Adsorption capacities of N 2 and various organic vapors on select electric- arc and HiPco produced SWNTs were experimentally measured at 77 K and 298 K, respectively. The results indicated that the amount of N 2 adsorbed on a SWNT sample depended on the sample purity, methodology and on the sample age. Adsorption capacities of organic vapors (100 - 10000 ppmv) on SWNTs in humid conditions were much higher than those for microporous activated carbons. These results establish a foundation for additional studies related to potential environmental applications of SWNTs.
