Creating covalent bonds between Cu and C at the interface of metal/open-ended carbon nanotubes Academic Article uri icon


  • Anchoring vertically oriented carbon nanotubes to copper using linker molecules. Theoretical calculations show linkers form bridge like covalent bonds with two adjacent Cu atoms on (100) and (110) and linear bonds on (111).
