Abstract

A suspension containing multi-wall, hollow structured carbon nanotubes were suspended in polyethylene glycol and electrosprayed. The results present an operational map identifying a parametric window in which stable cone-jet mode exists. At an electric field strength of similar to 0.26 kV/mm and corresponding flow rate of similar to 1x10(-8) m(3) s(-1) the finest droplets were generated. These droplets once deposited were analysed using optical and transmission electron microscopy and are compared with those deposits created through a control method. The electrosprayed deposits were further examined using electron diffraction and dispersive X-ray spectroscopy that forms the discussion in this article.
