Abstract

• PP/MWCNT Nanocomposites were successfully prepared:! - Individual dispersion of MWCNT in PP is achieved! - Structural development was characterized! - Tensile properties can be significantly improved by only a small amount of CNT! - Dramatic improvements in electrical conductivity, thermal degradation stability, and dimensional uniformity are observed! • The outlook for engineering application of polymer nanocomposites is bright!.
