The application of the surface energy based solubility parameter theory for the rational design of polymer-functionalized MWCNTs

Abstract

The surface energy based solubility parameters theory was applied to model the degree of polystyrene-functionalisation of MWCNTs in six different organic solvents. The experimental characterization of the polymer-functionalized MWCNTs is consistent with the predictions of this model providing a breakthrough towards the rational design of functionalized MWCNTs based on thermodynamic parameters.
