Carbon nanomaterials (CNMs), such as single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), and graphene (Figure 1), have diverse commercial applications including lighter and stronger composite materials, improved energy storage devices, more sensitive sensors, and smaller transistors.
Improved multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) have been recently developed by CoMoCAT® technique and adopted in a significant number of applications, including batteries, water filter membranes, and electric or thermal conducting polymer composites.
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
Although the idea of carrying on manipulations at smaller and smaller scales has been around for quite some time the birth of nanotechnology, at least on an ideological level, is usually traced back to a speech by Richard Feynman at...
Graphene is a one-atomic-layer thick two-dimensional material made of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. Its fascinating electrical, optical, and mechanical properties ignited enormous interdisciplinary interest from the physics, chemistry, and materials science fields.
Dendrimers are just one class of nano-sized materials that are explored to develop new life-saving technologies. Single-wall carbon nanotubes are used to make miniaturized sensors for DNA, pathogens, and chemicals – for example glucose sensors. Multi-wall nanotubes, nanoclays, and ceramic...
Professor Aran (Claremont University, USA) thoroughly discusses the engineering of graphene based materials through careful functionalization of graphene oxide, a solution processable form of graphene.
Recently, layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly has emerged as a versatile, gentle and, simple method for immobilization of functional molecules in an easily controllable thin film morphology.1,2 In this short review, we introduce recent advances in functional systems fabricated by using the...
