Abstract

One bottleneck for using CNTs as fillers in polymer-based nanocomposites is that as-produced CNTs invariably exist as aligned aggregates or bundles that are tightly bound by an estimated interaction of 500 eV/µm of tube length for SWCNT or highly entangled in case of MWCNT. Therefore, the dispersion and incorporation of CNTs as individuals in polymer matrices is one of the most important and challenging tasks toward maximizing the translation of CNT properties to the nanocomposites.
