A novel surfactant, hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC), was firstly used to debundle Meijo single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in distilled water and 1-propanol. As comparison, common surfactants (SDBS and Triton) were used to disperse Meijo SWNTs in 1-propanol and distilled water. And the dispersibility of mixed surfactants, HPC/SDBS and HPC/Triton, were also tested. After short ultrasonication and centrifugation, stable supernatant of HPC-SWNTs has been obtained, and HPC show the best dispersibility to Meijo SWNTs. The HPC-SWNTs solution was used to prepare transparent conductive films on PET substrate by spray coating method. After being soaked in 1-propanol and HNO3, the sheet resistance decreased from 8,440 Ω/□ to 4,175Ω/□ at 90% transmittance. TEM, UV-Vis-NIR spectra, and Raman spectra were performed to characterize the SWNT solutions and films.
