PCL-CNT nanocomposites prepared by melt compounding and evaluation of their basic properties

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Poly(ε-caprolactone)-based carbon nanotube composites (PCL-CNT) fabricated by melt compounding were developed in this work. Complex analysis of main properties of PCL and PCL-CNT composites was carried out in this study by means of different experimental methods such as dielectric spectroscopy in frequency domain, X-ray diffraction, DSC analysis, scanning electron and optical microscopy, FTIR analysis, and rheological analysis. It has been found that the percolating threshold for studied composites is observed at 0.1 wt% CNT. The developed PCL-CNT composites are suitable for processing by extrusion.
