Subhra Kanti Mandal, Tanmoy Kar and Prof. Prasanta Kumar Das Pristine Carbon-Nanotube-Included Supramolecular Hydrogels with Tunable Viscoelastic Properties Chemistry - A European Journal 19
Tubes included: Amino acid/dipeptide-based amphiphilic hydrogelators with an imidazolium head group incorporate large amounts of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) without compromising their intrinsic properties. Remarkable enhancement (ca. 85-fold) in the mechanical rigidity of the resulting soft nanocomposite is observed, which can be modulated by varying the amount of incorporated SWNTs (see figure).
