Abstract

The surface of the CNTs can be chemically modified to impart a specific desired property. In general functionalization has usually been done by oxidation using HNO3, KMnO4, etc. The defects and the ends of the CNTs are thus functionalized by carboxyl groups. The current focus of the research is to develop a convenient and fast method for the functionalization of carbon nanotubes. We explore a covalent chemical strategy for functionalization of MWCNTs with amine-containing groups. The chemical interaction of the amine-containing group and the oxidized CNTs surface is confirmed by FT-IR and XPS.
