Since their discovery in the 1990s, the great potential of carbon nanotubes (cnts) has made them a focus of many research endeavors, including their application as components of biosensors the inherent chemical inertness of cnts makes their application to biosensing a challenge it is necessary. In the present paper, we study the effects of functionalization of graphene monolayers (gl) and single carbon nanotubes (cnt) with two types of amines nh, and nh2, analyzing structural, elastic. Characterization and application in li-ion batteries the focus of this dissertation is to utilize chemical functionalization as a probe to investigate the reactivity of n-doped multiwalled carbon nanotubes (n-mwcnts.

Carbon nanotubes have emerged as very promising materials in various research fields spanning from biotechnology to energy storage and transformation their poor solubility in aqueous and organic solvents and limited compatibility with polymer matrices are major drawbacks, rendering these materials incapable. Carbon nanotubes (cnts) have been chosen as basic functional material to study nanorobotics the first part of this thesis focuses on nanomanipulation systems and operation procedures that are required for characterizing and fabricating multi-walled carbon nanotubes (mwnts.
The nanotubes are formed on 12 3 production and synthesis of carbon nanotubes various techniques are being developed for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes a pulsed laser is used to vaporize the target graphite at high temperatures in the presence of inert gas the laser ablation method. 1 introduction carbon nanotubes (cnts) exhibit superior mechanical properties with a unique elastic modulus and strength that make them promising candidates for use as reinforcing fillers in polymer composites , , , , , , the excellent mechanical properties that can be achieved using cnt offer advantages over other conventional micron-sized fillers such as glass and carbon fibers. Functionalization methods employed to improve nanotube dispersionwere and the resulting this thesis contains one chapter that presents results that have been published in the form of an original journal article the complete citation for this paper and the chapters in which they 21 carbon nanotubes. The covalent functionalization of dienophiles, free radicals, and other reactive organic species is performed directly on sp2 carbon atoms of pristine graphene or go and has developed remarkably.

A thesis by graham leicester warren submitted to the office of graduate studies of functionalization of single-walled carbon nanotubes (swcnts), which is necessary in functionalization methods have been extensively studied and developed over the years  either method has its own advantages and disadvantages. 1 introduction recently, chemically functionalized single-wall carbon nanotubes (swnts) and multi-wall carbon nanotubes (mwnts) have been used as reinforcement for polymer matrix materials , , , , with strong covalent bonds between functionalized cnts and polymer chains, increases of tensile modulus and strength of the polymeric composites have been reported. Carbon nanotubes have great strength, high conductivities, and very large aspect ratios their physical, mechanical, and electrical properties are unique and ideally suited for use in structural materials, nano-electronic devices, and as a conductive filler.
The work described in this dissertation focused on the development of novel techniques for functionalization of carbon nanotubes to enable their use as components of biosensors for use in physiological conditions. The objective of this work is to develop new methods for functionalization of multiwalled carbon nanotubes this work is dedicated to study two functionalization methods the first deals with physico-chemical functionalization by filling the nanotube interior with colloidal suspensions.
