Kang Zhang, Qing Zhang, Cao Liu, Nicola Marzari and Francesco Stellacci Diameter Effect on the Sidewall Functionalization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes by Addition of Dichlorocarbene Advanced Functional Materials 22
The influence of dichlorocarbene functionalization on the structural and electrical properties of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with diameters ranging from 1.2 to 2.2 nm are studied. SWNTs with small diameters are found to be functionalized more easily than those with large diameters. Furthermore, electrical conductance is preserved for most SWNTs, while effective bandgap variations are generally observed.
