Research on Solubilization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes by Functionalization
Carbon nanotubes is a current subject of intense research for their special structures, good conductivity, well mechanic and semicondcutor property. But the lack of solubility and the difficult manipulation in any solvents and aqueous have imposed great limitations to the use of carbon nanotubes. The chemical functionalization of can solved these problem, can be grouped into covalent modification and noncovalent modification. we review their researching progress in these and summarize their application.
