Porous carbon nanotube/polyvinylidene fluoride composite material: Superhydrophobicity/superoleophilicity and tunability of electrical conductivity

Yu, Yuanlie; Chen, Hua; Liu, Yun; Craig, Vincent; Li, Lu Hua; Chen, Ying; Tricoli, Antonio


Porous carbon nanotube/polyvinylidene fluoride (CNT/PVDF) composite material can be fabricated via formation and freeze-drying of a gel. The field emission scanning electron microscopy, nitrogen adsorption-desorption and pore size distribution analysis reveal that the introduction of a small amount of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can effectively increase the surface roughness and porosity of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). Contact angle measurements of water and oil indicate that the as-obtained...[Show more]
