Discovered within the 20th century, carbon nanotubes (CNT) have been an essential component of technological know-how and by means of the start of the 21st century, revolutionizing chemistry, physics, and fabrics technology. more moderen advances in carbon nanotube construction equipment have led to a major push to include CNTs into polymer matrices. even supposing many advances were made, significant hindrances proceed unresolved: the enhancement of interfacial adhesion among CNTs and polymer matrix, and the development of dispersion of CNTs in polymers.
Both sizeable unique participants to the sphere, the authors current Carbon Nanotubes for Polymer Reinforcement, the 1st monograph on a variety of traditional and cutting edge innovations to disperse and functionalize carbon nanotubes for polymer reinforcement, elegantly explaining the elemental sciences and applied sciences desirous about these procedures. themes lined include:
- Use of CNTs in fabricating novel polymer composites
- Principles and mechanisms in the back of CNT dispersion and functionalization
- Methods for the functionalization and dispersion of CNTs in polymer matrices
- Effects of CNTs on useful and mechanical homes of polymer composites
- Optimization of CNT/polymer nanocomposite fabrication
Carbon Nanotubes for Polymer Reinforcement is a complete remedy and demanding overview of the hot classification of polymer nanocomposites, and issues to parts of destiny advancements. Composites engineers, scientists, researchers, and scholars will locate the elemental wisdom and technical effects contained herein informative and worthwhile references for his or her paintings, even if for complicated examine or for layout and manufacture of such composites.

1 Structural and Morphological Characterization of CNTs Structural and morphological factors play an important role in determining the properties of CNTs. Therefore, various techniques have been developed and employed to obtain important structural information on the nanoscopic scale. Because the diameters of CNTs are smaller than the wavelengths of visible light (200–600 nm), traditional optical microscopic techniques are not able to characterize the morphology and surface features of CNTs. Therefore, electron microscopic techniques have primarily been employed for this purpose.
