Surface Modification of Nanotube Fillers
MetadataShow full item record
In this first volume in the Polymer Nano, Micro- & Macrocomposites book series, authors from leading academic institutions and companies share their first-hand knowledge of nanotube-enhanced polymer composites. They cover all important methods for the functionalization of nanotube fillers, including polymer wrapping, non-covalent modification with nanoparticles, silica layers or entrapped micelles, chemically induced growth of multilayers, techniques based on covalent bonding, such as polymer or quantum dot attachment, and direct polymerization approaches. As a result, the text details the surface modifications of nanotubes and shows how to control them to achieve the desired results.
