Poly(butylene terephthalate)/carbon nanotubes nanocomposites.

Part I. Carbon nanotubes functionalization and in situ synthesis (in English)

Summary
Functionalization of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) has been carried out. As a functionalization agent epoxy peroxide was used. The success of the MWCNTs functionalization was confirmed by Raman spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT) based nanocomposites have been prepared by a two-step melt polycondensation method (in situ synthesis). The nanocomposites containing from 0.1 to 0.3 wt % of modified (EpMWCNTs) and unmodified (MWCNTs) carbon nanotubes were prepared.
Keywords: nanocomposites, poly(butylene terephthalate), carbon nanotubes
