Functionalization and Dispersion of Carbon Nanomaterials Using an Environmentally Friendly Ultrasonicated Ozonolysis Process Eudora S. Y. Yeo1, Gary I. Mathys2, Narelle Brack3, Erik T. Thostenson4,5,6, Andrew N. Rider1 1Aerospace Division, Defence Science and Technology Group, 2Maritime Division, Defence Science and Technology Group, 3Department of Chemistry and Physics, La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science, La Trobe University, 4Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Delaware, 5Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Delaware, 6Center for Composite Materials, University of Delaware Here, a novel method for the functionalization and stable dispersion of carbon nanomaterials in aqueous environments is described. Ozone is injected directly into an aqueous dispersion of carbon nanomaterial that is continuously recirculated through a high-powered ultrasonic cell.
