Nanotechnology: chiral surfactants for dispersing carbon nanotubes

A novel way to disperse carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by using amphiphilic chiral side-chain liquid crystalline oligomers (ACSLCOs) as chiral surfactants, which possess dual affinity for both CNTs and chiral liquid crystals (CLCs), is reported for the first time.
