Description:
COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND PROCESSES FOR THE PREPARATION THEREOF

INTRODUCTION

Technical field

The present invention relates to composite materials and processes for the preparation thereof.

BACKGROUND

It has previously been described how to form rings or lassos around fillers (e.g., carbon nanotubes, boron nitride nanotubes and graphene), leading to filler derivatives and filler mixtures with good dispersion, good anchoring and little aggregation between filler units. This approach improves the characteristics of the nanocomposite materials as it has been demonstrated in several experiments.

The approach previously described is industrially inefficient due to the fact that sonication is required for dispersion and/or Ushape-filler complex formation and/or ML-filler formation.

Here, we describe an alternative process that makes use of the mechanical energy generated e.g., inside a ball mill to produce industrially relevant composite materials containing lassoed fillers an enhanced characteristics. The nature of the process is such that it allows the obtention of the composite materials in a single step in the absence of solvents. The products described here possess even superior characteristics due to the absence of residual solvents and reduced processing steps.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

General process.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, a SE1-precursor-ML complex is formed by the following steps:

Step X1. Provide a SE1 ;

Step X2. Provide a precursor-ML; to obtain a SE1-precursor-ML complex; where Steps X1-X2 may be performed in any order.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, SE1 is a nanotube, carbon nanotube, graphene, SWNT, MWNT, or nanowire, and the precursor-ML is a chemical structure comprising one or two or more chemical moieties with affinity for the SE1 , e.g. a Ushape or another chemical entity comprising at least one ligand moiety with affinity for the SE1 . In another preferred embodiment of the invention, a nanotube-Ushape complex is formed by the following steps:

Step YI. Provide a SE1 , where the SE1 is a nanotube;

Step Y2. Provide a precursor-ML, where the precursor-ML is a llshape comprising two chemical moieties with affinity for the nanotube; to obtain a nanotube-Ushape complex; where Steps Y1-Y2 may be performed in any order.

In another preferred embodiment of the invention, a nanotube-closed ring complex is formed by the following steps:

Step Z1. Provide a SE1, where the SE1 is a nanotube;

Step Z2. Provide a precursor-ML, where the precursor-ML is a Ushape comprising two chemical moieties with affinity for the nanotube;

Step Z3. Optionally, add a catalyst or a further reagent; where Steps Z1-Z3 may be performed in any order; to obtain a nanotube-ML complex where the ML is a closed ring around the nanotube;

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, a number of precursor-MLs are added in Step Z2, and all or some of these are converted to MLs, in the form of closed rings.

The MLs added in Step Z2 may all be the same or different.

The complex obtained following Step Z3 may comprise only MLs (e.g. closed rings), or may obtain on each nanotube one or more precursor-MLs (e.g. Ushapes) and one or more MLs (e.g. closed rings).

The presence of precursor-MLs (e.g. Ushapes) in the final complex may be attractive in cases where a high conductivity of the final composite is desired; the presence of MLs (e.g. closed rings) may be attractive where a practically irreversible mechanical bonding is desired.

Process for making CMUs and composite materials.

General process.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, a composite material is produced by the following steps:

Step 1a. Provide a SE1 ;

Step 1b. Provide a precursor-ML;

Step 1c. Optionally, provide a catalyst; Step 1d. Provide a SE2; to generate a SE1-ML-SE2 structure.

Steps 1a, 1b, 1c, and 1d may be performed in any order.

Example 0 and Figure 71 exemplify different variations of the general process, where the individual steps are performed in different order.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, SE1 is a nanotube, the precursor-ML comprises at least one ligand moiety with affinity for the nanotube and comprising two reactive groups that can react to allow ring-closing of the llshape around the nanotube, thereby forming the ML, and the SE2 is a polymer that may optionally be capable of reacting with a functional group of the ML, thereby covalently linking the SE2 to the ML.

SE2 may be a small molecule (e.g. a monomer, capable of reacting with other monomers to form a polymer) or may be a larger molecule (e.g. a polymer). Thus, in the Step 1d the SE2 that is provided may be a monomer which upon the polymerization reaction with other monomers becomes a polymer. Therefore, over time the SE2 may change from being a monomer to being a polymer.

In a similar way, the SE1 provided in the Step 1a may be initially provided in the form of a building block which then upon reaction with other building blocks ends up being a larger structure (e.g. a nanotube, graphene, polymer or mineral). Therefore, over time the SE1 may change from being a smaller chemical structure (a building block) to being a larger chemical structure (an extended chemical structure like e.g. a nanotube).

In a preferred embodiment SE2 is a polymer that is covalently linked to the precursor-ML in the first reaction of the process, as indicated by the following steps:

Step 2a. Provide a precursor-ML;

Step 2b. Provide a polymer and react polymer with precursor-ML to form a covalent bond between polymer and precursor-ML;

Step 2c. Provide a SE1 and allow precursor-ML to associate with SE1;

Step 2d. Provide a catalyst that is capable of mediating reaction of two functional groups of the precursor-ML, thereby forming the ML, mechanically bound to SE1 ; to generate a SE1-ML-polymer structure.

Figure 71 describes the production of composite materials comprising nanotubes (as SE1) and polymer (as SE2). These sequences of events and the general approach of producing composite materials apply, however, to all kinds of SE1 and SE2, and therefore generally describe the production of polymer-, ceramics- and metal composites, and any other kind of composite materials. For non-polymer composites, the applicable SE2 can simply replace “polymer” in the various schemes of Figure 71. Moreover, the 8 different sequences of events, depicted in Figure 71 , may be combined in any way.

Sequence 1 of Figure 71 describes the initial binding of precursor-ML (in the figure: a llshape) to a SE1 (in the figure: a nanotube), followed by formation of the SE1-ML complex, and finally addition of SE2 (in the figure: a polymer) and reaction between SE2 and ML to form the final product, SE1-ML-SE2. Thus, in a preferred embodiment of the invention, the following steps are performed:

Step 3a. Provide a precursor-ML;

Step 3b. Provide a SE1 , to form a SE1-precursor ML complex;

Step 3c. The precursor-ML is turned into a ML, mechanically bound to the SE1 , optionally by the addition of catalyst and/or reagent(s);

Step 3d. Provide a SE2 and covalently or non-covalently link it to the ML, optionally by the addition of catalyst and/or reagent(s); to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure.

Sequence 2 of Figure 71 describes the initial formation of a poly-precursor-ML (in the figure: poly-Ushape) by reaction of multiple precursor-MLs with one SE2 (in the figure: polymer), followed by addition of SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) and ring-closing around SE1 , to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure. Accordingly, this sequence of events can be described by the following process steps:

Step 4a. Provide a precursor-ML;

Step 4b. Provide a SE2, and attach one or more precursor-ML to SE2;

Step 4c. Provide a SE1 , and allow complexation to form a SE1-precursor-ML-SE2 complex;

Step 4d. Convert the precursor-ML to a ML, mechanically bound to SE1; to form a SE1-ML-SE2 complex.

Sequence 3A of Figure 71 describes the initial mixing of precursor-ML (in the figure: Ushape) and a portion of SE2 (in the figure: monomer), to generate the structure precursor- ML-portion of SE2 (in the figure: Ushape-monomer structure), and then SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) is added, precursor-ML-portion of SE2 is turned into ML-portion of SE2 structure, and finally the portions of SE2 are reacted to form SE2, and thereby generating a SE1-ML- SE2 structure. In this context, “the portion of SE2” is itself a SE2, as well as the full-size SE2 that is produced upon reaction of multiple “portions of SE2”. Accordingly, the following steps are performed:

Step 5a. Provide a precursor-ML and a portion of SE2, and associate or react the two components to form a precursor-ML-portion of SE2 structure;

Step 5b. Provide a SE1 and allow SE1-precursor-ML complex formation;

Step 5c. Turn the precursor-ML into a ML, to form a SE1-ML-portion of SE2 structure; Step 5d. Allow reaction of the portions of SE2 with each other; to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure.

Sequence 3B of Figure 71 describes the initial mixing of precursor-ML (in the figure: llshape) and a portion of SE2 (in the figure: monomer), to generate the structure precursor- ML-portion of SE2 (in the figure: Ushape-monomer structure), and then SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) is added, to form the complex SE1-precursor-ML-portion of SE2, then the portions of SE2 are reacted to form the complex SE1-precursor-ML-SE2, and finally the precursor-ML is turned into ML, thereby generating the SE1-ML-SE2 structure. In this context, “the portion of SE2” is itself a SE2, as well as the full-size SE2 that is produced upon reaction of multiple “portions of SE2”. Accordingly, the following steps are involved:

Step 6a. Provide a precursor-ML and a portion of SE2, and associate or react the two components to form a precursor-ML-portion of SE2 structure;

Step 6b. Provide a SE1 and allow SE1-precursor-ML-portion of SE2 complex formation;

Step 6c. Allow reaction between portions of SE2, attached to precursor-MLs, to form the SE1-precursor-ML-SE2 structure;

Step 6d. Convert the precursor-ML into a ML; to form a SE1-ML-SE2 complex.

Sequence 3C of Figure 71 describes the initial mixing of precursor-ML (in the figure: Ushape) and a portion of SE2 (in the figure: monomer), to generate the structure precursor- ML-portion of SE2 (in the figure: Ushape-monomer structure), and then SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) is added, followed by complexation, conversion of precursor-ML into ML (in the figure: ring closing) and SE2 formation (in the figure: polymerization), thereby generating the SE1-ML-SE2 structure. In this context, “the portion of SE2” is itself a SE2, as well as the full- size SE2 that is produced upon reaction of multiple “portions of SE2”. Accordingly, the following steps are performed:

Step 7a. Provide a precursor-ML and a portion of SE2, and associate or react the two components to form a precursor-ML-portion of SE2 structure;

Step 7b. Provide a SE1 and allow SE1-precursor-ML-portion of SE2 complex formation;

Step 7c. Allow conversion of the precursor-ML to a ML and formation of a SE2 from portions of SE2; to form a SE1-ML-SE2 complex.

Sequence 4A of Figure 71 describes how precursor-MLs (in the figure: Ushapes) carrying a polymerization terminator moiety (PT) is first complexed to a SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) and then the precursor ML is converted to a ML (in the figure: closed ring) mechanically bound to the SE1 , then portions of SE2 (in the figure: monomers) are added, and following the association of the portions of SE2 (in the figure: the polymerization of the monomers to form the polymer), the SE2 is attached to the ML through the PT, by way of the last reaction of the polymerization terminating on the polymerization terminator, to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure. In this context, “the portion of SE2” is itself a SE2, as well as the full-size SE2 that is produced upon reaction of multiple “portions of SE2”. Accordingly, Sequence 4A can be summarized by the following steps:

Step 8a. A SE1 , a precursor-ML carrying a polymerization terminator (PT), and optionally a catalyst capable of mediating the conversion of precursor-ML into ML, and a monomer is provided, leading to formation of the SE1-ML complex, where the ML carries a polymerization terminator moiety (PT).

Step 8b. Optionally, a catalyst is provided;

Step 8c. Polymerization proceeds to form a polymer in solution;

Step 8d. The growing polymer eventually terminates its polymerization on the polymerization terminator, thereby forming a SE1-ML-SE2 structure in which one ML is attached to one polymer.

Sequence 4B of Figure 71 describes how precursor-MLs (in the figure: Ushapes) carrying a reactive group (PT) is first complexed to a SE1 (in the figure: nanotube) and then the precursor ML is converted to a ML (in the figure: closed ring) mechanically bound to the SE1 , and portions of SE2 (in the figure: monomers) are added, and following the association of the portions of SE2 (in the figure: the polymerization of the monomers to form the polymer, which in this case carries a reactive group capable of reaction with PT), then the SE2 is attached to the ML, through a reaction between PT and the one reactive group of the polymer, to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure. In this context, “the portion of SE2” is itself a SE2, as well as the full-size SE2 that is produced upon reaction of multiple “portions of SE2”. Accordingly, Sequence 4A can be summarized by the following steps:

Step 9a. A SE1 , a precursor-ML carrying a reactive group (PT), and optionally a catalyst capable of mediating the conversion of precursor-ML into ML, and monomers are provided, leading to formation of the SE1-ML complex, where the ML carries a reactive group (PT).

