Carbon Nanotube Based Composites

Details on the more important processing techniques for manufacturing CNT-polymer composites are discussed, including such preprocessing treatments as purification, graphitisation, and functionalisation. The book explores the state of the art concerning mechanical, thermal, electrical, and optical properties of CNT composites made of the most frequently used polymer matixes. It also includes a review of the numerical models, which have been developed in attempts to improve the understanding of the effects of CNT in a polymer matrix, and numerous examples of the possible applications of this category of composites.
