Background

Thomas Swan has a carbon nanomaterials business for the production of high-purity single and multi-wall carbon nanotubes. Using a fully scalable CVD process, developed in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, the company can manufacture commercial quantities of purified single and multi-wall carbon nanotubes which are sold under the Elicarb® trade mark and used in a wide range of industrial and academic applications.

Carbon Nanotube Applications

Industrial and academic applications of carbon nanotubes include:

  • Advanced composites (Thermal, Electrical and Structural)
  • Advanced electronics
  • Energy Storage
  • Print, Paper and Packaging
  • Fuel Cells
  • Super-Capacitors

Carbon Nanotube Types

The two types of Thomas Swan carbon nanotubes are single wall and multiwall carbon nanotubes supplied under the Elicarb brand.

Elicarb SW

High-purity single-wall carbon nanotubes delivered as a dry powder, aqueous or alcohol wet cake.

Elicarb MW

High-purity multi-wall carbon nanotubes delivered as a dry powder, aqueous or alcohol wet cake.
