Morphology and Properties of Carbon Nanotubes Modified Epoxy
Multi-walled carbon nanobutes (MWNTs) reinforced epoxy resin nanocomposites were fabricated by functionalizing the MWNTs with amino group. The functionlization of MWNTs was characterized by FTIR, elementary analysis, and TEM, and the MWNTs dispersion was characterized by optical microscopy and SEM. MWNTs functionalization with ethylene diamine improved the nanotube dispersion in the epoxy matrix composites. The dynamic mechanical thermal properties and thermal properties of MWNTs/epoxy nanocomposites are briefly discussed in terms of the MWNT loading and dispersion.
