NIST Publishes Recommended Practice Guide for SWNTs
National Nanomanufacturing Network: NIST has published a new Recommended Practice Guide for the measurement of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Released in March 2008, "Measurement Issues in Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes" is a report of the 2005 NASA-NIST workshop dedicated to nanotube purity, dispersion and measurement techniques. The report covers thermogravimetric analysis, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and optical, electron and probe Microscopy.
The report is available for free download from NIST.
