  • b'DUBLIN, May 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The "The Global Market for Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com\'s offering.\nSingle-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are one-atom-thick rolled-up graphene sheets, typically with diameters between 0.6 and 2.0 nm and lengths up to 500 mm.\nDue to these unique properties, SWCNTs have great potential for utilisation as a multi-functional additive and as the basis for creating new products with previously unattainable properties.
  • And this can be achieved using a very low concentration of SWCNTs - starting from 0.01% of the total weight of the material.\nHowever, SWCNTs have not been used in industry until recently owing to the absence of technology for their mass production and, as a consequence, their high price.
  • This has recently charge due to improvements in manufacturing and capacity increases and they are finding wider application in thin-film transistors, fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, rubber, composites, coatings and more.\nOwing to their unique structure, they exhibit excellent electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties including:\nElectrical conductivity as high as copper, but five times lighter;\n'
