Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are one-atom-thick rolled-up graphene sheets, typically with diameters between 0.6 and 2.0 nm and lengths up to 500 mm The most remarkable properties of nanotubes are found in SWCNTs:

- Incredible strength (they are 100 times stronger than steel at one sixth the weight);
- Electrical conductivity as high as copper, but five times lighter;
- Thermal conductivity as high as diamond (up to 1000oC);
- Huge surface area;
- Highest length-to-diameter ratio;
- Flexibility;
- Thermal stability;
- Lightweight;
- Chemical inertness (SWCNTs are compatible with almost all materials).

Due to these unique properties, SWCNTs have great potential for utilisation as a multi-functional additive and as the basis for creating new products with previously unattainable properties They allow to improve the specific features of most known materials And this can be achieved using a very low concentration of SWCNTs - starting from 0.01% of the total weight of the material The market has grown significantly in volume over the past two years with companies such as OCSiAl announcing large capacity increases.
Single-walled carbon nanotubes are vastly superior to multiwall ones in terms of their specific properties While a SWCNT is a rolled-up graphene sheet, a MWCNT is a rolled-up graphite sheet Their properties and impact on materials differ just as graphene properties differ from graphite properties MWCNTs only become efficient at concentrations which are 20 to 100 higher than the concentrations of SWCNTs MWCNTs cannot be used in applications where colour or transparency are important.

However, SWCNTs have not been used in industry until recently owing to the absence of technology for their mass production and, as a consequence, their high price This has recently charge due to improvements in manufacturing and capacity increases/