Step 9b. Optionally, a catalyst is provided;

Step 9c. Polymerization proceeds to form a polymer in solution, where the polymer carries one reactive group capable of reacting with the other reactive group (PT);

Step 9d. Optionally, a catalyst and/or reagent(s) are provided;

Step 9e. The reactive group of the polymer is brought to react with the reactive group (PT) of the ML; to form a SE1-ML-SE2 structure.

In some instances, it is desirable to first form the SE1-ML complex, e.g. in order to disperse the SE1 more efficiently, and then dissociate the SE1-ML complex to obtain SE1 in its “free” form (not complexed to ML), as this may allow the efficient dispersion of SE1 without the ML complexed. As an example, it might increase the electrical conductivity or heat conductivity of a composite material comprising SE1-ML complexes if the ML is dissociated from the SE1. Thus, in a preferred embodiment the following steps are performed in order to obtain well-dispersed, non-ML-complexed SE1 in a composite: Step 10a. Provide a SE1 ;

Step 10b. Provide a precursor-ML;

Step 10c. Provide a catalyst and/or conditions allowing the precursor-ML to become a ML, complexed to the SE1;

Step 10d. Provide a SE2; to generate a composite material comprising a SE1-ML-SE2 structure;

Step 10e. Dissociate the SE1-ML complex into a SE1 and a ML; to obtain a composite material comprising ML, SE2, and non-ML-complexed SE1.

In a variation of the scheme immediately above, SE1 is a carbon nanotube, the precursor- ML is a UShape carrying two reactive groups, capable of reacting with each other and thereby turn the Ushape into a closed ring around the carbon nanotube (whereby the precursor-ML becomes a ML). Thus, in a preferred embodiment of the invention, the following steps are performed:

Step 11a. Provide a carbon nanotube;

Step 11b. Provide a Ushape carrying two reactive groups, capable of reacting with each other to turn the Ushape into a closed ring structure, wrapped around the carbon nanotube, where the two reactive groups may both be double bonds, and where part of the Ushape (and hence part of the closed ring structure) comprises a cleavable moiety, such as a polypeptide;

Step 11c. Provide a catalyst, e.g. Grubb’s second generation catalyst, under conditions allowing the catalyst to mediate the transformation of Ushape into closed ring around the carbon nanotube, thereby generating carbon nanotube-closed ring complexes;

Step 11d. Provide a polymer, e.g. nylon or other polyamide, polypropylene, polyethylene (HDPE or LDPE), PVC, polyurethane, polycarbonate, or polystyrene, and mix, to obtain a mixture of well-dispersed carbon nanotube-closed ring complexes in a matrix of polymer;

Step 11e. Add a cleaving agent capable of cleaving the closed ring, to open the closed ring, e.g. if the cleavable moiety of the Ushape is a polypeptide, then a protease is added capable of cleaving the polypeptide; and allow the cleaving agent to cleave the cleavable moiety, to obtain non-ML-complexed carbon nanotube in a matrix of polymer.

Depending on the efficiency with which the rings are removed from the carbon nanotube, the composite resulting from Step 11e may be more or less electrically conductive or heat conductive. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In this invention, industrially relevant nanotube composite materials and the processes required for their preparation are described. In the description section, all the processes necessary for the preparation of nanotube composite materials are detailed.

As an example, for the preparation of a polystyrene (PS) composite reinforced with covalently- attached single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) perfectly dispersed and anchored to the polymer matrix, the following steps may be followed:

• Steps A.1.1 to A.1.5 + A.2 for the preparation of a SWNT-ML, where the ML carries a functional group able to react with a polystyrene molecule carrying another functional group.

• Steps B.1 , A.2 and A.3 for reaction of the chosen PS and the prepared SWNT-ML.

Alternatively, the PS may be attached to the SWNTs at the same time of formation of the SWNT-ML, where the ML carries a functional group able to react with a styrene monomer. In that case, the next steps will be followed:

• Steps A.1.1 to A.1.6 for the mixing of the styrene monomers, the SWNTs and precursor-MLs (and, alternatively, any other molecules that might be necessary)

• Step A.2 for the polymerization of styrene, formation of the SWNT-ML species and reaction between SNWT-ML and reacting styrene. In this case, the SWNT-ML forming reaction will be same or similar to that of the polymerization of the polystyrene molecules.

DESCRIPTION

The approaches have been divided into steps, that describe the key processes contained in this patent. One step or a combination of steps leads to a product. The steps describe general processes that can be performed one or several times during an approach. In many cases - as it will be detailed- most of the steps are interchangeable, meaning that they can be performed in a different order. This will be further explained in the steps overview.

Interchangeable steps: Steps A.1.5 and A.2 can be performed in any preferred order. Detailed steps:

Step A.1.1. Provide an SE

An SE may be a nanotube, such as a carbon nanotube. An SE may be a polymeric material. An SE may be a [**fill this**]

An SE may be provided in solid form, in melt form, in liquid form. An SE may as well be provided in a dispersed/de-entangled form. The dispersion/de-entanglement process separates an individual SE from a group of two, three or several SEs. In some instances, the separation requires braking up the non-covalent forces that make the SEs interact with each other. Several strategies can be followed to disperse SEs:

• Chemically-promoted separation: Use of solvents, covalent functionalization of the SE surface, non-covalent functionalization of the SE surface, use of surface-active agents

• Physical methods:

- Mechanical methods:

With grinding media (ball milling, paint shaker, ball collision-mill, bead mill/sand mill)

Without grinding media (cone-mill, high shear batch disperser, thin-film spin mixer, rotor-mill)

- Cavitation methods

Bath sonicator

Probe sonicator

Turbulent flow methods:

High pressure jet-mill (water or air)

• A combination of the above strategies

An SE may be a short carbon nanotube. The process of shortening or cutting carbon nanotubes consists on decreasing the length of the largest nanotube dimension. The process may be carried out by treating the nanotubes with acids or combinations of acids, by heating them in an oxidating atmosphere such as air atmosphere or by mechanically processing them (e.g., in a ball mill or sonication).

An SE may be an ultrashort carbon nanotube. An ultrashort carbon nanotube is a 20-100 nm segment of a single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs).

An SE may be provided in a frozen state.

Step A.1.2. Provide one precursor-ML or ML, two precursor-MLs or MLs having different chemical structure, three precursor-MLs or MLs having different chemical structure or several precursor-MLs or MLs having different chemical structure.

Step A.1.3. Optionally, provide a solvent such as aromatic compounds (e.g., toluene or benzene), alcohols (e.g., methanol, isopropanol), esters and ethers (e.g., diethyl ether), ketones (e.g., acetone or butanone), amines and amides (e.g., 2-amino-2-methylpropanol, dimethylformamide), nitrated and halogenated hydrocarbons (e.g., tetrachloroethane, chloroform or dichloromethane), acids (e.g., formic acid or nitric acid), nitriles (e.g., acetonitrile) sulfoxides (e.g., dimethylsulfoxide) or water.

Step A.1.4. Optionally, provide a catalyst such as ruthenium-based catalysts (e.g., 1 st , 2 nd or 3 rd generation Grubbs catalyst), group 4 metals titanium, zirconium or hafnium-based catalysts (e.g., TiC and AI(C2Hs)2CI, or TiCk with AI^Hs ), acids (e.g., p-toluenesulfonic acid), bases (e.g., a tertiary amine such as triethylamine), a phase-transfer catalyst (e.g., a quaternary ammonium and sulfonium salt), copper catalysts (e.g., CuBr+bipyridine mixture or Cul+DIPEA mixture) or tin catalysts (e.g., Sn(Oct)2), enzymes, [**fill this**]

Step A.1.5. Optionally, provide any other molecule

In some cases, a molecule or a combination of molecules may be employed to prevent SE reaggregation. Thus, another molecule may be a nonionic surfactant (e.g., Triton X, Triton X- 100, Pluronic, Pluronic F-127, Igepal, aniline trimer (AT) or Brij), an ionic surfactant (e.g., sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS), sodium dodecylbenzenesulphonate (SDBS), sodium cholate (SC), sodium deoxycholate (SDC), sodium taurodeoxycholate (TDC), dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB) or cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB)), a polymer (e.g., polystyrene, aromatic polyimides, polyfluorene copolymers (e.g., PFO-BPy)), cellulose derivatives such as regenerated cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose or hydroxyethyl cellulose, lignin, Gum Arabic, DNA, lipids (e.g., rhamnolipids) or polypeptides.

In other cases, the molecules described above may be used to increase the efficiency of SE individualization. Different molecules also include Na + -montmorillonite, alkali metals (i.e., lithium or sodium), superacids (i.e., chlorosulphonic acid, anhydrous p-toluenesulfonic acid (pToS), methanesulfonic acid (MSA) or their mixtures with a small amount of fuming sulfuric acid) or solvents (e.g., N-methyl-pyrrolidone).

In other cases, the molecules may be employed to increase the thermal conductivity of the final product (i.e., for its use in EMI shielding applications), e.g., hybrid reduced-graphene- oxide/FesCU nanoparticles.

In other cases, the molecules may be employed to hydrolyse selected bonds in the final products such as ozone,

Step A.1.6. Provide a SE2. An SE2 may be a monomer or a polymer; cement or other cementitious substance; fly ash, slag cement, silica fume, nanosilica, natural pozzolans, calcium-sulfoaluminate or calcium aluminate cements, metal particles or other type of molecule, supramolecular structure, or particle.

Step A.2. Provide energy. In this step, energy is provided in order to induce a mechanical reaction or to modify certain characteristics in the mixtures, e.g., density or homogenization. Energy may be provided in one or several forms, consecutively or simultaneously. As an example, a SE1 may be reacted with a ML and a second SE (SE2) by first providing heat to the mixture and second mechanical energy or viceversa. Energy may be provided in the form:

-Mechanical energy: Under certain conditions, the application of mechanical energy may induce a mechanochemical processes. A mechanochemical process may be performed by:

Mortar grinding. Pressing and twisting a pestle against a mortar. Conditions to take into account:

Size of the mortar and pestle: Larger or smaller mortars can be employed. In a preferred embodiment, where low density SEs are employed, and therefore large reaction volumes are employed, larger mortars are preferred. This may be the case when single-walled nanotubes are employed as SE. In another preferred embodiment, small reaction quantities are employed and therefore smaller mortars are preferred.

Mortar and pestle material: Materials such as agate, porcelain, aluminium oxide, wood or may be chosen. In one embodiment, a mortar with very fine grain structure such as agate is preferred due to the use of oil-like reactives that stick to the mortar walls. In these cases, the grinded product can be cleaned out with ease.

Reaction times: The processes may be performed in short times such as 5 s or long times such as 6 h. In some cases, the precursor-MLs may decompose under mechanical treatment, therefore shorter reaction times are preferred. In other cases, the reaction rates are very low (e.g., the reaction rate for the SE1-ML formation) and longer times will be preferred.

Temperature: The processes may be performed in low temperatures such as -20 °C using a liquid-nitrogen cooled mortar or at high temperatures such as 80 °C by placing the mortar in a heat source. In a preferred embodiment, a liquid-nitrogen cooled mortar is employed in order to avoid side-reactions in the starting materials. This may be the case when using graphene oxide nanosheets as SEs, since they can undergo thermal reduction in the grinding process. In another preferred embodiment, the mortar is placed in a heat source in order to favour the melting of a reagent. This may be the case of reaction mixtures where a polymer, e.g. PMMA is employed as SE.

Balls in vessel/ball mill/shaker mill

Type of the mill:

Standar ball mills or tumbling mills: hollow cylindrical chamber that is fixed to an axis. Upon operation, it rotates by its axis on a set speed and the balls occupying its chamber space collide with the materials placed inside.

Vibration mills: A tank-like type of mill containing material and milling media (e.g., balls, cylpebs or rods), either wet or dry. The milling chamber describes a three dimensional motion that involves four factors: the speed of the vibration, the horizontal amplitude, the vertical amplitude and the phase angle.

Planetary mills: The reactors describe a planet-like movement. Two centrifugal fields enhances the forces acting on the balls in relation to the conventional ball mills.

Mixer mills: The reactor containing the milling balls and sample is swung energetically back and forth several thousand times a minute. The swinging is combined with lateral movements of the end of the reactor.

