- ... Zwitterionization of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (ZCNTs) is initially conducted by grafting poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid) and poly(4-vinylpyridine) copolymers via an atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) reaction, and the products obtained are further used as an aqueous additive to fabricate thin-film nanocomposite (TFN) nanofiltration (NF) membranes. The most optimal membrane with a ZCNT do ...
