Printed nozzle system could make uniform, versatile fibers at much lower cost. Meshes made from fibers with nanometer-scale diameters have a wide range of potential applications, including tissue engineering, water filtration, solar cells, and even […]
Samples of carbon nanotubes and polymeric phenol-formaldehyde materials hardened through baking at high temperature in the absence of oxygen: (a) a carbon nanotube forest; (b) a carbon nanotube/polymer nanocomposite; (c) a charcoal-like carbon nanotube/glassy carbon nanocomposite after baking at high temperature; (d) pure polymer (phenol-formaldehyde); (e) a charcoal-like glassy carbon block from baking a polymer at high temperature.
