Title

X-ray photoelectron, Raman and attenuated total reflection-infrared spectroscopy studies of sonochemically oxidized multiwalled carbon nanotubes

Abstract

"A range of methods for oxidation of CNT surfaces have been developed with varying success. A new sonochemical treatment method has recently been developed by Xing et al. [J. Phy. Chem. B 2004, 108, 19255] which yields a homogeneous, high-density oxidized CNT surface. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Attenuated Total Reflection-Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR-IR), Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), cyclic voltammetry and settling speed measurements were used to characterize the oxidized surfaces at interval times of sonochemical treatment. Contained in this thesis are details and results of the XPS, Raman and ATR-IR spectroscopy investigations"--Abstract, leaf iv.
