Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A facile and efficient method has been developed for coating MWNTs with solvent resistant polymer in scCO2, which permits the selective deposition of high molecular weight fluorinated graft poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) polymer onto MWNTs in scCO2 under 100–170 bar at 40 °C and forms quasi one-dimensional nanostructures with conducting cores and insulating surfaces.
