Making Nanotubes Water-Soluble, Perhaps Safer

Abstract:
In the first paper, published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, a team led by Somenath Mitra, Ph.D., at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, described a quick, simple, and reproducible method to produce water-soluble carbon nanotubes. The resulting carbon nanotubes are 125 times more water-soluble than existing ones. In addition, the new nanotubes, following a short heat treatment, can conduct electricity as well as the non-soluble ones do, which could prove important in microfluidics and biosensing applications.
