Jiangnan Zhang, Phillip Loya, Cheng Peng, Valery Khabashesku and Jun Lou Quantitative In Situ Mechanical Characterization of the Effects of Chemical Functionalization on Individual Carbon Nanofibers Advanced Functional Materials 22
Chemical functionalization effects on the morphology of individual carbon nanofibers (CNFs) are presented. Compared to pristine CNFs, a large discrepancy in the diameter of the hollow core between the cone section and the intact fiber section away from the fractured fluorinated CNFs surface is observed. Further, amino functional group grafting on CNFs recovers the morphology.
