Controlled reversible debundling of single-walled carbon nanotubes by photo-switchable dendritic surfactants

Author affiliations

Abstract

Stimulus responsive surfactants based on dendritic glycerol azobenzene conjugates were used to solubilize and debundle single-walled carbon nanotubes in aqueous media. Their debundling property as well as their reaggregation behavior upon irradiation with light was examined and light triggered reversible bundling and precipitation are shown.
