Abstract

With careful removal of acid-oxidative lattice fragments and use of acid-base titrations, the covalent reactivity of covalently bound carboxylic groups on multi-walled carbon nanotube surfaces has been directly confirmed, including intermediate states, for carbodiimide promoted amidation reactions.
