Carbon Nanotubes: Been There, Done That?

A second wave of CNT consolidation is likely because some key markets are expected to take off faster than others and the rewards are not prone to be spread evenly. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were once the favorite "new kid on the block." They appeared poised to become a revolutionary material that transformed countless industries and helped us create an elevator to the moon. But this technology subsequently fell off the radar for many as it struggled to make commercial headway. The situation was exacerbated when an even newer kid on the block, graphene, stole away all the attention and money. Yet despite all this, CNTs are now making a steady but quiet comeback. Multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) have seen their prices fall to as low as $50/kg for un-purified versions in some quarters, which is helping open-up a range of markets. The production capacity was scaled up creat...
