Carbon and titanium dioxide nanotube polymer composite manufacturing – characterization and interphase modeling

G.C. Papanicolaou,  and D.V. Portan     University of Patras, Patras, Greece

Abstract

Composite exploration at the nanoscale size reveals the unexpected complexity of these materials in both structure and behavior. Carbon nanotube–reinforced polymer materials offer great possibilities for investigation of nanocomposites in basic and applied research. However, carbon nanotubes cannot be easily handled in forming organized structures. For this reason, titanium dioxide (titania) nanotubes are considered the ideal self-organized nanostructures for hybrid layered nanocomposite manufacturing. The present chapter describes the most important ...
