Abstract

Polymer nanocomposites have a great interest because of special properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as excellent for mechanical, chemical, electrical and thermal properties. CNTs are categorized as single walled nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi walled nanotubes (MWCNTs). The largest challenge is how to achieve uniform distribution of CNTs within the polymer matrix due to CNTs tend to agglomerated because of their hydrophobic nature. The resulted from CNTs bundles or aggregates reduced the mechanical performance of the final polymer nanocomposites. The surface of the CNTs must be modifiy to reduce the hydrophobicity and improved the interfacial adhesion to a bulk polymer. This paper reviewed the two (2) treatments of CNTs such as physical methods and chemical methods to obtain a better dispersion and enhance the CNTs properties in polymer nanocomposites.
