Elicarb® Carbon Nanotubes

carbonnanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are seamless, carbon cylinders which have unique mechanical and electronic properties. There are two major types of carbon nanotubes: single-walled (SWNTs) and multi-walled (MWNTs).

Since their discovery in 1991 there has been much published research on these exciting new materials: and now industrial applications are emerging which require a reliable, high quality supply of carbon nanotube materials. Thomas Swan is strongly positioned to supply high purity SWNTs and MWNTs through its range of Elicarb® carbon nanotube products. These products are available today in quantities from gramme to multiple kilogrammes.

Elicarb® SW Low Residue Through our continued product development we now offer a new low-residue product which has advantages in advanced electronics and energy storage applications.
