Abstract
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are considered as high potential filler material to improve the mechanical properties of epoxy nanocomposites. The CNTs are functionalized by attaching melamine to improve the dispersibility in epoxy matrix and to enhance the interfacial bonding between CNTs and matrix. The tensile tests and single edge notch bending (SENB) tests were performed for CNT/Epoxy and M-CNT/Epoxy nanocomposites at various weight fraction of...