- Attritors (stirred ball mills): They consist on a cylindrical grinding chamber with a drive shaft having multiple impellers sticking out from the rotating shafts. The rotating shaft puts the grinding media, sample and optionally solvent into a stirring motion.

Specially designed mills: For some special cases, specially design mills may be preferred.

Ina preferred embodiment, a planetary mill is employed to produce a small quantity of highly individualized single-walled carbon nanotubes by incorporating pyrene-based mechanical ligands in their structure. In another preferred embodiment, a large tumbler mill is employed to produce 1 ton polypropylene reinforced with SWNT-ML. Reactor size: A large reactor may be preferred in order to produce several tons of final material. A small reactor may be preferred when working with small samples in order to avoid excessive empty space inside the reactor. In a preferred embodiment, 1.5 g single-walled carbon nanotubes, 630 mg pyrene precursor-ML, 61 mg Grubbs 2 nd generation catalyst and five 15 mm stainless steel balls are introduced in a 45 mL stainless steel planetary mill reactor to produce SE1-ML. In another embodiment, 1270.7 ton polypropylene, 1.27 ton single-walled carbon nanotubes, 0.5 ton precursor-ML, 0.05 ton 2 nd generation Grubbs catalyst and 80 mm stainless steel grinding balls are mixed in a 782 cubic metre horizontal ball mill to produce SE1-ML.

Reactor material: Such as stainless or hardened steel, zirconium oxide, tungsten carbide, sintered corundum, agate or teflon.

In some processes, the use of stainless steel reactors may be avoided due to crosscontamination with iron. In other cases, where corrosive substances must be employed (e.g., formic acid) tungsten carbide or zirconium oxide may be preferred due to their chemical resistance.

The reactor material can also modify the energy input given to the milling system. Denser and harder materials (e.g., tungsten carbide followed by steel) will provide high energy input to the system. Therefore, reactions that require higher activation energies to take place may be performed in heavyweight-milling materials.

In a preferred embodiment, a zirconium oxide is employed in the preparation of a LIHMWPE hip prosthesis reinforced with lassoed single-walled carbon nanotubes, where the lassoed single-walled carbon nanotubes are prepared by Suzuki reaction. In another embodiment, a stainless steel ball mill is employed in the production of cements reinforced with SE1-ML - where SE1 is a single-walled carbon nanotube and ML a mechanical ligand carrying terminal acid groups- mechanically covalently to the cement structure.

Relationship inner reactor volume/sample volume: This is an important factor to consider. In reactions performed in the absence of solvent, a homogeneous mixture is not immediately obtained. If the empty volume in the reactor is too low (i.e., a low reactor volume/sample volume relationship), the balls will not be able to move everywhere and the reaction and homogenization will be uncomplete. In the opposite case, if the reactor volume/sample volume relationship is too high, longer times will be needed to homogenize the reaction mixture. In a preferred embodiment, a 10% of the reactor volume is filled with the reacting material. In another embodiment, a 75% of the reactor volume is filled with the reacting material. Thus, depending on the context, the volume of material versus volume of the reactor can be 1 % to 99%.

Ball to powder weight ratio: Typical values such as 5:1 , 10:1 or 15:1 , 20:1 , 30:1 , 100:1. In a preferred embodiment, a SE1-ML is prepared by mixing 1.5 g SWNTs, 630 mg precursor-ML, 61 mg Grubbs 2 nd generation catalyst and five 15 mm diameter stainless steel balls, meaning a 27:1 ball to powder weight ratio.

Reaction times: Some organic transformations may require large reaction times to fully complete but at the same time, longer reaction times may lead to product decomposition. Longer reaction times also lead to the breakage/shortening of the SEs. The choice of the reaction time will thus be a compromise: for some applications, longer SEs may be preferred and reaction times will be lowered.

In a preferred embodiment, longer times such as 12 h are employed to produce SE1-ML where SE1 are ultra short carbon nanotubes. In another embodiment, short times such as 15 min are employed to produce ring-closing metathesis of a precursor-ML carrying terminal double bonds around a SE1 such as a multiwall carbon nanotube.

Rotation speed: higher rotational speeds may lead to an increase in the reaction medium temperature. In some cases, the increase may enhance the formation of the final desired products. Also, higher and more effective speeds may allow the reduction of the reaction times. In different cases, higher temperature may lead to the formation of undesired byproducts.

If the process is happening inside a tumbler ball mill the mill speed must be different to the critical speed, the speed at which the grinding media will centrifuge against the wall of the cylinder (i.e., at this speed no milling will occur). The operating speed may be a percentage of the critical speed.

In some cases, such as the formation of mechanical ligands around single-wall carbon nanotubes, the rotation speeds are low such as 400 rpm in order to reduce damage of the carbon nanotube walls. In other cases, such as the Sonogashira reaction between a SE1-ML where the ML carries a terminal alkyne group and a polystyrene chain carrying a terminal bromide, high speeds such as 1800 rpm are preferred.

Balls material, number and size: Similarly to what happens with the reactor material, the balls material must be chosen in order to avoid undesired side-reactions. In some cases, the balls material can be used to catalyse the reaction taking place inside the ball mill (e.g., In a polymer attaching reaction where a polymer containing a terminal azide is covalently linked to a ML containing a triple bond, Cu milling balls may be employed as catalysts in the click reaction).

The balls number and size may be empirically determined for each reaction. The larger the size of the balls the fewer impacts per revolution, but at the same time, the larger the size of the balls the more energetic will be each impact. Smaller balls will produce more impacts but less energetic. In a preferred embodiment, such as the preparation of SE-ML where SE is a single-walled carbon nanotube and the ML is a pyrene-based macrocycle formed by ringclosing metathesis, more than four 10 mm diameter stainless steel balls are required for the reaction to be quantitative in a 20 mL stainless steel reactor.

Atmosphere: The choice of an inert (e.g., evacuated, argon, nitrogen or helium) or air atmosphere is also an important parameter to consider. Reactions catalysed by metallic complexes carried out in air may lead to partial deactivation of the catalyst.

The presence of oxygen in the reaction mixture may enhance the formation of undesired defects in the walls of carbon nanotubes. In some cases, such as the preparation of SE-MLs where SE is a single-walled carbon nanotube, an inert atmosphere (e.g., argon or nitrogen atmospheres) is preferred. In other cases, the incorporation of acid functional groups in the walls of the carbon nanotubes due to the employment of air atmospheres is preferred in order to enhance the solubility of the final products in water, increasing their compatibility with a cementitious matrix. Also, some atmospheres may be used to produce certain reactivities, e.g., a combination of nitrogen and ammonia may lead to the production of nitrides and hydrogen atmosphere to the production of hydrides.

Humidity (liquid-assisted grinding) during processing: In some cases, the reactivity may be enhanced or controlled towards the obtention of a certain product by the addition of a small amount of liquid such as in a Suzuki-Miyaura reaction between an aryl chloride and a boronic acid to form a mechanical ligand. In other cases, the reactivity may be enhanced by removing humidity such as in the performance of moisture-sensitive reactions (e.g., a SWNT shortening reaction where the oxidation of the SWNTs wants to be minimized). Thus, depending on the context, the liquid content in the reaction vessel is preferentially greater than [**...**]

Temperature: During a ball milling, a large among of the energy generated dissipates as heat. For this reason, the temperature generated inside the milling reactor is an important factor to take into account when designing the synthetic protocol. The temperature plays a key role in the evolution of the chemical reactions and processes happening inside a ball mill. In some cases, an increase in temperature is necessary to produce the reactions, e.g., the ring-closing metathesis reaction. In some other cases, the temperature may lead to side reactions or degradation of heat-sensitive formed products.

Temperature inside the milling reactor may be controlled by the integration of milling pauses in the milling cycle. Other options include: cryogenic milling that may be performed by cooling down the beaker (e.g., using liquid nitrogen) previous to the milling process or by constant cooling during the milling process (e.g., using liquid nitrogen), water cooling of the vessels, air cooling, use of heating tapes or the use of double-walled milling beakers equipped with an inlet and an outlet for a circulating liquid.

In a preferred embodiment, a cryogenic milling is employed in order to prepare SE1-ML/SE2 where SE2 is PMMA and SE1-ML a single-walled carbon nanotube carrying a pyrene-based mechanical ligand. The cryogenic conditions avoid molecular weight reduction of the PMMA. In another embodiment, room temperature is employed to perform a ring-closing metathesis of a precursor-ML around a SE1 .

Reactive extrusion: The mechanical energy is provided in the form of high shear forces generated inside the extruder barrel. For this reason, an extruder may be used to perform multi-functions in a sequential manner, e.g., an extruder may first work as a reactor for a polymerization reaction, a devolatilizer to remove residual monomer(s), a compounder to incorporate additives (e.g., SE-MLs), and a shaping device to convert the product to a desired form.

The conditions for reactive extrusion can be varied in many different ways to obtain the desired results.

Size of extruder: The length/diameter ratio is an important fact to consider when choosing the extruder size. Typical ratios go from 20:1 to 30:1 or 36:1 , the last two being considered as industrial standard. Some extruders even exceed 40:1 L/D for special purposes like double venting, compounding, or high-speed processing.

For some applications it may be an advantage to use extruders with higher L/D ratio such as 35:1 , e.g., in order to extrude thermoplastics or in order to perform slow reactions. In other cases, it may be desired that a smaller L/D ratio such as 12:1 is employed, e.g., for economic reasons or for the extrusion of rubber.

The volume of the extruder is an important factor as well. For some cases, such as the preparation of master batches with high concentrations of SE-MLs (e.g., the preparation of a 5 wt% SE-ML-polypropylene composite), extruders with small base capacities may be preferred such as the Xplore MC 15 twin screw microcompounder having 15 mL base capacities. For other cases, such as the large-scale preparations of composites or SE1-ML- SE2 having lower SE1 -ML content, continuous extrusion in larger extruders may be employed such as the Brabender KETSE 20/40 EC.

Ultimately, the size of an extruder is determined based on the diameter of the screw used in the system. Typical screws range from to 25 to 300 mm. In some cases, such as the large scale production of polystyrene grafted to lassoed single-walled carbon nanotubes (0.1% SWNT content) from a 5 wt% master batch, screws with larger diameters such as 200 mm are preferred.

Number of screws: Typical extruders comprise one or two screws, but extruders with more than two screws such as quad screw extruders and planetary roller extruders are also available. Twin screw extruders can be corotating intermeshing, counter rotating intermeshing, counter rotating non intermeshing and coaxial. In some cases, such as the profile extrusion of a PVC tube containing a 0.1 % SE1-ML (PVC being the SE2), where the SE1-ML are mixed with the PVC (SE2) during the extrusion process, a counterrotating intermeshing extruder may be preferred. In other cases, such as the recycling of HDPE (SE2) reinforced with SE1-MLs, a single screw extruder may be preferred.

Compression ratio of the screw: The compression ratio is the ratio between two depths, the feed channel depth and the metering channel depth (compression ratio = feed channel depth I metering channel depth). This ratio is typically between 1.5:1 and 4.5:1. Some polymers run better on screws with a 2.5:1 compression ratio, while other materials process better on screws with a 4:1 compression ratio. Often so-called general purpose (GP) screws with a ratio of about 2.5-3: 1 are employed which are suitable for a wider range of materials. Zerocompression screws and vented screws are also an option. In a preferred embodiment, a vented screw is employed to react a precursor-ML containing two double bonds around a SE1 (e.g., a single-walled carbon nanotube) to favour the release of ethylene molecules generated during the ring-closing metathesis reaction.

In another preferred embodiment, polystyrene is mixed with SE-MLs (e.g., lassoed singlewalled carbon nanotubes) in an extruder with the compression ratio of the screw being 3.3:1. In a different embodiment, low density polypropylene (SE2) containing terminal amines is reacted with a SE-ML (lassoed single-walled carbon nanotube containing a terminal acid chloride) in an extruder with compression ratio of the screw being 3.7:1.

