Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes to Find Extensive Use in Versatile Applications, States Future Markets in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com07 Mar 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are being investigated on a wide scale, and amid the diversity of semiconductor nanomaterials that have been discovered over the last 20 years, are still exceptionally well suited for applications in high-performance electronic devices, sensors, etc.
The industrial-scale manufacture of SWNTs has been commenced, opening up novel market opportunities in transistors, transparent conductive films, sensors and memory devices.
SWNTs are deemed to be one of the high-potential candidates to be used as building blocks in next-generation electronics, and surpass graphene for a selection of applications. Nevertheless, the most advanced opportunities require the ability to create ideally aligned, horizontal arrays of purely semiconducting SWNTs, in chemically pristine forms.
SWNTs have a host of unparalleled properties, which are beneficial for a vast scope of applications, encompassing stretchable electronics. They have exclusively high Young’s modulus of elasticity and tensile, and are the strongest known material. SWNT films are characterised by high flexibility and transparency. Additionally, due to their ability to offer very high resistance to currents, SWNTs are capable of replacing aluminium and copper in fast-integrated charging/discharging circuits.
Zeon Corporation, KH Chemicals, Thomas Swan and OCSiAl, amid others, are the leading players in the market.
