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 ...
Templated growth of graphene: A novel method for efficient graphene synthesis
A novel templated growth process for graphene structures is proposed and demonstrated. Extended, pristine sheets of graphene can be synthesized by additively reacting carbon into a pre-existing graphene sheet which is on ...
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 ...
Atomic-scale investigation of polydiacetylene nanowires by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy
Nanowires comprised of polydiacetylene, a conjugated polymer, have been analyzed at the nanoscale using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy. STM analysis shows that these nanowires exhibit unique electronic ...
