaminating organic nanoparticles, at increasing concentration with time, as investigated by AFM, as well as UV-vis, IR and NMR spectroscopies. The contamination issue affects carbon nanotube, and likely other nanomaterial, dispersions processed by sonication in organic solvents.
