Abstract

In this paper, we propose and verify a theoretical model of the development of dispersion quality of aqueous carbon nanotube (CNT) colloid as a function of sonochemical yield of the sonication process. Four different surfactants; Triton X-100, Pluronic F-127, CTAB and SDS were studied. From these four SDS had the lowest dispersion performance which was surprising. Optical dispersion quality results fits well with proposed theoretical model.
