By Marc Monthioux

Meta-Nanotubes are a brand new new release of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) which end result from the chemical transformation of standard CNTs and their next mix with international fabrics (atoms, molecules, chemical teams, nanocrystals) by means of numerous methods equivalent to functionalisation, doping, filling, and substitution. those new nanomaterials express better or new houses, resembling reactivity, solubility, and magnetism, which pristine CNTs don't possess.  Their many functions comprise digital and optoelectronic units, chemical and biosensors, sunlight cells, drug supply, and bolstered glasses and ceramics.

Carbon Meta-Nanotubes: Synthesis, houses and Applications discusses those 3rd new release carbon nanotubes and the original features they own. starting with a basic assessment of the topic, this publication covers the 5 major different types of meta-nanotubes, namely:

  • Doped Carbon Nanotubes
  • Functionalised Carbon Nanotubes
  • Decorated or lined Carbon Nanotubes
  • Filled Carbon Nanotubes
  • Heterogeneous Nanotubes

delivering unheard of insurance of those 3rd new release or meta-nanotubes, and probabilities for destiny improvement, this e-book is key for somebody engaged on carbon nanotubes.

Example text

Furthermore, modifying CNTs and combining them with foreign components appeared to open many more promising developments than in merely electronics. CNTs had to no longer be considered as such but as starting materials to be used as host, substrate, mould, structural skeleton, and so on. A whole specific field of research was then opened, and it was necessary to find a way to differentiate modified CNTs from pristine ones and to accurately discriminate the various forms of modified CNTs. This is where we created the word ‘meta-nanotubes’ [11,12] (from ancient Greek metá, meaning ‘beyond, after’), defined as modified nanotubes resulting from the transformation of pristine nanotubes by various ways, which leaves the nanotubes being associated with a foreign component X, where X can be atoms or molecules, chemical functions, or phases.

It is a quite important topic mostly developed since to address some of the major issues of pristine CNTs such as reactivity, dispersability, solubility, and so on which are compulsory properties for many processes involving CNTs. 3 Decorated (Coated) Nanotubes (X /CNTs) These are nanotubes at the surface of which the foreign component X is a genuine phase, from the point of view of chemistry and structure. It is deliberately bonded to the CNT surface, either as a continuous coating or a discontinuous decoration.

4), a single catalyst particle can generate two nanotubes at once (growing in opposed directions). Growing more than one (possibly two) nanotubes per catalyst particle is therefore exceptional, whereas it is rather common when growing platelet-type CNFs (p-CNFs), for energetic reasons [11]. e. in the range 1–3 nm) catalyst particles to be formed first. 4), whereas facetted particles tend to systematically generate h-MWCNTs or h-CNFs whose graphenes making the tube wall or the fibre body are partly parallel to the particle faces.