RPM inside the extruder: Speeds from 1 rpm to 1500 rpm can be found. An increase of the rotation speed has both an influence on the residence time and on the viscous dissipation in an extruder. In a preferred embodiment, acrylonitrile is graft polymerized onto SE1-MLs (being SE a single-walled carbon nanotube and the MLs a mechanical ligand containing a terminal alkene) in a twin screw extruder operating at 400 rpm. In another embodiment, 500 rpm extrusion is employed to improve the dispersion of SE-MLs (e.g., lassoed multi-walled carbon nanotubes) in polylactic acid polymer. In another embodiment, a HDPE composite containing lassoed SWNTs is prepared by mixing the lassoed SWNTs and the HDPE in a microcompounder operating at 190 °C, screw speed at 100 rpm.

Residence time: The residence time can be controlled in some systems due to the possibility of recirculating the material (e.g., in a compounder having a bypass valve) or is determined by the depending on the L/D, type of extruder, screw design, and the operation format. The extruder residence times usually range between 5 s and 10 min. In some cases, shorter residence times are preferred in order to avoid decomposition of a polymer. As an example, a PVC composite containing a 1 % lassoed single-walled carbon nanotubes is prepared in a microcompounder using a resindence time of 5 min.

Temperature at each part of the extruder: Key factor to consider is the temperature of operation. This temperature can be homogeneous or adjusted along the screw length. In a preferred embodiment, high-density polyethylene is extruded in a single-screw extruder operating at different temperatures along its length: zone 1 , 170 °C: zone 2: 195 °C and zone 3: 220 °C. In another embodiment, a mixture of polypropylene (SE2) and lassoed singlewalled carbon nanotubes (1 wt%) is extruded through a twin-screw extruder at constant 180 °C.

Sequential additions/number of feeders: Screw extruders are usually starve-fed with one or several accurate feeders. Major components are usually fed to the main hopper, and minor ones, if not preblended with the major ones, can be fed through a top or a side port. Nonreacting additives (stabilizers, colorants, etc.) may need to be incorporated downstream prior to discharge of the final product, because of incompatibility with the reaction or devolatilization step. In a preferred embodiment, a mixture of polyol + diisocyanate + an aromatic diamine is fed through a first feeder to a two screw extruder. This mixture is reacted to give polyurethane through a polyaddition reaction. Lassoed SWNTs are added through a secondary feeder and incorporated to the polyurethane matrix,

Feed rate: The feed rate play an important role in extrusion processes. To achieve the highest throughput rates, feeding equipment must deliver an accurate and consistent feed to the extruder. To do this, the feed system must be designed according to the materials and throughput rates being fed. If too much material falls into the extruder, it will cause a momentary increase in load on the motor, manifesting itself as an increase in torque on the extruder control screen. These torque spikes cannot exceed 100% of the extruder’s available torque or else safety interlocks will shut down the extruder to avoid an overload condition. As a result, the normal operating torque of the process must be kept lower to create room for these potential spikes.

In a preferred embodiment, ABS (SE2), a precursor-ML and SWNTs (SE1) are fed to a SLA 3D printer operating at 180 °C and 8 rpm at a rate lower than 100 mm/s (e.g., 60 mm/s).

Sliding: The mechanical energy is provided by sliding a surface on top of another or by sliding two surfaces in between which the reaction mixture is located. This produces i.e., a chemical reaction that occurs at the sliding interface of two solid materials. A key factor to take into account is the external force or load applied perpendicularly to the sliding direction. Also, the velocity at which the surfaces move with respect to one another.

Turning/spinning: The mechanical energy is supplied as elastic deformation of the material and the chemical behaviour varies producing e.g., a chemical reaction. Compression or extension: The mechanical energy is provided in the form of compression or extension, e.g., using a carver press.

Key variables to consider are the pressure at which the mixture is compressed or extended or the heat that is applied while compressing.

Temperature: In a certain embodiment, the temperature of the compression is maintained under 300 °C in order to avoid decomposition of the ML such as in the case of pyrene-based mechanical ligands formed by ring-closing metathesis. In other cases, higher temperature than 170 °C is preferred in order to favour higher fluidity of the SE2 and therefore improved mixing with the SE1-ML such as the case of the hot pressing of PMMA. Thus, depending on the context, the temperature at which the mixtures are compressed is preferentially higher than [**add**].

Thus, depending on the contex, the temperature at which the mixtures are compressed is preferentially lower than [**add**].

Pressure: In some cases, high pressure such as 1000 MPa is preferred in order to produce a chemical reaction between the two precursor-ML ends (such as a Diels Alder) and form a mechanical ligand around a SE1. In other cases, low pressure such as 5 MPa is preferred in order to avoid undesired reactions in the final SE1-ML-SE2 composite while dog-bone preparation.

Shear mixing: The mechanical energy is provided in the form of shear.

Temperature: In a certain embodiment, high temperatures such as 210 °C are employed in order to mix SE1-ML with a polymer SE2 (e.g., polyvinyl fluoride) in a melt form. In another embodiment, the sample is cooled down (e.g., to -5 °C) in order to avoid reaggregation of the SE1 after mechanical ligand cleavage in the presence of a SE2.

Speed (RPM): In some cases, high shear mixing (e.g., 10000 rpm) enhances the dispersion of the SE1 or SE1-ML in the SE2, such as the dispersion of SWNT containing mechanical ligands in a polyurethane precursor. In other cases, low shear mixing such as 500 rpm is preferred in order to disperse a SE1-ML being a single-walled carbon nanotube in a polymer matrix (SE2) in order to avoid particle reduction in the final composite.

Time: In a preferred embodiment, shear mixing for larger times such as 12 h enhances the dispersion of the SE1-ML in the SE2, being the SE2 a polymeric material such as PMMA. In another preferred embodiment, a SE1-ML is shear mixed with a SE2 for shorter times such as 30 min in order to avoid degradation of the SE1-ML.

Solvent: In a preferred embodiment, toluene is employed to disperse SWNT-ML complexes and produce SWNT-ML/poly(methyl methacrylate) after addition of poly(methyl methacrylate) to the SWNT-ML dispersion and shear mixing. In another embodiment, acetone is employed to disperse SWNT-ML complexes and produce SWNT-ML/polystyrene after addition of polystyrene to the SWNT-ML dispersion and shear mixing.

Energy in the form of heat: The chemical reactions and processes are initiated by the absorption of heat.

In a certain embodiment, methyl methacrylate is polymerized at 100 °C in the presence of a SE1-ML in order to give a SE1-ML-SE2. Energy in the form of light: The chemical reactions and processes are initiated by the absorption of energy in the form of light.

In a certain embodiment, light is employed to cleave the mechanical ligand from the SE1 in a SE1-ML/SE2 composite. The mechanical ligand contains a light-cleavable group comprising a o-nitrobenzyl group and a triglycine that is cleaved upon irradiation with 365 nm light.

In another embodiment, a precursor-ML is reacted with a SE1 to give a SE1-ML by cycloaddition of the two terminal double bonds contained in the precursor-ML initiated by 300 nm light.

Energy in the form of microwaves

In a preferred embodiment, a mixture of SWNTs and precursor-ML containing a

Energy in the form of electricity

Energy in the form of cavvitation

Step A.3. Optionally, perform a purification process

For some cases, such as the use of Ushape-nanotube complexes in the reinforcement of polymers aimed for the medical industry (e.g., PMMA reinforced composites employed as prosthetic joints) or food industry, a complete removal of the byproducts and remaining catalysts is required. This might be done following several techniques, such as:

Purification processes able to remove all impurities:

Filtration

Precipitation

Dialysis

Centrifugation

Specific purification processes:

Metallic catalyst removal:

Extraction: Addition of a coordinating ligand (i.e., imidazole, cysteine or 2- mercaptonicotinic acid) that acts as a metal scavenger and extraction into aqueous solution (used for e.g., the removal of Grubbs catalyst).

- Adsorption: Adsorption of the metallic by-product onto activated charcoal (used for e.g., the removal of palladium-based catalysts).

U-shape removal:

Crystallization

Step B.1. Provide an SE-ML obtained following steps A.1.1 to A.2 or A.1.1 to A.3

Step B.2. Provide a monomer or a polymer; cement or other cementitious substance; or other type of molecule, supramolecular structure, or particle

Products of the processing:

Structural entity 1 (SE1): A structural entity SE is a chemical or physical entity. A structural entity is typically used to modify the characteristics of the composite material, e.g. by modifying the strength or flexibility of the composite material. A structural entity may also provide alternative characteristics such as conductivity, heat absorption, energy storage, etc.

Composite material: is used interchangeably with composite. A combination of two or more materials such as a polymer combined with an additive; a metal with an additive, or a ceramic with an additive. Typically, the material in excess is called the matrix, whereas the material present in small amount is called the additive or filler. Example composites are polystyrene combined with a small amount of carbon fibers, and metal combined with a small amount of carbon nanotube.

Mechanical ligand and ML is used interchangeably and shall mean a chemical entity that is capable of forming a mechanical bond with a structural entity, or is forming a mechanical bond with a structural entity. An example mechanical ligand is a closed ring of atoms wrapped around a structural entity.

Precursor mechanical ligand (precursor-ML) shall mean a chemical entity that can be turned into a mechanical ligand (ML) by formation of a covalent bond between two different parts of said precursor-ML.

Non precursor mechanical ligand shall mean a chemical entity that was once a precursor mechanical ligand. A precursor mechanical ligand is transformed into a non precursor mechanical ligand through processing.

Structural entity 1 -precursor mechanical ligand (SE1-precursor ML): is used to refer a complex where a first structural entity -structural entity 1- is physically bound to a precursor mechanical ligand.

Structural entity 1-mechanical ligand (SE1-ML): is used to refer a complex where a first structural entity -structural entity 1- is mechanically bound to a mechanical ligand.

Structural entity 1-mechanical ligand / structural entity 2 (SE1-ML/SE2): is used to refer a composite material where a structural entity 1 , mechanically bound to a mechanical ligand is physically bound to a second structural entity (structural entity 2). SE1 can be identical to SE2; SE1 can be of the same type as SE2, e.g. can both be nanotubes; SE1 can be of a different type than SE2, e.g. SE1 may be a nanotube and SE2 may be a plastic polymer.

Structural entity 1-mechanical ligand-structural entity 2 (SE1-ML-SE2): is used to refer a composite material where a structural entity 1 , mechanically bound to a mechanical ligand is covalently or mechanically bound to a second structural entity (structural entity 2).

Structural entity 1+precursor mechanical ligand+structural entity 2 (SE1+precursor ML+SE2): is used to refer a composite material containing a structural entity 1 , a precursor mechanical ligand and a second structural entity (structural entity 2) not forming chemical bonds with each other.

This type of composite material may be obtained from the cleavage of the mechanical bond between the structural entity 1 and a mechanical ligand that will therefore be transformed into a precursor mechanical ligand.

Structural entity 1+non precursor mechanical ligand+structural entity 2 (SE1+non precursor ML+SE2): is used to refer a composite material containing a structural entity 1 , a non precursor mechanical ligand and a second structural entity (structural entity 2) not forming chemical bonds with each other. Ball milling: A mechanical process that produces physical and chemical transformations in materials. Ball milling is performed by subjecting a mixture to high-energy collision of balls contained within a mill that is shaken, rotated, submitted to vibration or swung.

Production of composite fibers.

In a preferred embodiment, a polymer composite fiber is made, consisting only of any polymer and a carbon nanotube, where the stiffness and strength may be varied depending on the amount of carbon nanotube and the orientation of the nanotubes within the polymer.

The orientation of the nanotubes may range from fully random to fully aligned in the longitudinal direction of the fiber, see Figure 83.

The fiber may have any cross-sectional size and shape (round, rectangular, oval, triangular etc).

In a preferred way for aligning the nanotubes in the fiber, the shortest cross-sectional distance is lower than the length of the nanotube.

A fiber may consist of several layers of polymer nanotube material with different amounts, shapes, and orientation of nanotubes in each layer, see Figure 84.

The fiber may be manufactured by fiber spinning, extrusion, pultrusion, or any other method that may produce continuous fibers of any length.

The fiber may be assembled with other fibers in yarns, bundles, weaves, fabrics, etc.

Composites may be made from consolidating the fiber assembly by heat and/or vacuum etc. The composite assembly may be made with a combination of nanotube fiber and polymer fiber. Fibers may be continuous, short, or granulated.

