The dispersion of CNTs (Carbon Nanotubes) within polymer matrix is a big obstruction to restrict the application of CNTs. In this paper, the dispersion of MWCNTs(Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes) within epoxy resin, which was improved by the coupling agent Volan and dispersing agent BYK, were studied. It showed that the best dispersing result of MWCNTs was obtained by combination treatment of Volan and BYK.
