Abstract: Solar paints or conducting paints have replaced the solar panels as it requires high installation and maintenance costs. Uses of cadmium and other nano particles as fillers to efficiently conduct solar energy have been extensively reported in the literature. However, these nanoparticles have adverse effect on the environment. In the present work, literature on CNT synthesis and its use as fillers to induce conductive properties on paints is discussed in details.
