Functionalization of carbon nanotubes with arenedyazonium salts in urea

  • Oxana V. Kharissova (a1), H. Leija (a1) and E.G. de Casas-Ortiz (a1)


The functionalization of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) with arenediazonium salts, formed in situ from anilines as dimethyl-5-aminoisophthalate, sulfanilamide and p-anisidine, using the environmentally solvent urea. The functionalized SWNTs were then characterized using spectroscopic and microscopic methods along with thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). According to enhance solubility in solvents after that introduce them into the industrial processes. The molecules added appear on the nanotubes like chemical anchors.
