Abstract

Multiwall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been brominated by photochemical bromine addition. XPS analysis has been used to determine the amount of bromine reacted. By measuring the concentrations of the co-initiator and the monomer, multiwall carbon nanotubes functionalized with hydrosoluble polymers-polyhydroxyethylacrylate (PHEA) and polyacrylamide (PAAM)-have been obtained and characterized using the Raman, SEM, and XPS depth profile techniques. The 3-D structure of the composite films obtained from the functionalized CNTs has been studied as well.
