The purpose of the paper is to present
up-to-date comprehensive overview of current research progress in the
field of EPD of CNTs. The paper specifically reviews the
preparation and characterisation of stable CNT suspensions, and the mechanism of the EPD process; it includes discussion of pure
CNT coatings and CNT/nanoparticle composite films. A complete discussion of the EPD parameters is presented, including electrode
deposition time, electrode separation, deposition voltage and resultant
electric field. The paper highlights potential applica-
of the resulting CNT and CNT/composite structures, in areas such as
field emission devices, fuel cells, and supercapacitors.
