Abstract
Single-walled carbon nanotubes have been suspended individually in water by encasing them in a thin, uniform layer of the crosslinkable polymer poly (N-vinylpyrrolidone-co-allylamine). When this polymer is crosslinked under dilute conditions, the polymer sheath, formerly stabilized by the hydrophobic effect, becomes stable to changes in the solvent system.
