This cover image highlights different molecular structures of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) buckypapers. The SWCNT length is found to have a pronounced impact on the structure of buckypapers. When the SWCNTs are short, they tend to form short bundles and to be tightly packed, exhibit high density and small pores, while long SWCNTs are entangled together at a low density accompanied by large pores. These structure variations contribute to distinct viscoelasticities of buckypapers. The energy dissipation for buckypapers with long SWCNTs under cyclic shear is dominated by the zipping–unzipping mechanism, while the sliding-friction mechanism controls the energy dissipation between short SWCNTs.