Composites may be made by impregnating the fiber assembly with a viscous resin of different or same polymer type as the polymer used for the fiber. The resin may also consist of nanotubes having a different orientation and concentration than the nanotube fiber, see Figure 85.

In a preferred embodiment, both the resin and the fiber are made from the same polymer, which enables an easily recyclable composite, see Figure 85. Furthermore, even more advanced composite and polymer fiber hybrid combinations can be made as shown in Figure 86.

In a preferred embodiment, a component may be designed with the optimal stiffness and strength by using fibers of different nanotube concentration and orientation, see Figure 87. As an example, this enables the use of only one composite material and eliminates the need for using both glass and carbon composites in a rotor blade for wind turbines, Figure 88.

In a preferred embodiment, the polymer fibers may be made larger than typical glass fiber (17-24 pm) and carbon fiber (5-8 pm), which speeds up the impregnation of a fiber assembly with resin due to a lower surface area that the resin must wet and pass through. Glass and carbon composites experience lower fatigue strength as the diameter of the fiber increases, which may not be the case for a nanotube polymer fiber. ITEMS

DEFINITIONS.

MINT is short for Molecular Interlocked NanoTubes. It is used interchangeably with “coated nanotubes” or “ML-nanotube complexes”. MINTs are nanotubes complexed with one or more covalently closed ring(s).

Tuballs are SWNTs purchased from OCSiAI.

Dog bone is a small piece of material in the form of a dog bone and convenient for tensile strength and Young Modulus measurements in the INSTRON instrument.

U-shape is used interchangeably with llshape, and is a precursor-ML, capable of forming a ML around a nanotube upon fusion of two reactive groups carried by the U-shape, to form a covalently closed ring around the Nanotube.

EXAMPLES

Example 0. Different sequences of events leading to composite material. As depicted in Figures 71-77, there are several principally different sequences of events leading to the formation of a nanotube-polymer composite material, comprising polymer-coated nanotubes:

Sequence 1 (ring closing, then attach polymer): The nanotube and the precursor-ML (also termed the Ushape) is first mixed, and the Ushape is closed around the nanotube to form a ring around it. Then the polymer is added and attached to the rings. The final result is a nanotube with rings around it, where the rings are attached to polymer. This is the nanotube- polymer composite material, comprising polymer-coated nanotubes.

Sequence 2 (poly-Ushape formation, then ring-closing): The Ushapes are attached to a preformed polymer, to make poly-Ushape. Then nanotubes are added to the polyUshape, and the Ushapes are closed around the nanotube to form rings. This is the nanotube- polymer composite material, comprising polymer-coated nanotubes.

Sequence 3 (monomer-Ushape formation, then ring-closing and polymerization): The Ushape and the monomeric unit are first attached to each other, to form a Ushape-monomer molecule. Nanotubes are added and the Ushapes bind to the nanotube. The final polymerization of the monomer units into polymer and the closing of the Ushapes to form rings around the nanotubes, can be performed in different ways, i.e. (A) first the Ushapes are closed around the nanotube to form rings, and then the monomer units polymerize while immobilized on the nanotube, or (B) first the monomer units polymerize while immobilized on the nanotube, and then the Ushapes are closed around the nanotube to form rings, or (C) polymerization of the monomer units and ring-closing of the Ushapes happens simultaneously.

Sequence 4 (ring closing, then attach reacting polymer): Similar to Sequence 1 , the nanotube and the precursor-ML is first mixed, and the Ushape is closed around the nanotube to form a ring around it. The ring carries a polymerization termination functionality. The growing polymer is added and it attaches to the rings through the polymerization termination functionalities. The final result is a nanotube with rings around it, where the rings are each attached to different polymer chains. This is the nanotube-polymer composite material, comprising polymer-coated nanotubes.

In these examples, the preparation of several composites samples using 3D printing is described. Depending on the type of polymer and their properties, the 3D printing technique should be selected for optimum results.

Example FF1. Preparation of single walled carbon nanotube-mechanical ligand complexes for their use in thermoplastic polymer reinforcement.

In this example, the preparation of single walled carbon nanotube-mechanical ligand complexes (SWNT-ML) is described. The mechanical ligand contains pyrene units as recognition motifs for SWNT.

The obtained SWNT-ML complexes were used in subsequent examples to make polypropylene-SWNT-ML composites using twin-screw microcompounding.

Step 1. 1 g Tuball CNTs (from OCSiAl; diameters ranging from 1.3-2.3 nm) were dispersed in tetrachloroethane (TCE, 1 L, 1 g/L) by sonication in a bath sonicator (10 min).

Step 2. To this dispersion, the Pyrene U-Shape of Example AA1 . (0.55 g, 0.65 mmol) was added.

Variations to the above protocol:

Example FF2. Preparing a “Master Batch” of 5wt% Pyrene SWNT-ML - Polypropylene composite.

In this and subsequent examples, two different shear mixers were used.

For small quantities, an Xplore MC 15 twin screw microcompounder was used to mix the composites. It has a base capacity of 15 mL. and a maximum torque value is 9000 N-m. It is equipped with co-rotating and counter-rotating screws and the chamber can be closed to control mixing time, in addition to temperature (up to 450 °C) and mixing speed. However, the raw materials can only be mixed in batches of about 10-15g at a time. For larger quantities (>400g), a larger, Brabender KETSE 20/40 EC co-rotating twin screw extruder can be used. It has an integrated drive with a power of 11 kW and reaches speed up to max. 1200 rpm. Output is 0.5 - 9 kg/h. This allows for continuous mixing of large amount of composite at once. However, the chamber cannot be closed, leaving the only controllable parameters as temperature and screw rotational speed.

In some of the examples below, a master batch’ with a high concentration of CNT is first made, and then diluted with neat polymer to make composites with lower concentrations of CNT.

The size of the Xplore MC 15 twin screw microcompounder chamber limits the amount of composite made at one time to 15mL. As such, the polypropylene and coated tubes can only be mixed in quantities of about 10g-15g.

The polypropylene (PP) used in these composites were Moplen HP400R from Lyondellbasell. Step 1 : In each of 12 containers, 11.167g of PP and 0.833g of “Pyrene SWNT-ML of Example FF1” were weighed out and collected.

Step 2: The microcompounder was prepared for mixing at 210 °C with a twin screw rotational speed of 100rpm. One of the 12g batches prepared in step 1 was introduced into the chamber, and left to mix for 5 min.

Step 3. The chamber was opened and the PP- Pyrene SWNT-ML composite was extruded from the nozzle and collected.

Step 4. Steps 2-3 were repeated for the remaining 11 containers.

Step 5. The extruded material of the 12 containers was combined and cut up into pellets using a pelletizer for subsequent processing. The resulting composite is hereby referred to as “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2”

The mechanical characteristics were tested by **Tensile Mechanical Testing**. The data are shown in **Example FF5 for compression molded samples and Example FF20 for injection molded samples.**

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 1 , different thermoplastic polymers, or SWNT-MLs using different Ushape chemistries can be used in place of polypropylene and the Pyrene SWNT-ML to make different polymer-SWNT-ML composites.

• Different amounts of SWNT-ML can be used to make composites of different CNT content.

• In step 2, different temperatures and twins screw rotational speeds, and mixing times can be employed which may improve the dispersion of the MINTs in the polymer matrix. Additionally, the temperature used will always be dependent on the choice of the polymer matrix.

Example FF3. Diluting a “Master Batch” to make Lower Concentration Composites with the Brabender KETSE 20/40 EC

For quantities of material greater than 400g, the Brabender KETSE 20/40 EC can be used to mix the material much faster and continuously, instead of separating the mixture into smaller batches. We will describe how to dilute the 5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2 into 600g of 1wt%, 0.1wt%, and 0.01wt% Pyrene SWNT-ML-PP composites using the Brabender KETSE 20/40 EC.

Step 1 : 120 g of the “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2” and 480 g of PP were thoroughly mixed in a bag to evenly spread out the “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2” pellets among the neat PP polymer.

Step 2: The extruder was prepared for mixing at 180 °C with a twin screw rotational speed of 50rpm. Lower temperature was used compared to Example FF2 since the concentration of CNTs was lower and overall viscosity of the mixture was also lower. Neat PP was passed through the extruder. As the polymer was poured, careful attention was paid to the torque as to not overload the system (80Nm torque limit). The polymer was poured into the extruder at a rate that kept the torque at around 50Nm.

Step 3: The neat PP was extruded from the extruder. Careful attention was made to make sure it came out clear to make sure that there were no contaminates in the extruder. Once it was certain that the polymer was coming out clear, the extruder was allowed to empty as much as it could. Once it stopped extruding, Step 4 was performed Step 4. The “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2’7 PP mixture prepared in step 1 was slowly added to the extruder at a rate that kept the torque around 50Nm. The residual neat PP is allowed to exit the extruder. Once there was a noticeable color change to black of the filament, the filament was placed on a cooling conveyor belt where it cooled down and then entered the pelletizer to cut into pellets..

Step 5. Once the batch was finished, the end of the filament was cut from the extruder and allowed to cool and pelletize. The pelletized composite was collected and saved. The resulting composite was named “1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3.”

Step 6: Neat polymer was then passed through the extruder until the color of the filament was completely clear again.

Comment: If the next sample is the same polymer and filler, but at a higher concentration of filler, the extruded material does not have to be completely clear, only light enough to notice the change in color when the new composite mixture is added and mixed. However, if the next composite to be mixed is of lower concentration or a different filler, it must be completely clear before mixing the composite.

Step 7: Steps 1-6 were repeated using 12.0g of the “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2” and 588 g of neat PP to create a 0.1 wt% composite hereby referred to as “0.1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3.”

Step 8: Steps 1-6 were repeated using 1.20g of the “5% Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF2 and 598.8 g of neat PP to create a 0.01wt% composite hereby referred to as “0.01% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3.”

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 2, different temperatures and twins screw rotational speeds can be employed to help improve the dispersion of the MINTs in the polymer matrix.

• In step 5, the extruded composite can be mixed for a second time to improve dispersion and concentration uniformity. Since the chamber cannot be closed, the mixing time can only be controlled by slowing the screw rotational speed. But a second mixing will increase the total mixing time.

The mechanical characteristics were tested using the tensile mechanical analysis procedure in Example FF4 and The data are shown in Example FF5.

Example FF4. Sample Preparation of Dog bones for Tensile mechanical testing analysis

This example describes the procedure for the preparation of dogbone-shaped tensile testing specimen for the “Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composites of Example FF3.”

A mold of five dogbones was prepared from a 3 mm thick sheet of aluminum, shown in Fig. 42. The shape of the dogbone was taken as the Type V dogbone as described by ASTM D638. For sample preparation, Atlas™ Series Heated Platens with the 4000 Series High Stability Temperature Controller were used together with the Atlas™ Manual 15Ton (15T) Hydraulic Press, all from Specac, Ltd.

Step 1 . On top of a 3mm thick 125 mm x 125 mm square of stainless steel, a 125 mm x 125 mm sheet of Kapton film was placed. The mold (Fig. 42) was placed on top of the Kapton film.

Step 2. The mold was filled with pellets of “1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3.” Another 125 mm x 125 mm of Kapton film was placed on top, and then another 125mm x 125mm stainless steel plate.

Step 3. The heated platens were preheated to 180 °C. Then the steel-Kapton-mold-Kapton- steel sandwich from step 2 was placed between the two platens. Then allowed to sit for about 5 minutes without adding pressure.

Step 4. Pressure between the platens was increased pressure to 10ton by 2.5ton increments with the pressure released between each increment to allow the mold to “breathe.” (2.5tons, release, 5tons, release, 7.5 tons, release, 10tons, release. Then to 10tons again).

Step 5. Temperature was held at 180 °C at 10tons for 10 minutes.

Step 6. Temperature controller was set to 60 °C. Pressure was kept at 10 tons as sample cooled. Once at 60 °C, pressure was released.

Step 7. Samples were removed from mold. These samples were known as 1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite Dogbones of Example FF4.

Step 8. Steps 1-7 were repeated with both 0.1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3 and 0.01% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite of Example FF3 to make 0.1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite Dogbones of Example FF4 and 0.01 % Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML Composite Dogbones of Example FF4, respectively. Additionally, dogbones were also prepared for neat polypropylene using the same process as a control, to make neat polypropylene dogbones of Example FF4.

