A Method for Functionalization foa Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Chemical Sensing Applications

Erica Forzani (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

The present inventios provides a gneeral way to functionalize carbon nanotubes for different chemical and biosensing application, including both gas and liquid phase detections. We have demonstrated high sensitivity, selectivity, stability and versatility of the methods. Major advantages over existing methods are:- The modification is highly stable- The electronic properties of the carbon nanotubes are preserved after functionalization- The modification method allows individual addressing of the carbon nanotubes- The method is general and can be tuned for various different applications without changing the basic fabrication and processing steps.
