The Effect of Triton® X-100 on CNT/PP Composite’s Electrical Conductivity
TCNT(Triton® X-100 pre-treated carbon nanotubes)/ PP (Polypropylene) composite has been successfully prepared and charactered by SEM, electrical tests. It was found that the best usage of Triton X-100 (P-octyl polyethylene glycol phenyl ether) was 80 wt% based on the CNTs. The results showed that the TCNTs could effectively improve the composites’ electrical conductivity over pristine CNTs. The mechanisms for the results have been discussed.
