Rice University lab uses ruthenium complexes to dissolve nanotubes, add functionality A lab at Rice University has stepped forward with an efficient method to disperse nanotubes in a way that preserves their unique properties -- and adds more. The new technique allows inorganic metal complexes with different functionalities to remain in close contact with single-walled carbon nanotubes while keeping them separated in a solution. That separation is critical to manufacturers who want to spin...
