Sen Kang, Amanda R. Jones, Jeffrey S. Moore, Scott R. White and Nancy R. Sottos Carbon Black: Microencapsulated Carbon Black Suspensions for Restoration of Electrical Conductivity (Adv. Funct. Mater. 20/2014) Advanced Functional Materials 24
On page 2947, N. R. Sottos and co-workers report the preparation of robust microcapsules that contain high concentration carbon black suspensions. Prior to encapsulation, carbon black particles are surface functionalized with octadecyl chains to create stable particle suspensions, which is critical for the release of carbon black. When ruptured, these microcapsules exhibit significant particle release, enabling full conductivity restoration of damaged battery electrodes.
