AbstractIn previous works, we have shown our discovery of C 60 @SWNT and first described the general mechanism of filling, which involves the vapor phase transport of C 60 molecules to openings in the SWNTs' walls. Here, we discuss the high-yield synthesis of C 60 @SWNT by refinements to our method. Yields are measured by a calibrated weight uptake technique, a methodology that is not subject to many of the potential pitfalls inherent to other techniques that have been applied. At certain processing condition…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
