Abstract
The demand for high-purity semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (sc-SWNTs) has increased considerably with the aim of utilizing their superior properties in a range of future applications. Among post-sorting methods, conjugated polymers have been regarded as one of the candidates to selectively isolate sc-SWNTs with uniform electrical properties. Herein, we demonstrate the ability to selectively sort two types of SWNTs by the two polymers PCTV18T and PC12TV18T, which have different alkyl side-chain densities. PC12TV18T, with a high alkyl chain density, shows great sorting ability for both high-pressure carbon monoxide and plasma-torch-grown SWNTs with a weight ratio of almost 1:1 in toluene solution. In addition, it is found that PC12TV18T selectively sorts sc-SWNTs with the high purity. The chirality and diameters of the enriched sc-SWNTs are further confirmed by Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence excitation/emission mapping. Finally, we fabricate bottom gate/bottom contact thin-film transistors using the enriched sc-SWNTs as semiconductors to verify the electrical performance. Devices with well-percolated sc-SWNT networks displayed p-dominant properties with average charge-carrier mobilities of 2.05 cm2 V− 1 S− 1 and 9.87 cm2 V− 1 and on/off current ratios of approximately 104 and 105 for high-pressure carbon monoxide and plasma-torch-grown SWNTs, respectively.
