Summary of "Robust carbon nanotube foam for efficient electromagnetic interference shielding and microwave absorption."

Lightweight and robust carbon nanotube (CNT)/chitosan (CS) foams were assembled by a facile unidirectional freeze-drying method in this work. The CNT/CS foam exhibited an excellent electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding effectiveness (SE) of 37.6 dB while the density was only 17.6 mg·cm, and thus the corresponding specific SE was up to 8556 dB·cm·g. The superior EMI shielding performance was mainly attributed to the perfect conductive networks. Additionally, the absorption coefficient of CNT/CS foam was up to 81.73% under high EMI SE of 37.6 dB, which was remarkable among the reported EMI shielding materials with comparable EMI shielding level. More importantly, the addition of CS significantly increased the compressive strength and modulus of CNT/CS foam to 34.1 KPa and 177.1 KPa, which were 84% and 149% higher than those for the pure CNT foam, respectively. These results indicate that the CNT/CS foam is an ideal high-efficient EMI shielding material, which has high potential applications in the fields of aerospace, automotive, and electronic devices.
