To Dr. Mohammed Fahim Ansari

Your question is very interested. The influence of the ultrasound waves on the strength of CNTs depends of the following parameters:
1.- Medium
2.- Power of the ultrasound waves (Amplitude)
3.- Frequency
4.- Time of exposition to the ultrasound waves
5.- Lenght of the CNTs.

For example, if the ultrasound waves travel in a low viscosity medium, the attenuation of the waves will be lower than a high viscosityu medium; thus, if the amplitude of the ultrasound waves in that low viscosity medium is high enough, and if the lenght of the CNTs is too, the CNTs will experiment a rupture of their bonds, therefore, the strength of the CNTs will be affected.

There is a good article that explains how the influence of several parameters can influence on the mechanical properties of CNTs:

hi every body.

Rep. to Dr.Mohammed Fahim Ansari

Does sonication weakens not the strength of SWCNT but it can separate CNT of MWCNT

Any answer?
Does sonication weakens the strength of carbon nanotubes?

The ICPC Nanonet project (EU funded under FP7) is aimed at networking nanoscientists and researchers across the globe to help bridge the nano divide and avoid a knowledge apartheid.

It offers a free open access Nano Archive of nearly 7,000 items including many full texts at http://www.nanoarchive.org. Please contact me if you would like to archive your research and I will create an editor's account for you.

You can join the international network at http://www.icpc-nanonet.org. Registration is free. The website also contains information for parties interested in FP7 collaboration, details of free webinars taking place (three in September), information about researchers and organisations and much more.

I am also interested in communicating with researchers in sub-Saharan Africa for the annual region report. If you would like your institution's research showcased in the report, please get in touch.

Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at dimensions of roughly 1 to 100 nanometers, where unique phenomena enable novel applications. Encompassing nanoscale science, engineering and technology, nanotechnology involves imaging, measuring, modeling, and manipulating matter at this length scale.
At the nanoscale, the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials differ in fundamental and valuable ways from the properties of individual atoms and molecules or bulk matter.
The field of nanocomposites involves the study of multiphase material where at least
one of the constituent phases has one dimension less than 100 nm. The promise of nanocomposites lies in their multifunctionality, the possibility of realizing unique combinations of properties unachievable with traditional materials.
This ability to tailor composites by using nanosize building blocks of heterogeneous chemical species has been demonstrated in several interdisciplinary fields.
Recently, nanoscale filled polymer composites in which the filler is <100 nm in at least one dimension was instead of traditional micrometer-scale polymer composites.
Widely Polymer nanocomposites used in several interdisciplinary fields.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
