Abstract

In this paper, we have investigated the influence of the structure of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), polymers and solvents on the formation of honeycomb structure films of CNTs/polymers. Casting non-polar solvents that contain CNTs, a dispersant polymer and an amphiphilic polymer under high humidity produced honeycomb structure films on the substrate. Combination of narrow radius multi-walled CNTs and an acrylate copolymer-type dispersant bearing pyrene and long alkanes provided ordered honeycomb structured films. Using a dispersant that contains a hemiacetal as an acidresponsive function improved the properties of the formed composite honeycomb films by an acid treatment as a trigger.
