Abstract

Vertically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) synthesized by the alcohol catalytic CVD (ACCVD) technique are dispersed in water with the aid of water-dispersible conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CPNs). The interactions between CPNs and CNTs are studied with spectroscopy (UV-Vis, fluorescence and Raman) and electron microscopy techniques are used to confirm attachment of CPNs to the CNT sidewalls.
