Dispersion of carbon nanotubes in water with the aid of surfactants is becoming common practice, however methodologies vary greatly among the literature. Here the variables of sonication type, length of processing time and power input are examined to find optimal values for dispersion of arc-discharge nanotubes in sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate.
