Abstract

Uniform single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) polycarbonate composites were fabricated using noncovalently functionalized, soluble SWNTs. These composites showed dramatic improvements in the electrical conductivity and mechanical tensile strength at low SWNT loading. We also observed a stress-induced SWNT alignment in polycarbonate film, which is very difficult to achieve with pristine SWNTs.
