Pagination or Media Count:
As we proposed originally, the objective of the project is to synthesize and functionalize vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes VA-CNTs for multifunctional applications. Along with the development of advanced CVD and solutions method for controlled synthesis of VACNTs, we have also develop leading-edge functionalization strategies to prepare VA-CNT with various tailor-made architecturesstructures for a large variety of applications, including energy- e.g., supercapacitors, batteries, solar cells, fuel cells and biorelated devices e.g., biosensors, biomimetic dry adhesives. This project has led to more than 40 journal publications, including Nature Nanotechnology 2, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2, Advanced Materials 5, Energy Environ. Sci. 2, ACS Nano 3, Nano Lett. 1, Acc. Chem. Res. 1, and Chem. Rev. 1, 3 book chapters, and received numerous commentaries appeared in scientific, business, and popular press please see Events News at httpcase.educseechedaigroupnews.html and many others on internet.
