  • From nanoscience to nanotechnology: what can and what cannot be manufactured

    Only a small fraction of contemporary nanoscience will ever emerge as a functioning and commercial nanotechnology. Far too little attention is paid to the hoops and hurdles presented by the transition from science to technology by those who assert that their work will find applications. A systematic protocol is developed for appropriate investigations.Keywords: systematic protocols, ...

  • Solubility, dispersion and bonding of functionalised carbon nanotubes in epoxy resins

    Carbon nanotubes as fillers in an epoxy matrix for mechanical reinforcement and heat diffusion enhancement are tested. We demonstrate a method to covalently graft functional molecules on carbon nanotubes to alter the filler/matrix interface incompatibilities, making the carbon nanotubes become soluble in epoxies and allows better homogenisation of the fillers in the matrix. As a result, the ...
