AbstractSingle-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) have been reduced with sodium naphthalide in THF. The reduced SWCNT are not only soluble in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) to form a stable solution/suspension, but also react spontaneously at room temperature with DMSO to evolve hydrocarbon gases and are converted into functionalized SWCNT. The degree of functionalization is about 2C% and the addends are mainly methyl and small oxygen-containing hydrocarbons. The functionalized SWCNT are apparently more soluble and stable in DMSO solution. It may open a new era for further processing and applications.
