Summary:

Carbon nanotube inks for dip-pen nanolithography patterning were formulated for applications such as electroactive composites and self-sensing composites. The stability, dispersion, and accuracy of patterning of the inks were studied to select the appropriate ink for functionalizing composites with carbon nanotubes.
