Applications and Nanocyl Solutions
In addition to their electrical conductivity, energy storage, themal conductivity and mechanical reinforcement properties, carbon nanotubes have an intrinsically high surface area; in fact, every atom is not just on a surface - each atom is on two surfaces, the inside and outside! Combined with the ability to attach essentially any chemical species to their sidewalls provides an opportunity for unique catalyst supports.
Nanocyl carbon nanotubes have a wealth of other applications thanks to their specific properties.
The exploration of carbon nanotubes in biomedical applications is relatively new, but most definitely has a lot of potential. Cells have been shown to grow on carbon nanotubes, so they appear to have no toxic effect. The cells also do not adhere to the carbon nanotubes, potentially giving rise to applications such as coatings for prosthetics and anti-fouling coatings for ships.
The ability to chemically modify the sidewalls of carbon nanotubes also lead to biomedical applications such as vascular stents, and neuron growth and regeneration.
Thanks to the combination of the high surface area and the ability to attach any chemical species to their sidewalls, Nanocyl carbon nanotubes give the opportunity for unique catalyst supports.
In fact, there is no limit to potential applications for Nanocyl carbon nanotubes, such as solar collection, nanoporous filters and coatings of all sorts. Many undiscovered applications are probable to be discovered in the years to come. Nanocyl is expanding its expertise and knowledge by continuous innovation in these domains.
