Abstract:
In view of their fascinating characteristics, much attention has been currently drawn
to carbon nanotubes and their use in a variety of applications. In this chapter, it is first
presented the basic concepts, the structure, some of the history and properties of carbon
nanotubes, along with an overview of experimental methods to produce them. Cost,
production capacity and health aspects are also tackled. This is followed by a discussion
on the various aspects regarding debundling and dispersion of carbon nanotubes, along
with the most common methods to accomplish that, including sonication, the use of
solvents and calandering. The final section of the chapter is devoted to the study of the
interfacial adhesion between nanotubes and polymers and the different strategies to
promote adhesion, especially functionalization via covalent, non-covalent and nanotube
grafting with polymers. Hopefully this material will be another tool to help interested
readers to understand the potential and challenges faced by scientists and engineers
regarding the use of carbon nanotubes as a reinforcement phase in nanocomposites.
