A Concise Account on the Properties of CNT-Reinforced Epoxy Composites based on some Select References
Recently it has been reported in the technical literature that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have distinct effects on thermal, mechanical and electric properties of epoxy resins. Compared to single-walled nanotubes (SWCNT), multiwalled nanotubes (MWCNT) apparently show greater improvements. The maximum aspect ratio (L/D) of CNT is reportedly as high as 138,000,000. In addition, the carbon nanotubes when treated with surface modifier to generate functional groups on their surface can afford to provide better improvement of the properties of the epoxy based CNT-particulate composite system. There are a number of factors that can influence the properties of epoxy-CNT systems. This paper examined the technical contents from selective references and made an attempt to highlight the general understanding of the properties and performance of epoxy – CNT particulate composite systems.
