Preparation and Properties of Polymer-Wrapped Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes


Intimate electrical contact occurs between a substituted poly(metaphenylenevinylene) (PmPV) and bundles of single‐walled nanotubes (SWNT) as evidenced by atomic force microscopy, optical, and electronic measurements carried out on single, isolated SWNT/PmPV structures (see picture). PmPV may provide a useful route toward "functionalizing" the SWNT without destroying their electrical character.
