Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites: Manufacture, Properties, by Brian P. Grady

By Brian P. Grady

The obtainable compendium of polymers in carbon nanotubes (CNTs)Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)—extremely skinny tubes just a couple of nanometers in diameter yet capable of reach lengths hundreds of thousands of occasions greater—are major applicants to be used within the improvement of polymer composite fabrics. Bringing jointly hundreds of thousands of disparate study works, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites: Manufacture, houses, and purposes covers CNT-polymers from synthesis to capability functions, featuring the fundamental technology and engineering of this dynamic and complicated sector in an obtainable, readable way.Designed to be of use to polymer scientists, engineers, chemists, physicists, and fabrics scientists, the publication covers carbon nanotube basics to aid polymer specialists comprehend CNTs, and polymer physics to aid these within the CNT box, making it a useful source for somebody operating with CNT-polymer composites. unique chapters describe the mechanical, rheological, electric, and thermal houses of carbon nanotube-polymer composites. together with a word list that defines key words, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites is key analyzing for a person trying to achieve a basic knowing of CNTs and polymers, in addition to strength and present purposes, together with electronics (shielding and obvious electrodes), flame retardants, and electromechanics (sensors and actuators), and their demanding situations.

Example text

The thermal conductivity of multiwalled tubes has been measured as 300061 and 2000 W/(m K)62 at room temperature and shows a maximum at about 320 K. 70–72 The reason for this is that the heat capacity has been found to be close to that of graphite for MWCNTs especially at room temperature and above,71 and the heat capacity of graphite is well known. 70,73 One study did find a significantly higher value for DWCNTs using a bulk measurement technique;74 however, since this sample was a commercial sample, perhaps residual impurities caused the higher value.

However, the overlap between absorption energies coupled with the small effect of environment, including bundling, on the transition has meant that this technique has proven to be of little utility.

Because of the narrow operating window, these oxidative methods tend to reduce the length of tubes as well as leave functional groups on the surface that may not be desired. The other method involves physical separation that is possible due to the long length of nanotubes relative to the other carbon species. In this case, the nanotube-containing material must be dispersed in a liquid. One technique is simple filtration; nanotubes are going to remain on the retentate side while many impurities will pass through the filter.
