Long nanotubes make strong fibers



Houston TX (SPX) Oct 18, 2017
To make continuous, strong and conductive carbon nanotube fibers, it's best to start with long nanotubes, according to scientists at Rice University. The Rice lab of chemist and chemical engineer Matteo Pasquali, which demonstrated its pioneering method to spin carbon nanotube into fibers in 2013, has advanced the art of making nanotube-based materials with two new papers in the American Chemical Society's ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. The first paper characterized 19 batches of nano ... read more
