Efficient synthesis of tailored magnetic carbon nanotubesvia a noncovalent chemical route

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report here an efficient noncovalent chemical route to dense and uniform assembly of magnetic nanoparticles onto multi-walled carbon nanotubes within a single-layer configuration. While preserving the electrical conduction behavior of the nanotube network itself, the resulting carbon nanotube derivatives exhibit a distinct superparamagnetism, and can be magnetically manipulated via a quick and reversible mode.
