Molecular bottle-brush functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with superior dispersibility in water are prepared by a one-pot synthetic methodology. Elongating the main-chain and side-chain length of molecular bottle-brushes can further increase SWCNT dispersibility. They show significant enhancement of SWCNT dispersibility up to four times higher than those of linear molecular functionalized SWCNTs.
