Abstract:

The primary current objective is to develop knowledge-based technologies of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), understanding the surface chemistry and processing tools used in designing polymer-based composites. The chapter emphasizes the different functionalization processes and the parameters affecting the nanotube dispersability in polymeric matrices. We also describe different processing methods for incorporating such functional nanofillers into the polymer backbone. How functionalized carbon nanotubes can improve the thermal, mechanical and electrical ...
