Abstract

Single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT)/poly(methyl methacrylate) and SWNT/polyacrylonitrile composite nanofibers were electrospun with SWNT bundles as the cores and the polymers as the shells. This was a novel approach for processing core (carbon nanotube)-shell (polymer) nanofibers. Raman spectroscopy results show strain-induced intensity variations in the SWNT radial breathing mode and an upshift in the tangential (G) and overtone of the disorder (G′) bands, suggesting compressive forces on the SWNTs in the electrospun composite fibers. Such fibers may find applications as conducting nanowires and as atomic force microscopy tips.
