ABSTRACT
A method for the reliable fabrication of less than 200 nm thick, free-standing asprepared, purified, acid-cut and octadecylamine (ODA) functionalized SWNTs films having large surface areas exceeding several cm[SUP2] is described. Films were characterized using a variety of optical, microscopic and spectroscopic methods.
