Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are tubes made of carbon atoms with nanometer diameters. Reade supplies a variety of carbon nanotubes. While many specific properties of CNTs are type dependent, in general, carbon nanotubes have high electrical conductivity. They have good thermal conductivity along the tube axis that is comparable to diamonds while exhibiting elastic, flexible, stiff, tough, and strong fibers while maintaining the chemistry of carbon molecules and being free of molecular defects. This carbon chemistry allows strong Van der Waals attraction which leads to spontaneous self-assembly and roping of many nanotubes, which may be important in certain applications.

Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are an intermediary allotrope of carbon between fullerene cages and flat graphene.
Double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWNT) are similar to SWNT but are more resistant to chemical attacks.
Multi-wall carbon nanotubes consist of multiple rolled layers of graphene.

Dry powder form and dispersions available.
Typical Applications

Specific applications of CNTs depend on type; in general, CNTs are used for applications in field emission, thermal conductivity and thermal materials, energy storage, conductive plastics and adhesives, molecular electronics based on CNTs, structural applications, fibers and fabrics, biomedical applications, air and water filtration, and as catalyst supports.
