Carbon nanotubes in multiphase polymer blends

A. Göldel and P. Pötschke,     Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden Germany

Abstract:

Nowadays, melt blending of two or more polymers in a conventional extruder is one of the cheapest and fastest ways to tailor the material’s properties according to the requirements of novel applications. By combining the various blend phase structures and property profiles with a conductive, high aspect ratio nanofiller such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), specific morphological structures can be achieved that offer a much higher potential for the development of new functional materials than single-polymer composites. Thus, understanding and control of CNT localization inside the developing phase morphology ...
