Polyolefin–carbon nanotube composites

M. Morcom and G. Simon,     Monash University Australia

Abstract:

There is increasing interest in the incorporation of carbon nanotubes in commodity matrices such as polyolefins, in order to produce materials with increased performance and functionality, while also taking advantage of properties that these plastics offer, such as low moisture absorption. The review focuses on polyethylene and polypropylene carbon nanotube nanocomposites in particular, with an emphasis on the processing methods used to produce these materials, along with the effect of the incorporation of carbon nanotubes on their crystallinity, mechanical, rheological, electrical and thermal properties. Aspects of carbon nanotube modification ...
