Chemical transformation of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT), edge-terminated with carboxylic groups, to SWNT species with amino groups directly attached to the tube open ends has been performed. Different synthetic approaches have been investigated. The reaction products were characterised by FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, XPS and SEM.
