High-shear melt processing of polymer–carbon nanotube composites
Y. Li and H. Shimizu, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan
This chapter discusses the shear rate effects on the structure and properties of polymer–carbon nanotube (CNT) composites. The chapter first introduces the newly developed high-shear processing technique and its application for preparing polymer nanoblends. We then discuss the morphologies and properties of CNT nanocomposites based on homopolymers and polymer blends by the high-shear processing technique.
The nanoscale dimension, along with their large shape anisotropy, ...
