I'm pleased to report that our paper "Synthesis and characterization of polyvinyl alcohol based multiwalled carbon nanotube nano composites" was accepted for publication in Physica E yesterday. This manuscript reports on a clever utilization of the Fischer esterification reaction to graft PVA polymers to multiwall carbon nanotubes containing suitable carboxyl binding sites. The main importance of the paper is that it is our first joint paper with the group of Prof. Mustafa B. Muradov of the Baku State University to appear in an SCI journal with impact factor. The manuscript was expertly managed by Elvin Malikov of BSU.
