Residual metallic contamination of transferred chemical vapor deposited graphene

Lupina, G., et al. ACS Nano 2015 DOI: 10.1021/acsnano.5b01261 Wet transfer processes that are often used to place CVD graphene onto application substrates are shown to result in the trace contamination of the material. These purities can adversely affect graphene’s otherwise exceptional properties, with implications for electronic and optoelectronic applications. Link: Moorfield products: nanoCVD-8G

Selection, characterisation and mapping of complex electrochemical processes at individual single-walled carbon nanotubes: the case of serotonin oxidation

Güell, A. G., et al. Faraday Discussions 2014 DOI: 10.1039/C4FD00054D SWNTs are employed for the electrochemical detection of the neurotransmitter serotonin. In this report, the detection mechanism is investigated at the single-SWNT level using a variery of techniques. The results indicate that pristine SWNTs exhibit a high level of activity as sensors for biologically-relevant species. […]

Nanoscale electrocatalysis: Visualizing oxygen reduction at pristine, kinked, and oxidized sites on individual carbon nanotubes

Byers, J. C., et al. Journal of the American Chemical Society 2014 DOI: 10.1021/ja505708y Electrochemical techniques, in combination with SWNTs produced using nanoCVD-8N technology, are used to demonstrate that carbon nanotubes exhibit significant activity even when not doped, modified or defected.

Mapping nanoscale electrochemistry of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes

Güell, A. G., et al. Nano Letters 2014 DOI: 10.1021/nl403752e Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), made using nanoCVD-8N technology, are probed using electrochemical techniques. The high-resolution measurements enable the properties of individual SWNTs to be examined. The findings are important for future design of devices employing SWNT electrodes.
