Beckman Coulter has released an application note detailing the hydrophobic nature of the carbon nanotubes.
‘Particle Characterisation’ seeks to explain the emerging impact carbon nanotubes are having within imaging sectors.
The paper claims that carbon nanotubes possess unique optical qualities, currently being exploited within biomedical imaging and biosensing.
Characterisation methods currently being practised with carbon nanotube technology include: dynamic light scattering, zeta potential and analytical ultracentrifugation.
The report demonstrates the use of the Beckman Coulter DelsaMax PRO, measuring the size and stability of single and double-walled carbon nanotubes in aqueous solution.
