A Study of Aged Carbon Nanotubes by Thermogravimetric Analysis
5 Jul 2011

In this application note by PerkinElmer, TGA is used to compare the effects of the UV exposure times on carbon nanotubes. High purity multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) samples were analysed using ICP. To assess decomposition, thermogravimetric weight loss curves of CNTs exposed to UV light are observed with regards to temperature. The 1st derivative of the TGA weight loss curve is generated to analysis decomposition with respect to time.
