Carbon nanotubes are one-dimensional nanocarbon materials. Carbon nanotubes have good electrical conductivity and excellent mechanical strength, and have excellent performance in energy storage, composites, environmental protection and other fields. In particular, China's thirteenth Five-Year Plan for the development of carbon nanotubes to give strong support, Mr. Iijima for new materials in China's future development to give a high degree of certainty
Mr. Iijima also visited the Cnano technology for technical exchange visit, Cnano technology for the manufacturer of carbon nanotubes, its technology from Tsinghua University Professor Wei Fei team to provide support. Mr. Iijima praised Cnano technology in energy applications on the industry first, the application of carbon nanotubes in lithium batteries. Carbon tube can effectively improve the energy density of lithium batteries to increase the cycle efficiency to meet the fast charge and high current discharge requirements, enhance the performance of lithium batteries play a pivotal role. At the same time Mr. Iijima for carbon tube industry direction given, and for carbon tubes in coatings, plastics, semiconductors and other areas of application development status of exchange.
