General description

Produced using CHASM′s patented CoMoCAT synthesis technology, Signis® SG65 is a single-wall carbon nanotube (CNT) product uniquely enriched in semiconducting tubes, with (6,5) chirality being most abundant. Approximately 95% of the CNTs in SG65 are semiconducting with approximately 41% of those tubes being (6,5) chirality.

Application

Suitable for use in printed semiconductors, photovoltaic devices, sensors, medical research, etc.
Carbon nanotube, single-walled (SWNT) belongs to the class of carbonaceous materials with excellent physiochemical, thermo-mechanical and electrochemical properties. This material can be used in a variety of sustainable energy applications such as solar cells, photocatalysis, thin film conductors, field effect transistors (FETs), biosensor, gas sensor, supercapacitor and nanomechanical resonators.
