21_19b/2009Imaging and Spectroscopy of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes during Oxidation: Defects and Oxygen Bonding (Adv. Mater. 19/2009)

Photoelectron spectromicroscopy studies revealed the morphology changes and the abundance of various oxygenated functional groups on individual multiwalled carbon nanotubes exposed to oxidizing environments. Alexei Barinov and co-workers show on page 1916 that carbonyl type bonding configurations prevail when fragmentation and extinction of the nanotubes occur.
