Transparent Electroconductive Thin Film and Its Production Method
Provided are a transparent electroconductive thin film of single-walled carbon nanotubes and its production method capable of further enhancing the electroconductivity and the light transmittance of the film and capable of simplifying the thin film formation process. The method comprises: dispersing single-walled carbon nanotubes of mixed metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWNTs) and semiconductor single-walled carbon nanotubes (s-SWNTs) in an amine solution containing an amine having a boiling point of from 20 to 400 DEG C. as a dispersant
centrifuging or filtering the resulting dispersion to concentrate m-SWNTs, thereby giving a dispersion rich in m-SWNTs
and applying the resulting dispersion rich in m-SWNTs onto a substrate to form a thin film thereon.
