Negative pattern of carbon nanotubes and carbon nanotube composite comprising surface-modified carbon nanotubes
Park, Shin and Lee of Samsung, South Korea, formed a negative pattern of carbon nanotubes or a polymerized carbon nanotube composite having an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) by modifying the surfaces of the carbon nanotubes with polymerizable functional groups such as oxirane and anhydride groups and subjecting the surface-modified carbon nanotubes either to a photolithography process or to a heatcuring process.  By virtue of the present invention, desired patterns of carbon nanotubes can be easily made on the surfaces of various substrates, and polymerized carbon nanotube composites improved in hardening properties can be made without additional polymers.

Nano-fibrils in a fuser member
Qi et al of Xerox, Connecticut, developed a fuser member consisting of a substrate and a release layer. The release layer is disposed on the substrate and includes carbon nanotubes. The carbon nanotubes have a hydroxyphenylmaleimide group covalently bonded to an outer surface of the plurality of carbon nanotubes and a fluoroelastomer shell layer covalently bonded to the hydroxyphenylmaleimide. The carbon nanotubes are in dispersed one or more fluoro-materials. (RDC 7/9/2012)

Electromagnetic shielding composite and method for making the same
Lin et al of Tsinghua University and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, Taiwan, developed an electromagnetic shielding composite including a polymer and  carbon nanotubes in a form of carbon nanotube film structure.  A method for making an electromagnetic shielding composite includes the steps of: (a) providing an array of carbon nanotubes; (b) drawing a carbon nanotube film from the array of carbon nanotubes; (c) providing a substrate, covering at least one carbon nanotube film on the substrate to form a carbon nanotube film structure; and (d) providing a polymer and combining the carbon nanotube film structure with the polymer to form an electromagnetic shielding composite.
