Paper Title:
A Stable Thin Film from Soluble Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes on ITO
  Abstract

Thin films of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) attached to an ITO surface (SAM–ITO) self-assembled in advance from 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane through amide covalent bonds were prepared. The SWNTs were safely obtained via a two-step process assisted by microwave radiation, which were soluble in aqueous and organic media. However, the CV behavior of SAM–ITO in acidic aqueous systems showed unexpected oxidation signals due to redox reactions involving the defects and sidewalls of soluble functionalized SWNTs. It was found that, after a conductive polymer of polyaniline was chemically incorporated onto the surface of the SWNTs by using electropolymerization method, the CV data showed a single reversible redox couple, which indicated a more stable state.
