Abstract

Adsorption of anthracene as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon molecule on the pristine multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and functionalized MWCNTs with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) has been investigated in an attempt to
explore adsorption mechanisms. The morphology of MWCNTs was observed by a Scanning Electron Microscope. Thermal Gravimetric Analysis was used to obtain the degree of polymer functionaliza- tion of MWCNTs after the thermal polymerization of Methyl methacrylate (MMA) with benzoylperoxide. Changing of fluorescence intensity as a function of time is recorded to follow the variance of adsorption.
