CARBON NANOTUBES: A REVIEW OF THE CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART MATERIAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY TOWARDS ACHIEVING LARGE-SCALE INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTIONS AND COMMERCIALIZATION
Author: Boye T.E., Oyekale J.O., Arivie G.O.
We reviewed state of the art and science towards achieving large-scale industrial productions and commercialization of Carbon nanotubes’ (CNTs). It transcends their physical and chemical structure to the identification of the need for large-scale production of carbon nanotubes in enhancing manufacturing industrial processes, and potential frame work for commercialization. Solution potential with reference to the research and manufacturing industry, particularly in electronic device was x-rayed and evaluated estimating production capacity of the CNT process plant and the processes involved. The cost of manufacturing Nano-emission display (NED) device with CNTs was highlighted showing great commercial potential in this specified area. Furthermore, the viability of CNTs for possible large-scale industrial productions and commercialization was critically examined using PEST analysis.
Finally, it was concluded that, there are huge potentials for large scale industrial productions of CNTs investment both by the governments or private sectors.
Keywords: Carbon nanotubes’ (CNT’s), Large scale industrial production, Flat panel display devices
