Abstract

The object of this book is to bring together all available information on the carbon nanotube based composites. Details of the more important processing techniques for manufacturing carbon nanotubes-polymer composites are discussed in Chapter 1, including preprocessing treatments as purifi-cation, graphitization and functionalization. Chapters 2 explores the state of the art concern-ing mechanical, thermal, electrical and optical properties of CNTs composites made of the most frequently used polymer matrixes. Two tables gives quick access to a vast amount of the available data on the mechanical and electrical properties of CNTs composites. In Chapter 3 a reviews of the numerical models, which have been developed in attempts to improve the un-derstanding of the effects of CNTs in a polymer matrix, is given. Chapter 4 provides numer-ous examples of the countless possible applications of this category of composites. This book reviews the status of worldwide research in both single-walled and multi-walled carbon nanotube based composites. It serves as a practical guide on carbon nanotube based composites and a reference to students and researchers from the academia and industry.
