Carbon Nanotubes Channel Functionality into LiBs, Composites

Invented in Japan, single-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can increase the electric capacity and power of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), as well as boost the performance of plastics composites. Sensing their potential, Japanese fluoropolymer supplier @Daikin is investing in the world's leafing supplier @OCSiAl


Current annual production capacity at OCSiAl is 80 tonnes annually, which accounts for 97% of the world's single wall carbon nanotube production capacities.
