Abstract: Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) is shown to be an effective dispersant for single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), enabling uniform aqueous suspensions to be obtained at weight loadings of up to 0.23 mg/ml (>1% by weight relative to PEDOT:PSS) without recourse to additional surfactants. Thin films spin-coated from PEDOT:PSS/SWNT suspensions exhibited sheet resistances of 90 Ω/sq. at 80 % transmittance, slightly higher than equivalent films of pure PEDOT:PSS which exhibited sheet resistances of 70 Ω/sq. at the same transmittance.
