Abstract:

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are excellent candidates for substituting or complementing conventional nanofillers in the fabrication of multifunctional polymer nanocomposites owing to their unique electronic, thermal and mechanical properties. The critical challenge is to uniformly disperse and exfoliate CNTs into polymers to achieve good matrix/nanotube adhesion that maximizes the transfer of the nanotube properties to the polymer matrix. However, many potential applications have been prevented ...
