Paper Title:
Characterization of Polycarbonate/Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Composites
  Abstract

Polycarbonate/multiwalled carbon nanotubes (PC/MWNT) nanocomposites with different contents of MWNT were successfully prepared by melt compounding. The mechanical properties of the PC/MWNT nanocomposites were effectively increased due to the incorporation of MWNTs. The composites were characterized using scanning electron microscopy in order to obtain the information on the dispersion of MWNT in the polymeric matrix. In case of 0.3 wt% of MWNT in the matrix, strength and modulus of the composite increased by 30% and 20%, respectively. In addition, the dispersion of MWNTs in the PC matrix resulted in substantial decrease in the electrical resistivity of the composites as the MWNTs loading was increased from 1.0 wt% to 1.5 wt%.
