Length fractionation of carbon nanotubes using centrifugation


Journal Article

A study was conducted to demonstrate length fractionation of carbon nanotubes using centrifugation. The study demonstrated that the length fractionation result presented does not conflict with the results of other researchers. It was also demonstrated it is essential to exploit the transient motion regime for achieving length fractionation. The study demonstrated that approximately 0.25 mg of dispersed CoMoCat single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) were sorted by length in each of the identically prepared 15 mL centrifuge tubes, demonstrating that mg scale separation is easily obtainable.
