Regioregular poly(3-hexyl-thiophene) helical self-organization on carbon nanotubes
Giulianini, Michele, Waclawik, Eric R., Bell, John M., De Crescenzi, Maurizio, Castrucci, Paola, Scarselli, Manuela, & Motta, Nunzio (2009) Regioregular poly(3-hexyl-thiophene) helical self-organization on carbon nanotubes. Applied Physics Letters, 95(1), 013304-1---013304-3.
Mixtures of Regioregular Poly(3-hexyl-thiophene) (rrP3HT) and multi wall carbon nanotubes have been investigated by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy in Ultra High Vacuum. Carbon nanotubes covered by rrP3HT have been imaged and analyzed, providing a clear evidence that this polymer self assembles on the nanotube surface following geometrical constraints and adapting its equilibrium chain-to-chain distance. Largely spaced covered nanotubes have been analyzed to investigate the role played by nanotube chirality in the polymer wrapping, evidencing strong rrP3HT interactions along well defined directions.
