Carbon nanotube aerogel developed for low cost, industrial scale

By / May 3, 2010

Scientists at the Paul Pascal Research Center in France have developed an industrial-scale method for low cost manufacturing of carbon aerogels from agglomerated carbon nanotubes. According to the patent application (PDF), fabrication includes the following steps: (1) preparing an aqueous dispersion of carbon nanotubes in water in the presence of a dispersing agent; (2) forming…
