Abstract

Thermoanalytical and electron microscopic studies were used as characterisation tools for the determination of the composition of single walled carbon nanotube samples. A purification method proved to be effective, resulting in a three fold increase in the percentage of SWNTs present in the purified product as determined by thermogravimetric analysis. In this work we report the thermogravimetric analysis by conventional and high resolution methods of the raw SWNTs and purified SWNTs.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
