Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites by Brian P. Grady

By Brian P. Grady

The available compendium of polymers in carbon nanotubes (CNTs)

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)—extremely skinny tubes just a couple of nanometers in diameter yet capable of reach lengths millions of instances greater—are best applicants to be used within the improvement of polymer composite fabrics. Bringing jointly millions of disparate learn works, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites: Manufacture, homes, and purposes covers CNT-polymers from synthesis to power functions, featuring the elemental technological know-how and engineering of this dynamic and complicated zone in an available, readable way.

Designed to be of use to polymer scientists, engineers, chemists, physicists, and fabrics scientists, the e-book covers carbon nanotube basics to assist polymer specialists comprehend CNTs, and polymer physics to aid these within the CNT box, making it a useful source for somebody operating with CNT-polymer composites. specified chapters describe the mechanical, rheological, electric, and thermal houses of carbon nanotube-polymer composites.

Including a word list that defines keywords, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites is vital analyzing for a person trying to achieve a primary realizing of CNTs and polymers, in addition to strength and present functions, together with electronics (shielding and obvious electrodes), flame retardants, and electromechanics (sensors and actuators), and their challenges.

Sample text

Addition polymerizations do occur where nanotubes do not have to be prefunctionalized in order to graft to a polymer. High-energy radiation such as microwaves96 or gamma radiation97 is able to cause the direct attachment of certain polymers to the nanotubes.

An electrochemical reaction occurs when a voltage is applied to a carbon nanotube electrode immersed in a solution that has a suitable reagent that can generate a radical species via electron transfer between the tube and the reagent. If the tubes are unfunctionalized, tubes will be coated with polymer; if tubes are functionalized appropriately, covalently bonded polymer can be present. The next two sections will detail how different polymers can be attached via “grafting from” and “grafting to” reactions to nanotubes.

3 eV. 7 nm);55 the conductivity can be calculated as about 5 Â 107 S/m. 56 An interesting electrical property of carbon nanotubes is their ability to work as field emitters. Field emission is a property by which a material can be induced to eject electrons simply by putting a voltage difference between it and an object, that is, a sheet of metal or wire grid mesh. Carbon nanotubes are excellent field emitters because of their highly anisotropic nature and their small diameter. The ejection of electrons occurs at the tips of the nanotubes, where the nanotube axis is aligned perpendicular to the plane of the metal sheet or mesh.
