Title: New NIST Tests Explore Safety of Nanotubes in Modern Plastics Over Time
Description: Exposed to intense ultraviolet light and high temperatures, samples of epoxy containing multiwalled carbon nanotubes deteriorated. Exposure tended to destroy the epoxy, but on the surface remained a network of nanotubes, which NIST tests indicated were less damaged than the epoxy over time, ranging from approximately 6 months (A) to 18 months (B) to 4 years (C) in subtropical conditions.
