Functionalization of carbon nanomaterials for biomedical and nanocomposite applications
New derivatives of carbon nanostructures: nanotubes, nano-onions and nanocrystalline diamonds were obtained through fluorination and subsequent functionalization with sucrose. Chemically modified nanocarbons show high ...
Processing, spinning, and fabrication of continuous fibers of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) show great promise for use in a wide range of applications. One of the most promising avenues for attaining these applications is the dispersion of SWNTs at high concentrations in ...
Investigating mechanical and physical properties of nanostructures
In the first part of the dissertation, mechanical properties of bundles of carbon nanotubes are investigated. Earlier experiments showed that these tubes are tightly packed in the bundles, proving that they are strongly ...
