発明の名称 (英語) Transparent electroconductive thin film and its production method
発明の概要(英語) (US8425873)
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° 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.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. A method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film comprising: 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, wherein the amine solution does not contain a nonvolatile polymer ingredient,
centrifuging or filtering the resulting dispersion to concentrate m-SWNTs, thereby giving a dispersion rich in m-SWNTs, and
spraying the resulting dispersion rich in m-SWNTs onto a transparent substrate with an airbrush to form a thin film having a thickness in a range of from 10 to 100 nm thereon, then processing the thin film with acid to form a thin film consisting essentially of single-walled carbon nanotubes containing metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWNTs) and having a visible light transmittance of from 96 to 97% in a wavelength range of from 400 to 800 nm and a surface resistivity of less than 5 * 104OMEGA /sq,
wherein a plurality of the single-walled carbon nanotubes of the thin film are individually separated and uniformly dispersed in the film as kept in contact with each other while randomly crosslinked therein, and there are no aggregates of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
[claim2]
2. The method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film as claimed in claim 1, wherein the amine is at least one member selected from the group consisting of primary amines, secondary amines, tertiary amines and aromatic amines.
[claim3]
3. The method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film as claimed in claim 1, wherein the amine is at least one member selected from the group consisting of isopropylamine, diethylamine, propylamine, 1-methylpropylamine, triethylamine and N,N,N',N'-tetramethylenediamine.
[claim4]
4. The method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film as claimed in claim 1, wherein the single-walled carbon nanotubes are dispersed in the amine solution while ultrasonically processed.
[claim5]
5. A method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film comprising: 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, wherein the amine solution does not contain a nonvolatile polymer ingredient,
centrifuging or filtering the resulting dispersion to concentrate m-SWNTs, thereby giving a dispersion rich in m-SWNTs, and
spraying the resulting dispersion rich in m-SWNTs onto a transparent substrate with an airbrush to form a thin film having a thickness in a range of from 10 to 100 nm thereon, then processing the thin film with acid to form a thin film consisting essentially of single-walled carbon nanotubes containing metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWNTs) and having a visible light transmittance of from 85 to 96% in a wavelength range of from 400 to 800 nm and a surface resistivity of less than 1 * 104OMEGA /sq,
wherein a plurality of the single-walled carbon nanotubes of the thin film are individually separated and uniformly dispersed in the film as kept in contact with each other while randomly crosslinked therein, and there are no aggregates of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
[claim6]
6. The method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film as claimed in claim 5, wherein the amine is at least one member selected from the group consisting of primary amines, secondary amines, tertiary amines and aromatic amines.
[claim7]
7. The method for producing a transparent electroconductive thin film as claimed in claim 5, wherein the amine is at least one member selected from the group consisting of isopropylamine, diethylamine, propylamine, 1-methylpropylamine, triethylamine and N,N,N',N'-tetramethylenediamine.
[claim8]
