Title: High product yield in a narrow column configuration of carbon nanotubes: A Pathway for nanosynthetic machine
Author: Gordon, M.; Santhanam, K.S.V.
Abstract: Multiwalled functionalized carbon nanotubes have been aligned in a narrow column configuration of 3.1 cm X 0.2 cm through which the organic reactants are allowed to travel through gravity. The products coming out of the column have been examined by GC/MS and UV-VIS absorption spectroscopy. With organic reactants such as aniline and hydrogen peroxide in 1:1 molar ratio, a high yield of azo compound has been obtained through the coupling of nitrosobenzene and aniline. This suggests that the column configuration is ideal for organic synthesis and for the development of nanosynthetic machines.
