Carbon nanotubes of the highest purity

Abstract:
High-quality carbon nanotubes (CNT) for a wide variety of applications can now be manufactured on an industrial scale at considerably lower costs than before. Bayer MaterialScience AG plans to market the nano-sized materials worldwide under the trade name Baytubes®. The new process for manufacturing Baytubes® was developed in collaboration with Bayer Technology Services GmbH, a Bayer Group service company with a wealth of know-how in process technology. Until now, the high price of up to EUR 1,000.00 per kilogram and the fluctuating production quality prevented more widespread use of nanotubes.

“For the first time, we can achieve consistent material purity of over 99 percent and significantly reduce manufacturing costs,” says Martin Schmid, head of the Carbon Nanotubes project at Bayer MaterialScience. “Adding just small quantities of Baytubes® can make a plastic car fender so electrically conductive that it can be painted without any further pretreatment, using environmentally friendly waterborne or powder coatings. In a similar manner, we can make films for antistatic packaging materials, such as those used for sophisticated electronic components.”
