Seed crystals and catalyzed epitaxy of single-walled carbon nanotubes
This thesis demonstrates the continued growth of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) from seeded SWNTs in a way analogous to epitaxy or cloning; that is, the SWNTs grow as a seamless extension to the existing seeded ...
Molecular dynamics simulation of bio-fullerene interfaces
Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations were employed to study the interaction of fullerene molecules in biological environments. Initial work considers the interaction of peptides with fullerene, where a fullerene specific ...
Study of single-walled carbon nanotube reactivity and applications of the functionalized species
Significant advancements have been made recently in the area of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) functionalization using diazonium salts. Specifically research using oleum and molten urea as the solvent has opened the ...
