Application Note: A Study of Aged Carbon Nanotubes by Thermogravimetric Analysis
26 October 2011

This application note highlights the use of Thermogravimetry as a simple analytical technique for the analysis of commercially available high purity multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT). The MWCNTs were subjected to UV aging prior to analysis to show the effects of prolonged exposure on decomposition rates. The Pyris 1 TGA was shown to deliver accurate results quickly because of its low mass furnace, accurate temperature control and fast cooling for higher sample throughput.
