By Brian P. Grady

The available compendium of polymers in carbon nanotubes (CNTs)Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)—extremely skinny tubes just a couple of nanometers in diameter yet in a position to reach lengths millions of instances greater—are best applicants to be used within the improvement of polymer composite fabrics. Bringing jointly millions of disparate learn works, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites: Manufacture, homes, and functions covers CNT-polymers from synthesis to capability functions, providing the elemental technology and engineering of this dynamic and complicated quarter in an obtainable, readable way.Designed to be of use to polymer scientists, engineers, chemists, physicists, and fabrics scientists, the publication covers carbon nanotube basics to assist polymer specialists comprehend CNTs, and polymer physics to assist these within the CNT box, making it a useful source for somebody operating with CNT-polymer composites. unique chapters describe the mechanical, rheological, electric, and thermal homes of carbon nanotube-polymer composites. together with a thesaurus that defines key words, Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites is vital interpreting for an individual seeking to achieve a basic realizing of CNTs and polymers, in addition to power and present purposes, together with electronics (shielding and obvious electrodes), flame retardants, and electromechanics (sensors and actuators), and their demanding situations.

Example text

With respect to nanotubes in the step-growth mechanism, functional groups are attached to the nanotubes that can react with the growing polymer when the latter is of any length. In other words, polymerization can start anywhere, either at the nanotube surface or in the monomer media. Statistically of course, the probability is that the two monomers will begin a polymerization rather than a functional group on a nanotube and a monomer. In this case, an individual carbon on a nanotube will only be directly bonded outward to one polymer chain; that is, the nanotube acts as an end group of the polymer chain.

Pragmatically, determining chain conformation after adsorption is much simpler with nanotubes than with other surfaces. The effect of carbon nanotubes on polymer configuration will be discussed in detail in Chapter 4, and a full discussion of the details of the characteristics of polymer configuration after adsorption on nanotubes will be delayed until that chapter. , functionalization, the chemical modification of carbon nanotubes has been accomplished on both bundled tubes and tubes that were previously dispersed in solution, either with or without a dispersing agent.

These calculations show that metallic conduction occurs when n À m ¼ 3q, where q is an integer. This means that all armchair tubes are metallic, and of the remainder 1/3 are conducting and 2/3 are semiconducting. The term metallic indicates that no threshold energy (voltage) is required for the nanotube to be able to conduct electrons; in other words, the relationship between voltage and current is approximately linear starting at 0 V. , the band gap voltage); above that 30 CHAPTER 2 CARBON NANOTUBES potential the relationship between voltage and current is approximately linear.
