Paper Title:
Study on Properties of Carbon Nanotube/Magnesium Matrix Composite
  Abstract

Under the protection of argon gas, carbon nanotube reinforced magnesium metal matrix composite was made by stirring carbon nanotube into magnesium melts and formed by die casting. TEM and EDS methods were introduced to analyze boundary structure and chemical composition between carbon nanotube and magnesium metal matrix. The mechanical carbon nanotube properties of the composite were tested. Nickel chemical plating surface of carbon nanotube is favorable to adhesion of carbon nanotube to magnesium. Tests show that carbon nanotube, especially chemical nickel-plated one, has excellent role in strengthening the magnesium. The structure of magnesium was fined .The tensile strength, elongation, hardness and elastic modulus of the composite are improved.
