F Functionalized Single Walled-Double Walled Carbon Nanotubes
F Functionalized Single Walled-Double Walled Carbon Nanotubes are produced by CCVD and is further purified or functionalized using a Dielectric Barrier Discharge process which provides greater control over the desired type & amount of Fluorine (a halogen) functionality which produces an exfoliated product that is much easier to disperse in the host matrix.
Carbon Nanotubes have proven to offer a unique properties of stiffness and strength largely due to their high aspect ratio and all carbon structure. The thermal and electrical conductivity found in carbon nanotubes is very high compared to other conductive or fibrous additive materials.
Select a functionalized product when trying disperse carbon nanotubes into certain host matrices to assist in dispersion.
Carbon nanotubes with fluorine surface functionality stands out when compared to other fiber additive materials. Fluorinated carbon nanotubes are known to be a good starting point for further sidewall derivatization of the sidewall with other molecules.
The secondary reactions involving substituting the Fluorine atom from the sidewall have been utilized to produce C-N bond formation, free radical addition, and cycloaddition.
