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.

Graduate Research Assistant in Polymer nanocomposites field.


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
