Mechanical properties of boron-added carbon nanotube yarns

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Carbon nanotube (CNT)-containing materials with a binder are expected to be used for the fabrication of structural materials, electrodes, and biomaterials. These structures could then take advantage of the outstanding characteristics of individual CNTs, which could possess a large specific surface area and intriguing electronic and tremendous mechanical properties. Additionally, covalent 2D and 3D network-carbon structures from 1D building nanomaterials are gaining importance due to their fascinating mechanical properties. In this chapter, we introduce binder-free CNT yarns and report on the mechanical properties of boron-added MWCNT yarns.
