Development of new techniques for functionalizing single-wall carbon nanotubes for composite and biological systems
Building from established methods of using diazonium salts to derivatize single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), new methodologies for achieving functionalized individual nanotubes that are compatible with a wide variety of ...
Design, synthesis and testing of fullerene-functionalized devices and machines
Herein is described the design, synthesis and testing of molecules that contain fullerenes as essential parts. In chapter 1, a series of multiple fullerene terminated oligo( p -phenylene ethynylene) (OPE) hybrid compounds ...
Towards large scale production and separation of carbon nanotubes
Since their discovery, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have boosted the research and applications of nanotechnology; however, many applications of CNTs are inaccessible because they depend upon large-scale CNT production and ...
Functionalization, coordination, and coating of carb on nanomaterials
Single-walled carbon nanotubes were covalently end-functionalized with various donor ligands in order to facilitate the coordination of metal catalyst nanoparticles. The purpose of this study was to optimize catalyst ...
