Research Abstract:
Substituted C(2)B(10) carborane cages have been successfully attached to the side walls of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) via nitrene cycloaddition. The decapitations of these C(2)B(10) carborane cages, with the appended SWCNTs intact, were accomplished by the reaction with sodium hydroxide more info

Other Related Info:
The precursor SWCNT's were commercially available through Aldrich Chemical Company and used after purification as descibed as in the published literature cited under publications.
