This product was synthesized without substrate using InALA process.
This is the nanocarbon with new structure made by forming the tubes of graphene flower. Although this material has thick diameter, the number of graphene lamination is a few, resulting in thin thickness similar to Graphene Flower. Thus, it has soft string-like shape with tightly cohering inside (due to van der Waals force).
(outer diameter: 30-100 nm, wall thickness: 1-2 nm).
This material evades the bundling problem of monolayer CNT (as well as few-layer CNT).
Due to a few layers of lamination, close adhesion is possible thanks to van der Waals force.
Needle shape that causes health problem can be avoided
It is possible to enlarge the inner space while dipping in a solvent.
It can been effectively utilized for DDS (drug delivery system) substrate, chemical reaction field, and doping.
Excellent in electroconductivity and thermal conductivity (equivalent to few-layer graphene).
It has the shape of string (flat noodle) with thin thickness.
