Abstract

The surface energy based solubility parameters theory was applied
to model the degree of polystyrene-functionalisation of MWCNTs
in six different organic solvents. The experimental characterization of
the polymer-functionalized MWCNTs is consistent with the predictions of this model providing a breakthrough towards the rational design of functionalized MWCNTs based on thermodynamic parameters.
