Synthesis of polyethylene glycol-functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes with a microwave-assisted approach for improved heat dissipation Academic Article uri icon


  • In order to improve the dispersibility of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) in aqueous media, MWCNT were functionalized with tetrahydrofurfuryl polyethylene glycol (TFPEG) in a one-pot, fast and environmentally friendly method.
