Abstract The orientation factor is significantly important for producing highly strong conductive carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers. Highly oriented CNT fibers can be obtained by the wet-spinning of CNTs in a superacid. We present a theoretical model for obtaining well-aligned CNT fibers, which may have superior properties. Our model predicts the minimum draw ratio ( D R 0 ) at various Deborah numbers ( De ) for CNT fibers with the target orientation. In addition, the stable operation window in the D...

Abstract Floating catalytic chemical vapor deposition (FCCVD) is an attractive method for synthesizing carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers of high strength, toughness and electrical conductivity. During the process of CNT fibers synthesis, the assembly structure, such as the CNT orientation, CNT length, and the inter-tube particle impurity inside the CNT fibers, are key factors to determine the mechanical properties of CNT fibers. However, the regulation mechanism of the assembly structure during the p...

High alignment and densification of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are of key importance for strengthening CNT fibers, whereas direct stretching has a very limited effect when CNTs are highly entangled. We report that by lubricating CNT surfaces with viscous alcohols, the relative motion between CNTs improves because of the reduced sliding energy barrier; thus non-stretched regions are effectively eliminated. Owing to the very efficient optimization of the assembled structure, the stretched CNT fibers ...

Carbon nanotube fibers (CNTFs) are directly spun from a floating-catalyst chemical vapor deposition apparatus using gas-phase carbon and an iron nanocatalyst. The essential synthesis and post-treatment factors that affect the strength of CNTFs are investigated to obtain CNTFs with greater strength than those of any previously reported high-performance fibers. The key factors optimized included the degree of rotational flow inside the reactor, the ratio of the starting materials, and the post-syn...

: The development of fiber-based smart electronics has provoked increasing demand for high-performance and multifunctional fiber materials. Carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers, the 1D macroassembly of CNTs, have extensively been utilized to construct wearable electronics due to their unique integration of high porosity/surface area, desirable mechanical/physical properties, and extraordinary structural flexibility, as well as their novel corrosion/oxidation resistivity. To take full advantage of CNT fi...

Abstract Few-wall carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles with unparalleled graphitic perfection and a solitary, prominent radial breathing mode (RBM) associated with metallic chirality have been mechanically stretched in chlorosulfonic acid (CSA) to a degree so far unseen in CNT textiles (150–250% of original length) with notably little tension required. This dramatically enhanced their microstructural alignment and density and, after most of the residual CSA was removed by a vacuum bake, the de-doped f...

Mechanically strong carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers have increasingly become the focus of the present research in the fiber industry. However, the weak or even a lack of interconnections between adjacent CNTs induces much inter-tube slippages during fiber failure, and thus results in their low mechanical strength. Moreover, achieving fast cross-linking between neighbouring CNTs on a large scale to prevent the failure by slip is still a big challenge. Herein we report an ultrafast and continuous ten...

Developing methods to assemble nanomaterials into macroscopic scaffolds is of critical significance at the current stage of nanotechnology. However, the complications of the fabrication methods impede the widespread usages of newly developed materials even with the superior properties in many cases. Here, we demonstrate the feasibility of a highly-efficient and potentially-continuous fiber-spinning method to produce high-performance carbon nanotube (CNT) fiber (CNTF). The processing time is <1 m...

Abstract Highly conducting and lightweight wires can be created based on carbon nanotube (CNT) assembly materials, where the inter-tube electron transport plays a key role. Here we report a gas infiltration of bromine to improve the electrical properties of CNT fibers, owing to the enhanced inter-tube electron hopping. Although Br infiltration is mainly a physical absorption process, with just a little fraction to form covalent bonding with the defect of CNTs, it can induce electron transfer fro...
