Mixing up nanotubes causes complications

Abstract:
As applications of polymer-nanotube composites take off, mixing up suspensions of nanotubes will be an increasingly important processing operation. But researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the University of Kentucky and Michigan Technological University, all in the US, have found that certain mixing conditions may actually cause the nanotubes to separate.
