MWNT-CdSe hybrid nanomaterials were prepared with carboxylic acid-treated CdSe nanoparticles and amino-functionalized MWNTs. The hybridization of MWNT-CdSe nanomaterials was performed by the formation of covalent bond between MWNT and CdSe. Their covalent bond lengths were varied with changing the linking spacers. Amino-functionalized MWNTs were reacted with CdSe nanoparticles which were functionalized with carboxylic acid groups. Their detailed structures were characterized by FT-IR, XPS, and small angle X-ray scattering. Through small angle X-ray scattering experiments, it was found that the structures of CdSe nanoparticles were not regular, and their sizes were broadly distributed in solution. The longer amino-functionalized MWNTs were thermally decomposed at lower temperature. The photoluminescence (PL) of chemically-linked MWNT-CdSe hybrid nanomaterials were weaker than that of CdSe nanoparticles. In addition, their PL intensities more weakened on the MWNT-CdSe with the longer spacers.
