Advancements in the separation, purification, and post processing of metallic carbon nanotubes are enabling these materials to be used in new printed electronic devices. While CNTs have been researched for over 10 years, recent innovations that allow for increased concentrations of CNTs all them to be used in conductive applications that need to be applied by direct printing methods such as ink-jet deposition. By formulating CNTs in new ways, the realization of new devices that can be printed directly onto a variety of substrates by ink-jet will allow for printed electronic devices to be realized.
