Polymeric transparent on-side conductor based on single wall carbon nanotubes

We have developed a simple and practical method to prepare one-sided conductive transparent plastics. High performance and flexible (or not) materials based on Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs) were produced.

Potential application lies where flexibility is required (ITO cannot be used then).

The interesting part of the method resides in a transfer of SWNTs onto the surface of a variety of polymers. Purity is not compulsory, so low cost can be achieved.

Current status: Patent applied for.
