Electrochemical Characterization of Films of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes and Their Possible Application in Supercapacitors


Films of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were cast from suspensions in several solvents on the surface of a Pt or Au electrode. Cyclic voltammetry of the films in MeCN did not show well-resolved waves (as distinct from films of C_(60) prepared in a similar manner). However, the increase in the effective capacitance of the electrode with a SWCNT film at 0.5 V vs. an AgQRE was 283 F/g, which is about twice that of carbon electrodes in nonaqueous solvents.
