The Effects of Acid Treatment Methods on the Diameter Dependent Fracture of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effects of acid treatment methods on the fracture of single walled carbon nanotubes are investigated using gel electrophoresis and Raman spectroscopic techniques. The mechanism of gel electrophoresis is based on the migration of charged particles in an electric field, and the gel matrix acts as a sieve for the analyte. A comparative Raman spectroscopy analysis, performed on the migrated nanotubes in the gel, shows that small diameter tubes are cut shorter by the acid treatments.
