Carbon nanotubes, discovered by Sumio Iijima in 1991, are categorized into single-walled nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi-walled nanotubes (MWCNTs) by their structures. MWCNTs are easy to produce and have been developed in many applications. On the other hand, SWCNTs have not been developed very much because they are difficult to make.In 2004, Dr. Kenji Hata team at AIST* discovered a revolutionary method of SWCNT synthesis, which was named as "Super Growth Method". With the innovative technology, it was realized to produce high-quality SWCNT.
Zeon Corporation developed mass production technology of the method with the support of NEDO**.
ZEONANO®SG101 is the SWCNT manufactured with "Super Growth Method" by Zeon Corporation.
