Morphologies and Structures of Maleic Anhydride Grafted Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes
Abstract. Multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were modified by grafting the maleic anhydride (MAH). The morphologies and structures of modified multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were characterized by using Scanning Electrohic Microscope (SEM) and Fourier Transformation Infrared (FTIR). The results showed that a layer of maleic anhydride was grafted on the surface of MWNTs by covalent bonding.
