The fundamental question when dealing with carbon nanotubes in liquids, particularly in water, is: are they dissolved or dispersed? In this article, we highlight and discuss this issue and controversy in literature considering their size, nature of existence in the liquid, stability, and their behavior in the liquid medium. Consequently, it is suggested to use the term dispersion rather than solution.
