Herein, we have studied a structure of SWNT films doped by organic molecules. In this study, we reacted organic molecules with SWNT films by a vapor phase and a liquid phase, respectively. The structure of doped SWNT films was investigated using synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction measurements, and we found the clear difference between the vapor phase reaction (v-doped) and the liquid phase reaction (I-doped). In v-doped SWNT films, organic molecules are predominantly encapsulated inside SWNTs, although molecules adsorbed on the surface of SWNT bundles in I-doped SWNT films.
