Abstract

Thin, flexible and tough bucky paper fabricated by filtering a stable suspension of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) was characterized from the viewpoint of its pore structure and oxidation stability as compared with that derived from single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The N2 adsorption isotherms of DWNTs and SWNTs at 77 K were of type II and type IV, respectively, and also the micropore volume in DWNTs was three times greater than that in SWNTs. The onset temperature of oxidation in DWNTs was enhanced by ca. 200 °C due to their coaxial structure. The expected high mechanical and electrical properties when combined with their high surface area and high structural integrity make the DWNTs bucky paper promising materials for numerous applications.