Example FF5. Tensile Mechanical Testing of Pyrene SWNT-ML-Polypropylene Composite dogbones.

For Tensile tests, an Instron 34-TM tensile testing machine was used with a 10kN load cell.

Step. 1. The mechanical wedge tensile testing grips of the Instron 34-TM tensile testing machine were separated at a distance of 25 mm. A dogbone of 1% Diluted Pyrene SWNT- ML Composite Dogbones of Example FF4 was place between the grips and the grips were tightened. A tensile strain gauge extensometer with a 10 mm gauge length was then placed around the narrow region of the dogbone.

Step 2. The dogbone was strained at a rate of 1 mm/min until the sample broke.

Step 3. The Young’s Modulus of the sample was calculated based on ASTM D638 from the slope of the stress strain curve, listed in the table below and plotted in Fig. 43

Young’s modulus data as measured from tensile testing experiments for Pyrene SWNT-ML-PP dogbones prepared in Example FF4. Also shows relative increase in modulus for each composite compared to the neat polymer.

Example FF 6. Preparation of SWNT-ML by mechanical grinding for thermoplastic polymer composite using twin screw microcompounding.

This example employs manual grinding, to produce SWNT-ML complexes, which are then used to make high-density polyethylene (HDPE)-SWNT-ML composites. We use a twin screw microcompounder to produce carbon nanotube thermoplastic nanocomposite.

Step 1 : 1.0g Tuball CNTs (OCSiAl S.a.r.l.) were mixed with 0.420 mg pyrene Ushape , 0.48|jmol Ushape/mg CNT) and 203.8 mg of Grubb’s catalyst (2 mol Ushape 1 1 mol Grubb’s Catalyst) and placed in a mortar.

Step 2: CNTs, Ushape, and Grubbs catalyst were grinded with mortar and pestle for 30min, creating coated SWNT-ML complexes.

Step 3: The coated CNTs were placed in about ~300mL of chloroform and vacuum filtrated using a 0.2 pm pore filter

Step 4: The filter cake (approximately 1.4 g) was placed in another 300mL of chloroform and bath sonicated 10 min, and then filtered again via vacuum filtration

Step 5: Step 4 was repeated 2 more times

Step 6: Step 4 was repeated once using 300mL of diethyl ether instead of chloroform

Step 7: The filter cake was dried for 24hr at 150 °C. The resulting product was called

“Mechano synthesized pyrene SWNT-ML of Example FF6.’’

Step 8:

The final product of Step 7 was analyzed by TGA. From the TGA the degree of functionalization (amount of Ushape relative to amount of SWNT) was determined to be 27.5%.

Variations to the above protocol:

• The pyrene Ushape added in Step 1 may be replaced by any of the Ushapes mentioned in this patent application.

Example FF7. Preparing 1% Concentration high density polyethylene composites with the Xplore MC 15 twin screw microcompounder.

We will describe how to make 1wt% Pyrene SWNT-ML-high density polyethylene (HDPE) using the Mechano synthesized pyrene SWNT-ML of Example FF6. Additionally, we will make 1 % pyrene SWNT-ML composites using solution processed pyrene SWNT-ML as made via the procedure in Example FF1 for comparison.

Step 1 : In each of 5 containers, 14.79g of HDPE (Sigma-Aldrich, melt index 12 g/10 min, 90 °C/2.16kg) and 0.206g of Mechano synthesized pyrene SWNT-ML of Example FF6 were weighed out and collected.

Step 2: The microcompounder was prepared for mixing at 190 °C with a twin screw rotational speed of 100rpm. The 12g batch prepared in step 1 was introduced into the chamber, and left to mix for 5 min. Step 3. The chamber was opened and the HDPE- Pyrene SWNT-ML composite was extruded from the nozzle and collected.

Step 4. Steps 2-3 were repeated for the remaining 4 containers.

Step 5. The extruded material of the 5 containers was combined and cut up into pellets using a pelletizer for subsequent processing. The resulting composite is hereby referred to as 1% Mechano Pyrene SWNT-ML HDPE Composite of Example FF7.

Step 6. After cleaning, Steps 1-5 were repeated with 14.8g HDPE and 0.1974g of solution synthesized pyrene SWNT-ML that were made following the procedure outlined in Example FF1. These SWNT-ML had a functionalization of 24%. The resulting composite is hereby referred to as 1% Mechano Pyrene SWNT-ML HDPE Composite of Example FF7

Step 7. After cleaning, Steps 1-5 were also repeated with 15g HDPE for a neat control sample.

This produces neat extruded HDPE of Example FF7.

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 1 , different thermoplastic polymers, or SWNT-MLs using different Ushape chemistries can be used in place of polypropylene and the Pyrene SWNT-ML to make different polymer-SWNT-ML composites.

• Different amounts of SWNT-ML can be used to make composites of different CNT content.

• In step 2, different temperatures and twins screw rotational speeds, and mixing times can be employed which may improve the dispersion of the MINTs in the polymer matrix. Additionally, the temperature used will always be dependent on the choice of the polymer matrix.

Example FF8. Sample Preparation of HDPE composite Dogbones for Tensile mechanical testing analysis

The procedure outlined in Example FF4 is followed to prepared dogbone tensile testing samples for 1) 1% Mechano Pyrene SWNT-ML HDPE Composite of Example FF7, 1 % Mechano Pyrene SWNT-ML HDPE Composite of Example FF7, and neat extruded HDPE of Example FF7. Only changes are to Step 3 and Step 5, where the temperature used is 150 °C. Step 2. The procedure outlined in Example FF5 was followed for mechanical property testing of the dogbones. The resulting measurements are shown in Fig. 44 and listed in the table below.

Young’s modulus data as measured from tensile testing experiments for Pyrene SWNT-ML-PP dogbones prepared in Example FF4. Also shows relative increase in modulus for each composite compared to the neat polymer.

Example FF9. Preparing low density polyethylene composites by melt mixing

Low density polyethylene (LDPE, Sigma Aldrich, melt index 25 g/10 min (190°C/2.16kg))- SWNT-ML composites made using previously described methods are described. Step 1 . The procedure outlined in Example FF2 was adapted with the following changes:

1) SWNT-ML were prepared using mechanosynthesized SWNT-ML as described in Example FF6. They had a functionalization of 23.5%

2) The desired concentration of the master batch was 2.5wt% SWNT-ML. 7 batches of 13g per batch were prepared with 12.58g LDPE and 424mg SWNT-ML.

3) Each batch was mixed at 190 °C at 125 rpm for 5 min

This produced “2.5% Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9.”

Step 2. The procedure outlined in Example FF2 was adapted to the following changes.

Using batches of 11g, consisting of 0.44g 2.5% Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9 and 10.56g neat LDPE were mixed together at 190 °C at 125 rpm for 5 min. 4 batches in total were mixed. The collected composite was called “0.1wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9”

Step 3. Step 2 was repeated with batches of 2.2g of 2.5% Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9 and 8.80g of neat LDPE. 4 batches in total were mixed. The collected composite was called “0.5wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9”

Step 4. Step 2 was repeated with batches of 4.4g of 2.5% Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9 and 6.60g of neat LDPE. 4 batches in total were mixed. The collected composite was called “1.0wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9”

Step 5. After cleaning, The procedure outlined in Example FF2 was also also repeated with 4 batches of 11g/batch LDPE for a neat control sample. This produces neat extruded LDPE of Example FF9.

Step 6. The procedure outlined in Example FF4 is followed to prepared dogbone tensile testing samples for 1) 2.5% Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9, 0.1wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9, 0.5wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT- ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9, 1.0wt% Diluted Pyrene SWNT-ML LDPE Composite of Example FF9, and neat extruded LDPE of Example FF9. Only changes are to Step 3 and Step 5, where the temperature used is 150 °C.

Step 7. The procedure outlined in Example FF5 was followed for mechanical property testing of the dogbones. The resulting measurements are shown in Fig. 45 and listed in the table below.

Example FF10. Preparation of single walled nanotube-ML-PVA complexes.

The preparation of water-dispersible polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) -SWNT-ML complexes comprising 50 wt% CNT are described in this example. Step 1 . Example EE9, B was followed using “Acid llshape of Example EE3” to make “Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML complexes of Example FF10”,

Step 2: In a glass vial 164 mg of PVA (Sigma-Aldrich, M w 89,000-98,000, 99+% hydrolyzed) was mixed with 336 mg “Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML complexes of Example FF10”, 88.7 mg 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine (DMAP, Sigma-Aldrich), 171 mg 1 -hydroxybenzotriazole hydrate (HOBT, Sigma-Aldrich) and 517mg N,N'-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) with 15mL of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).

Step 3. Vial was heated to 120 °C under magnetic stirring for 1 hr.

Step 4. Mixture was stirred overnight at 60 °C

Step 5. Bath sonicated for 2 hr

Step 6. The next day, sample was precipitated in an acetone bath under magnetic stirring.

Step 7. Precipitate was collected, filtered using vacuum filtration, and washed twice with about 300mL of acetone per wash.

Step 8. Washed precipitate was dried at 100 °C overnight. The resulting material is referred to as “50% Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML-PVA Composite of Example FF10.”

Step 9. For comparison, Steps 1-8 was performed in parallel using 250mg of as-purchased carbon nanotubes (Tuball, OCSiAl) instead of “Acid llshape of Example EE3” and 250mg of PVA. Same amounts of DMAP, HOBT, and DCC were used. Note, at steps 5-6, resulting precipitate was more gel like and more difficult to filter than the sample made with carboxylic acid SWNT-ML. The resulting material is referred to as “50% SWNT-PVA Composite of Example FF10.”

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 2, Different amounts of Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML can be used to make composites of different CNT content.

• In step 2, may be desirable to use smaller amounts or larger amounts of DCC, HOBT, and DMAP.

• Different amounts of heating and sonication times in steps 2-4 may be used to help improve tube dispersion.

• In step 2, more DMSO may be used to help facilitate tube dispersion as well.

Example FF11. Preparation of single walled carbon nanotube-mechanical ligand-PVA films from aqueous dispersions.

Step 1. 50mg of “50% Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML-PVA Composite of Example FF10” was mixed with 5mL of deionized water. The mixture was stirred overnight at 90 °C.

Step 2. Mixture was bath sonicated for 1 hr.

Step 3. Mixture was poured into a 3 cm diameter glass petri dish. Film was dried at 80 °C overnight. The resulting film is referred to as “50% Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML-PVA Film of Example FF11.”

Step 4. Steps 1-3 were repeated in parallel with 50% SWNT-PVA Composite of Example FF10 to make “50% SWNT-PVA Film of Example FF11.”

Step 5. The thickness of each of the films is measured using a Dektak Profilometer and the sheet resistance was measured using the Van der Pauw method on a four-probe station. The results are listed in Table. FF11.1. Given the quality of the films shown in Fig. 46 it is no surprise the

50% Carboxylic Acid SWNT-ML-PVA film of Example FF11 is much thicker and much more conductive than the 50% SWNT-PVA film.

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 1 , different amounts of water or PVA composite can be used to try different CNT concentrations.

• In steps 1-2 different mixing times, temperature of mixing, and sonication times can be used to help improve dispersion

• In step 4, different size substrates can be used to cast the film onto. Additionally, other casting methods, such as spin coating, can also be explored.

Each of the four films can be seen in Fig. 46. Three of the four films visually homogeneous, black, and opaque. Only 50% SWNT-PVA Film of Example FF11 had a poor, non-uniform film quality, leading to its poor conductivity.

Example FF12. Protocol for SWNT-ML carbon nanotube - epoxy nanotube composite sample preparation using shear mixing.

In this example, we use a combination of shear mixing and compression molding to produce a high carbon nanotube content epoxy nanocomposite using mechanically interlocked carbon nanotubes (Ml NTs).

The experiment describes the making of a 1wt% carbon-nanotube epoxy composite, but concentration and chemical composition can be adjusted accordingly. In the example, the mechanical ligands (rings) of the sized CNT becomes covalently linked to the epoxy polymer.

Step 1 : 20.0g diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA, Sigma-Aldrich), monomer is heated in an oven to ~60 °C to reduce the monomer viscosity and the desired amount is weighed in a glass beaker. 392.67mg “Methylamine MINTs of Example EE10” were added to the glass beaker.

