General description

These are catalyst free arc-discharge multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). Multi-walled carbon nanotube core surrounded by a fused carbon shell, the remainder being multi-layer polygonal carbon nanoparticles and amorphous and graphitic carbon nanoparticles. It contains approximately 5-20 graphitic layers.

Application

Carbon nanotube, multi-walled (MWNT) belongs to the class of carbonaceous materials with excellent thermo-mechanical and electrochemical properties. This material can be used in a variety of sustainable energy applications such as solar cells, photocatalysis, biosensor, gas sensor, supercapacitor and as a filler that acts as a reinforcement to improve the mechanical property of composites.
MWNTs were used in the comparative study of oxidative treatment to carbon nanomaterials. MWNTs were used as a reinforcement in CNT/SiC nano composites. 2

Physical form

Articles

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have received much attention since their discovery in 1991 by Sumio lijima1 due to their excellent mechanical, electrical, and optical properties.

A nanocomposite is typically defined as a mixture between a host material (e.g., polymer matrix) and nanofillers with at least one dimension of less than 100 nm.

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are promising materials for use in the active channel of field-effect transistors (FETs), photoabsorbing layers of solar cells and photodetectors because of their ultrafast charge transport mobility.

Graphene's unique properties spark interdisciplinary interest; its honeycomb structure offers electrical, optical, and mechanical marvels.
