Abstract

We demonstrate that MWCNTs can be dispersed in common organic solvents as single tubes using a single hexabenzocoronene (HBC) unit at the end of a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) chain. The concentration of the HBC-based additive needed to disperse MWCNTs is substantially lower than the concentration needed for existing additives.
