Abstract

Because of their unique physical, chemical, and structural properties, carbon nanotubes (CNT) are playing an increasingly important role in the development of new engineering materials [1]. Across many different applications, CNT/polymer composites have been extensively studied [2] S.B. Sinnot and R. Andrews, Carbon nanotubes: synthesis, properties, and applications, Crit Rev Solid State Mater Sci 26 (2001), pp. 145–249.[2]. The key problem for CNT/polymer composite elaboration is the dispersion, compatibilization, and stabilization of the CNT in the polymer matrix. To solve this problem, a structure with di-block copolymers, one with a good affinity to CNT (monomer M1), the other being the matrix (monomer M2), is proposed in this study, as shown on the two steps mechanism of Fig. 1.
