Sintering and Properties of MoSi2 Matrix Composites Reinforced by Carbon Nanotubes
MoSi2 composites reinforced by carbon nanotubes were prepared by spark-discharge plasma sintering (SPS), and the dispersion of carbon nanotubes in the MoSi2 was also discussed in this work. The mechanical properties of MoSi2 reinforced by carbon nanotubes were measured. Investigation indicated that the carbon nanotubes can be well dispersed by introducing the dispersant C12H25SO3Na and the mechanical properties of the composites improved significantly. The mechanism that the composites were reinforced and toughened were discussed in this work.
