Abstract

Mixtures containing different weight ratios of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and double wall carbon nanotubes (DWCNT) were prepared and studied by in situ Raman spectroelectrochemistry. Two components of the G′ mode in the Raman spectra, which can be resolved at high electrode potentials, were assigned to the signals from inner tubes of DWCNT and outer tubes of DWCNT together with SWCNT. The dependence of the ratios of these two components of the G′ mode on the nominal amount of SWCNT and DWCNT in the samples was simulated so that the residual amount of SWCNT in the original DWCNT could be determined. Additionally, the individual contributions of all components of carbon nanotubes into the total area of the G' mode at high electrode potentials were estimated from the simulation.