Step 2: The DGEBA-Mint mixture was placed under the IKA T 25 digital ULTRA-TURRAX with S 25 N - 18 G mixer and shear mixed at the maximum 10,000rpm for 3 hr.

Step 3: The rotation speed of the mixture was reduced to 100rpm for 5min to promote degassing.

Step 4: After the mixing, the DGEBA-MINT mixture was placed in a vacuum oven at 80C. A vacuum is pulled for 30 min to remove trapped gases as much as possible.

Step 5: The stoichiometric amount of hardener, Polypropylene glycol) bis(2-aminopropyl ether) (MW: 230 g/mol, Sigma-Aldrich, also known as Jeffamine D-230) is added to the DGEBA-MINT mixture (with about 5% excess). For Jeffamine-D230 in the system described in step 3, that was 7.09 g. This mixture was then mixed by hand for approximately 1 min to avoid introducing more bubbles.

Step 6: After mixing, the mixture was then brought to the hot press, which was heated to 80 °C. A 2 mm thick steel mold of a 70mm x 70mm rectangle was placed on top of a T eflon sheet and another steel plate. The uncured mixed resin was then poured in the mold in slight excess. Another Teflon sheet and steel plate was then placed on top.

Step 7: 5,000kg of Pressure was placed on the sample. This pressure was then released to help remove trapped gas. Repeat 3-4 more cycles of 5,000kg of pressure and release.

Step 8: After cycling, 10,000kg of pressure was applied on the sample. The sample was then cured at 80 °C for overnight.

Step 9: The sample was removed from press and mold. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was used to check the cure by monitoring epoxide peaks at 770 cm -1 and 914 cm -1 . If these peaks are still present, place sample back in hot press, add 10,000kg press, increase cure to 200 °C and check cure with FTIR every hour until fully cured. The resulting composite is from here referred to as the “1.0wt% Amino SWNT-ML-Epoxy Composite of

Example FF12.”

Step 10. Steps 1-9 were repeated twice, once without any fillers (no SWNT-MT) to produce a “neat Epoxy Composite of Example FF12” control sample, and again with 273.68mg of as- purchased carbon nanotubes (Tuball, OCSiAl) to make “1.0wt% SWNT -Epoxy Composite of Example FF12.”

Step 11 : The cured epoxy rectangles were then cut into dogbone shapes (see Fig. 42.) using a high-velocity waterjet cutter. These samples are measured on a tensile tester per Example FF5. The resulting tensile moduli are reported in Fig. 47 and the table below, showing an increase in modulus for the Amino SWNT-ML-Epoxy that is outside the standard deviation, and larger in magnitude than that of the SWNT-ML-Epoxy.

Young’s modulus data as measured from tensile testing experiments for Amino SWNT- ML-Epoxy dogbones prepared in Example FF12. Also shows relative increase in

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 1 . The chemistry of the mechanically interlocked ring around the CNTs can be modified to experiment with the effect of this functionalization on the dispersion and mechanical dispersion. Namely, amine derivatives of the ring can react with the epoxy backbone to covalently bond the Ml NTs to the epoxy matrix. However, the quantity of hardener needs to be reduced ensure stoichiometry.

• In step 1 , the chemistry of the epoxy can be modified to experiment with the effect different hardeners and epoxy backbones to see the effect on MINT dispersion and mechanical reinforcement

• In step 2, the speed and mixing time can be modified to improve dispersion.

• Before shear mixing, probe sonication can be used for a short amount of time to help break up large initial MINT agglomeration. However, as MINTs increase the viscosity of the mixture, sonication will become less effective.

• Before step 1 , the MINTs, which can start out as large agglomerated chunks, and be mechanically broken up to help reduce the initial size of the MINTs. Using a blade mixer I blender to start out with smaller mints could help.

• Different cure temperatures and times can be experimented in Step 9. Example FF13. Nanoindentation of PS-AMIDE-MINTs

In this example, we test the mechanical properties of PS-AMIDE-MINTs of Example EE15C using nanoindentation. See Figure 48.

Step 1 . PS-AMIDE-MINTs of Example EE15C was dried on a flat surface to create a smooth flat film of approximately 200 pm in thickness. This sample was glued to a magnetic disc

Step 2. Using a diamond Berkovich tip on a Bruker Hysitron TS 77 Select, 9 indents were performed on the surface of the composite in a 3 x 3 array. The maximum force was set to 10mN. The surface was indented at an indentation displacement rate of 0.1 s -1 until reaching the max force of 10mN where the maximum force was held for 30 sec. The force was then unloaded over the course of 2 seconds.

Step 3. The slope of the unloading curve was used to calculate the reduced elastic modulus and indentation hardness using the Oliver-Pharr model. The results are shown in Fig. 48 and listed in the table below.

Step 4. Steps 1- 3 were repeated with neat amine-terminated polystyrene (neat PS-NH2) (Mw 5000) as a control, prepared the same way as PS-AMIDE-MINTs of Example EE15C, except without any MINTs. We will refer to this sample as neat PS-NH2 of Example FF13.

Example FF14. AFM nanoindentation of PS-AMIDE-MINTs

In this example, we test the mechanical properties of PS-AMIDE-MINTs of Example EE15C using Atomic force microscopy (AFM) nanoindentation. The AFM used in this example was a JPK Nanowizard II AFM. See Figure 50.

Step 1 . Hemispherical cone shape tips (HSC60-250, Nano-tec, Inc.) with a nominal spring constant of 250N/m were calibrated using the Sader Method to measure a real cantilever stiffness of 128 N/m.

Step 2. The deflection sensitivity of the AFM tip was measured using a sapphire reference sample and measured to be 28.3 nmA/.

Step 3. A reference polystyrene sample (PS-Film, Bruker) with a measured modulus of 2.7 GPa was then indented at maximum applied force of 4V at 64 different points in an 8 x 8 array. 10 indentations were taken at every point for a total 640 force displacement curves.

Step 4. Step 3 was repeated for neat PS-NH2 of Example FF13

Step 5. Step 3 was repeated for PS-AMIDE- MINTs of Example EE15C. Except the applied force was increased to 1.5V.

Step 6. Using the Johnson-Kendall-Roberts Contact mechanical model, and the fact that the nominal modulus of the PS-reference sample was 2.7GPa, the tip radius was determined to be 609 nm Step 7. Using the Johnson-Kendall-Roberts Contact mechanical model and a tip radius of 609 nm, the reduced elastic modulus (E r ) was measured for each force-displacement curve for each sample. Fitted curves with R 2 values below 0.95 were removed from the average calculation. The data is presented in Fig. 49 and shown in the table below. The fact that the reference PS sample gives a value close to 2.7GPa tells us we can have good confidence in the other modulus measurements.

Step 13. Oven heated from 40 °C to 140 °C at a rate of 4.167 °C/hr over the course of 24 hr. Step 14. Samples placed in 80°C oven for 3 nights. The resulting composite was named “0.1%

Steps 1-15 were repeated with 25 mg of as-purchased carbon nanotubes (Tuball, OCSiAl) instead of Hand - Mechanosynthesized Thiol SWNT-ML of Example GG7-e1. The resulting composite was named “0.1% SWNT-Selfhealing Polyurethane Composite of

Example FF15.”

Step 16. Steps 1-15 were repeated with NO carbon nanotubes instead of Hand - Mechanosynthesized Thiol SWNT-ML of Example GG7-e1. The material was named “neat

• In steps 14, the temperature and time in oven can be adjusted (increase of decreased), as long as all the solvent has been removed.

In this example, the preparation of 1.0wt% Thiol SWNT-ML-self-healing isophorone based polyurethane using Hand - Mechanosynthesized Thiol SWNT-ML of Example GG7-e1. The procedure from Example FF15 was adjusted slightly to account for higher SWNT-ML content.

Example FF17. Preparation of self-healable Polyurethane-Thiol MINT composite dogbones for Tensile mechanical testing analysis.

Step 1. The procedure outlined in Example FF4 is followed to prepared dogbone tensile testing samples for neat Selfhealing Polyurethane Polymer of Example FF15, 0.1 % SWNT- Selfhealing Polyurethane Composite of Example FF15, 0.1% Thiol SWNT-ML-Selfhealing Polyurethane Composite of Example FF15, 1 .0% SWNT-Selfhealing Polyurethane Composite of Example FF16, and 1 .0% Thiol SWNT-ML-Selfhealing Polyurethane Composite of Example FF16. Only changes are to Step 3 and Step 5, where the temperature used is 50 °C.

Step 2. The procedure outlined in Example FF5 was followed for mechanical property testing of the dogbones. However, due to the soft nature of the materials, a 100N load cell was used instead of a 10kN load cell. Additionally, 250N pneumatic tensile testing grips were used to hold the sample. The grips were still separated by a distance of 25 mm, and no extensometer was used. Strain was measured by the change in displacement divided by the initial gauge length (25 mm). Additionally, the rate of displacement outlined in Step 2 of Exampple FF2 was changed to 100 mm/min. The resulting modulus and tensile strength measurements are shown in Fig. 51 and listed in the table below.

Young’s modulus and tensile strength data as measured from tensile testing experiments for Thiol SWNT-ML-self healing polyurethane (SHPLI) dogbones prepared in Example FF17. Also shows relative increase in modulus and tensile strength for each composite compared to the neat polymer. Step 3. After initial mechanical tests, samples were heated at 80 °C for an additional two weeks. Then, steps 1-2 were repeated. The resulting modulus and tensile strength measurements are shown in Fig. 52 and listed in the table below.

Example FF18. Preparing 0.1wt% SWNT-ML commercial thermoplastic polyurethane composites with the Xplore MC 15 twin screw microcompounder. We will describe how to make 0.1wt% Diamino-boc SWNT-ML-commercial thermoplastic polyurethane composites using the diamino-boc MINTs of Example GG7a. Additional 0.1wt% SWNT- commercial thermoplastic polyurethane composites will be compared as a control.

For the commercial thermoplastic polyurethane, Elastollan BCF 35A12P TSG from BASF was used.

Step 1 : In each of 2 containers, 11.9842g of Elastollan BCF 35A12P TSG (BASF) and 0.0158g of diamino-boc MINTs of Example GG7a (24% functionalization) were weighed out and collected.

Step 2: The microcompounder was prepared for mixing at 150 °C with a twin screw rotational speed of 100rpm. The 12g batch prepared in step 1 was introduced into the chamber, and left to mix for 5 min.

Step 3. The chamber was opened and the TPU- Diamino-boc SWNT-ML composite was extruded from the nozzle and collected.

Step 4. Steps 2-3 were repeated for the second containers.

Step 5. The extruded material of the 2 containers was combined. The resulting composite is hereby referred to as 0.1% Diamino-boc SWNT-ML-TPU Composite of Example FF18.

Step 6. After cleaning, Steps 1-5 were repeated with 2 containers of 11.988 g HDPE and 0.012g of as-purchased carbon nanotubes (Tuball, OCSiAl). The resulting composite is hereby referred to as 0.1% SWNT-TPU Composite of Example FF18.

Step 7. After cleaning, Steps 1-5 were also repeated with 2x12g Elastollan BCF 35A12P TSG for a neat control sample. This produces neat extruded TPU of Example FF18.

Variations to the above protocol:

• In step 1 , different thermoplastic polyurethane formulations, or SWNT-MLs using different Ushape chemistries can be used in place of Elastollan BCF 35A12P TSG and the Diamino-boc SWNT-ML to make different polymer- SWNT-ML composites.

• Different amounts of SWNT-ML can be used to make composites of different CNT content.

• In step 2, different temperatures and twins screw rotational speeds, and mixing times can be employed which may improve the dispersion of the MINTs in the polymer matrix. Additionally, the temperature used will always be dependent on the choice of the polymer matrix.

Variations to the above protocol:

• Other SWNT-ML composites using different polymer matrices, SWNT-ML formulations, and SWNT-ML concentrations can be used to injection mold samples, provided the polymer matrix is a thermoplastic. Example FF21. Preparation of Epoxy - Diamino SWNT-ML composites by attaching the U-shape” first before MINT formation

In this example, we will describe an alternative method to making epoxy-SWNT-ML composites to the method described in Example FF12. In this method the U-shape is attached to the epoxy resin monomer, and then the SWNTs are added and the ring is closed before adding the epoxy hardener. The following describes the procedure to make a 0.1wt% Diamino SWNT-ML composite using polypropylene glycol) bis(2-aminopropyl ether) with molecular weight 400 g/mol as a hardener.

