Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) have chemically derived from graphene, an allotrope of carbon. It is a one-dimensional material due to its high aspect ratio. The SWCNT is a one atom thick sheet of graphene that looks like a tube. There are various methods to produce the Single walled carbon nanotubes; however, the Catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD) method is one of the popular techniques. We use the same to produce this product. It is one of the popular types of nanotubes, and it possesses a 0 to 2 eV band gap.
At the core, the single walled carbon nanotubes have sp2 hybrid bonds, and the diameter ranges from 0.7 and 10 nm. Ideally, the diameter is less than or equal to 2 nm. Typically, the product has two configurations - zigzag and armchair.
• Zigzag configuration – It has a graphene-like structure that changes path at a 60-degree angle that alternates in a zigzag pattern on every next step of the bond.
• Armchair configuration – The armchair configuration is similar to the zigzag configuration, the only difference being that the structure changes the path twice. That means there are two turns to the right and left on every four steps, while that of the zigzag was only one.
We offer single-walled carbon nanotubes in powder as well as in dispersion form. Since we are the product manufacturers and sellers, we also customize the product according to the client's requirements if the order is in bulk. The functionalized groups of the single walled carbon nanotubes are also available on demand. If the researcher wishes to disperse the product in aqueous solvents, it must opt for the functionalized groups.
