Abstract Thermoanalytical and electron microscopic methods were used as characterisation tools for the determination of the composition of single walled carbon nanotube samples. Acid purification method of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCN) proved to be effective, resulting in a three fold increase in the percentage of SWNTs present in the purified product as determined by thermogravimetric analysis. In this work we report the thermogravimetric analysis by conventional and high resolution methods of the raw SWNTs and purified SWNTs.