Step 1. 15.0g diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA, D.E.R. 332, Sigma-Aldrich), monomer is heated in an oven to ~80 °C to reduce the monomer viscosity and the desired amount is weighed in a glass beaker.

Step 2. DGEBA was heated to 100 °C and placed under vacuum for 2 hr to remove any trace amount of water.

Step 3. 13 mg of “Diamino U-Shape of Example GG12a” was dissolved in about 5 mL chloroform and 5-10 drops of triethylamine. This mixture was then mixed with the DGEBA.

Step 4. The mixture was heated to 140 °C, and the solvent was removed under vacuum for 2 hr using a solvent trap.

Step 5. Mixture was placed under Argon and mixed at 140 °C overnight with magnetic stirrer.

Step 6. Next day, temperature reduced to 60 °C

Step 7. 24.28 mg of as-purchased carbon nanotubes (Tuball, OCSiAl) were added to the mixture: The ratio of Ushape to SWNTs was 0.495 pmol Ushape I mg SWNT.

Step 8. Mixture was shear mixed for 2 hr at 8000 rpm using an IKA T 25 digital ULTRA- TURRAX with S 25 N - 18 G mixer.

Step 9. Mixture was mixed with magnetic stirrer overnight at 80 °C

Step 10. Next day, mixture was heated to 140 °C under vacuum for 2 hr

Step 11. 5mg of Grubb’s catalyst (2 mol Ushape 1 1 mol Grubb’s Catalyst) was dissolved in ~5mL chloroform and added to the mixture.

Step 12. Mixture mixed at 80 °C with magnetic stirrer for 3 days.

Step 13. Mixture heated to 140 °C under vacuum for 2 hr.

Step 14. Mixture cooled to 60 °C

Step 15. 9.25 g of hardener, Polypropylene glycol) bis(2-aminopropyl ether) (MW: 400 g/mol, Sigma-Aldrich, also known as Jeffamine D-400) was added to the DGEBA-SWNT-ML mixture (1.05 mol Jeffamine D-400: 2 mol DGEBA) This mixture was then mixed by hand for approximately 1 min.

Step 16. Mixture was poured into a 70mm x 70mm square stainless steel mold of 2 mm thickness between two sheets of fiber reinforced Teflon and two 125mm x 125mm x 2mm stainless steel. The mold was placed in a hot press Atlas™ Series Heated Platens with the 4000 Series High Stability Temperature Controller with Atlas™ Manual 15Ton (15T) Hydraulic Press, from Specac, Ltd at 80 °C for 2 hr at 5 tons of pressure.

Step 17. Temperature of press was increased to 140 °C for 8 hr

Step 18. Temperature of press was increased to 200 °C for 8 hr, resulting in 0.1wt% Diamino SWNT-ML Ushape-First Epoxy-D400 Composite of Example FF21.

Step 19. The cured epoxy rectangles were then cut into dogbone shapes (see Fig. 42.) using a high-velocity waterjet cutter. These samples are measured on a tensile tester per Example FF5. The resulting tensile moduli are reported in the table below, showing slight improvement in tensile strength over the neat epoxy.

Step 20. A neat control sample was made by repeating steps 1-19, while skipping steps 3-13, producing neat Epoxy-D400 Composite of Example FF21.

Variations to the above protocol:

• Different epoxy monomers can be used in place of DGEBA in step 1 .

• The Diamino llshape added in step 3 could be replaced with any other llshape that can react with the epoxide groups in the DGEBA monomer.

• The amount of llshape in step 3 and amount of CNTs added in step 7 can be increase or decrease depending on the desired concentration. Additionally, the ratio of pmol Ushape/mg CNT can be adjusted to optimize properties.

• In step 8, the mixing speed and time can be increased or decreased

• In step 11 , the ratio of Grubb’s catalyst to llshape can also be adjusted

• In step 15, different epoxy crosslinkers can be used to see how different epoxy crosslinkers affect the composite.

• In steps 16-19, the curing steps can also be adjusted to see how different curing processes affect the composite properties.

Example FF22. Preparation of Epoxy-D400 - Diamino SWNT-ML composites by shear mixing method

In this example, we will describe an alternative method to making epoxy-SWNT-ML composites to the method described in Example FF12. In this method, diamino SWNT-ML “MINTs” are mixed at higher temperature to attempt to fully react the functional diamino groups to the epoxy monomer.

Step 1. Separately, diamino-boc MINTs of Example GG7a were heated to 225 C for 2 hr to remove the boc protection group. Removal of the boc group was verified using TGA in air, resulting in deprotected diamino SWNT-ML’s with functionalization of -20%. These deprotected diamino SWNT-ML are here by referred to as diamino MINTs of Example FF22.

Step 2. Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA, D.E.R. 332, Sigma-Aldrich), monomer is heated in an oven to -80 °C to reduce the monomer viscosity and 15.0g is weighed in a glass round bottom flask.

Step 4. 30.43 mg of “diamino MINTs of Example FF22” (20% functionalization) was placed in the dried DGEBA.

Step 5. Mixture was shear mixed for 2 hr at 8000 rpm using an IKA T 25 digital ULTRA- TURRAX with S 25 N - 18 G mixer.

Step 6. Mixture was then mixed at 140 °C overnight under argon with magnetic stirrer.

Step 7. The next day, mixture was placed under vacuum at 140 °C for 2 hr

Step 8. Mixture temperature reduced to 60 °C

Step 9. 9.25 g of hardener, Polypropylene glycol) bis(2-aminopropyl ether) (MW: 400 g/mol, Sigma-Aldrich, also known as Jeffamine D-400) was added to the DGEBA-SWNT-ML mixture (1.05 mol Jeffamine D-400: 2 mol DGEBA) This mixture was then mixed by hand for approximately 1 min.

Step 10. Mixture was poured into a 70mm x 70mm square stainless steel mold of 2 mm thickness between two sheets of fiber reinforced Teflon and two 125mm x 125mm x 2mm stainless steel. The mold was placed in a hot press Atlas™ Series Heated Platens with the 4000 Series High Stability Temperature Controller with Atlas™ Manual 15Ton (15T) Hydraulic Press, from Specac, Ltd at 80 °C for 2 hr at 5 tons of pressure.

Step 11. Temperature of press was increased to 140 °C for 8 hr

Step 12. Temperature of press was increased to 200 °C for 8 hr, resulting in 0.1wt% Diamino SWNT-ML Shear Mix Epoxy-D400 Composite of Example FF22.

The resulting tensile moduli are reported in the table below, showing slight improvement in tensile strength over the neat epoxy (Neat Epoxy-D400 of Example FF21).

Variations to the above protocol:

• Different epoxy monomers can be used in place of DGEBA in step 2.

• Diamino MINTs of Example FF22 added in step 4 could be replaced with any other SWNT-ML that can react with the epoxide groups in the DGEBA monomer. • The amount of SWNT-ML’s added in step 4 can be increase or decrease depending on the desired concentration.

• In steps 10-12, the curing steps can also be adjusted to see how different curing processes affect the composite properties.

Example GG1. Synthesis of mono- and di-alkylated pyrene:

This example describes the synthesis of pyrene derivatives, compounds (GG1c, GG1 b), which are used as recognition motifs towards SWNTs and have terminal alkene functionalities that can be used in derivatives structures to react closing around a SWNT.

The synthesis consists of three reaction steps, as depicted in (Figure 55). The synthesis is similar to the one described in Chem. Commun. 2015, 51 , 5421 , DOI: 10.1039/C4CC08970G.

Step 2: three vacuum-Ar cycles were done.

Step 3: Anhydrous Cyclohexane (32.9 ml, 1.66mL/mmol) was added.

Step 4: [lr(OMe)COD]2 (131 mg, 0.198 mmol, 0.01 equiv) was added.

Step 5: the mixture was refluxed (80 °C) for 16 h under argon.

Step 6: After the reaction had finished, the crude was filtered on silica-celite and washed with DCM.

Step 7: The solution was evaporated in vacuum.

Step 8: The brown solid was purified by washing with a little cold acetone and a white solid was obtained (8.45 g, 94 %). This product was called “2, 7-diBpinpyrene of Example GG1a” (Compound GG1a).

As an alternative, flash column chromatography with silica gel can be applied, using as eluents Hex/DCM to 6:4.

With cyclohexane, the reaction is slower but cleaner than THF. This alternative helps avoiding formation of the TriBpin-pyrene.

Example GG1b. Synthesis of 2,7-dihydroxipyrene (GG1b):

Step 1 : pure 2, 7-diBpinpyrene (2 g, 4.4 mmol, 1 equiv) and NaOH (1 g, 26.4 mmol, 6 equiv) were dissolved in a mixture solvents THF/H2O (10:1) (200 mL, 45.5 mL/mmol).

Step 2: H2O2 (2.7 mL, 30 w/w, 26.4 mmol, 6 equiv) was added dropwise to this solution.

Step 3: This mixture was stirred at room temperature for 4 h.

Step 4: When the reaction had finished, HCI (1 M, to pH acid) was added into the reaction.

Step 5: the mixture was stirred at room temperature for one hour.

Step 6: THF was removed under reduced pressure.

Step 7: A light brown solid was formed which was isolated by filtration Step 8: A brown solid was obtained with 86 % Yield. The brown solid was called “2,7- dihydroxipyrene of Example GG1b” (Compound GG1b).

In Step 7: The organic phase may be dried with anhydride MgSC .

In Step 8: the solvent may be evaporated in vacuum to obtain dark solid.

In Step 9: This solid may be re-dissolved in minimum volume of Et2O and the resulting product may be precipitated by addition of hexane (200 mL/mmol Bpin).

Example GG1c. Synthesis of monoalkylaed pyrene (GG1c) and dialkylated pyrene (GG1d):

Step 1 : pure 2,7-dihydroxipyrene (1.65 g, 7.04 mmol, 1 equiv) and CS2CO3 (1.15 g, 3.52 mmol, 0.5 equiv) were introduced into a 25 mL seal tube/schlenk flask.

Step 2: The system was flashed with argon.

Step 3: anhydrous DMSO (13.8 mL, 1.96 mL/mmoL) was added.

Step 4: The mixture was vigorously stirred until most of the reagents were dissolved, i.e about 3 hours at 40 °C (The color changed from brown to yellow-brown).

Step 5: Then, 11 -Bromoundecene (1.75 mL, 7.04 mmol, 1 equiv) was added into the reaction.

Step 6: The reaction mixture was stirred at 66 °C overnight.

Step 7: the reaction mixture was cooled to room temperature.

Step 8: the crude was filtered and the dialkylated pyrene was isolated

Step 9: The dialkylated pyrene was washed with cold acetone and hexane. The desired product was obtained as a cream solid (12-26 %). The product was termed “Dialkylated pyrene of Example GG1c” (Compound GG1d).

Step 10: water (50 ml/g dihydroxy) was added to the liquid phase until the liquid starts to become turbid because the monoalkylated pyrene begins to precipitate.

Step 11 : The monoalkylated pyrene was isolated by filtration.

Step 12: The desired product was obtained as a light Brown solid (32-42 %). The product was termed “Monoalkylated pyrene of Example GG1c” (Compound GG1c).

The correct structure of the finals products GG1c and GG1d were verified by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance ( 1 H, 13 C and HSQC).

In Alternative for the work-up:

In Step 8: Instead add HCI (1 M, to pH acid) to neutralize and stir 1 hr, then add water.

In Step 9: Instead extract with EtOAc (3x).

In Step 10: Instead wash the organic phase with brine, and dry over anhydrous MgSC .

In Step 11 : Remove solvent under reduced pressure.

In Step 12: Instead subject the crude product to flash column chromatography: with silica gel and as eluents Hex/EtOAc from 99:1 to 6:4.

In Step 13: Then, the desired product will be obtained as a light Brown solid (yield 26-36 %).

A possible purification method for mono/di mixtures could be recrystallization with acetone.
