3D Macroporous Solids from Chemically Cross-linked Carbon Nanotubes

Description
Abstract

Suzuki reaction for covalently interconnected 3D carbon nanotube (CNT) architectures is reported. The synthesis of 3D macroscopic solids made of CNTs covalently connected via Suzuki cross-coupling, a well-known carbon-carbon covalent bond forming reaction in organic chemistry, is scalable. The resulting solid has a highly porous, interconnected structure of chemically cross-linked CNTs. Its use for the removal of oil from contaminated water is demonstrated.
