A review. This paper describes a novel method to covalently functionalized nanotubes that bear terminated isocyanate, hydroxyl, amine and epoxy group, which then react covalently with other mols. The first step is prepn. of COOH-terminated MWNT by EB irradn. of unmodified nanotubes. The carboxylic groups were used as reaction precursors in the covalent functionalization. The MWNTs attached to the organofunctional moieties have greater versatility for further utilization in different application fields such as macroinitiator, electroconductive nanocomposite, biol., water treatment, and starting material for another cycle of functionalization.
