Abstract:

The unique and extraordinary mechanical, electrical and thermal conductivity properties of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) make them ideal candidates as functional fillers for polymeric materials. Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) is an important engineering plastic finding widespread application in automotive, electronic and packaging technologies. The key challenge to achieving enhanced polymer properties is efficient dispersion and distribution ...
