Fear of water coats nanotubes with polymer multilayers
Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, US, have bonded polymer multilayers to carbon nanotubes in a non-covalent manner. The technique could find applications in areas such as biosensors. “Carbon nanotubes have numerous potential applications as a result of their outstanding mechanical and electrical properties,” Ravi Kane of Rensselaer told nanotechweb.org. “Strategies for functionalizing carbon nanotubes are critical for the pursuit of these applications.
