Findings from Beijing Jiaotong University Reveals New Findings on Fullerenes (Infrared and microwave properties of polypyrrole/multi-walled carbon nanotube composites)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Current study results on Fullerenes have been published. According to news reporting out of Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This study analyses the formation of polypyrrole/multi-walled carbon nanotube (PPy/MWCNT) composite materials using chemical oxidation with varying amounts of MWCNTs added."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Beijing Jiaotong University, "The samples are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared emission spectroscopy, a four-probe method, and infrared thermal imaging using electromagnetic parameters. According to the test results, it is seen that the formation of PPy with the addition of MWCNTs can affect the material's infrared properties and increase the material's microwave return losses (up to -19 dB)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This production procedure can also make the peak frequency of the microwave return losses adjustable, and the composite's infrared and microwave performance becomes compatible and adjustable."
