Glass fiber/epoxy-reinforced multi-walled carbon nanotube buckypaper composites (GF/EP/BP) were fabricated by hot compression molding process to evaluate its electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding efficiency (SE) in the X-band (8.2–12.4 GHz) frequency range. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed a porous structure for the CNT film and good overall quality of the GF/EP/BP composite with no apparent voids or defects associated to the lamination process. The electrical conductivity of the CNT film was around 996 S/m and its incorporation at the mid-plane of the laminates had no influence in the electrical conduction of the composites. EMI SE results of about 18 dB were obtained for the 3 mm nanostructured composite over the X-band so that the dielectric properties, the total electrical conductivity, and the interfacial polarization phenomenon had great importance in the EMI shielding properties of the manufactured composites.

Abstract An excellent electromagnetic wave absorbing material (EWAM) should possess both wider effective absorption bandwidth (EB) and lower minimum reflection loss ( RL min ), which depends on good impedance matching between the EWAMs and air and strong attenuation of electromagnetic wave (EW) inside the absorber. In this work, single-layer graphene/thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) porous composites with different foam ratio and gradient foam ratio multilayer graphene/TPU porous composites with...

Abstract Buckypaper (BP) was prepared as efficient electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials in X-band (8.2–12.4 GHz). The EMI shielding effectiveness (SE) of 31.2 dB and a high specific SE of 19850 dB cm2/g have been realized by BP of 35 μm thick. Notably, the absorption-dominated SE above 100 dB can be achieved by constructing multilayer structure or sandwich structure using BP and polypropylene sheet. For multilayer structure, the increment in EMI SE is contributed by absorption ...

Abstract This study deals with different magnetic additives based on ferrites (MnZn, LaCa (Co and Ti)), carbonyl iron (CI), and iron filaments (IF) formulated in epoxy resin. Morphological and structural characteristics of the additives were evaluated. Based on these additives samples with both different thickness and weight fractions (1-70 wt%) were prepared. The formulated composites were analyzed considering different electromagnetic characteristics: reflectivity, shielding effectiveness, the...

Abstract Broadband microwave absorbing materials with a multilayer structure based on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) as a filtering layer has been designed. The absorption curves of the multilayer structure change from a single peak to double peaks after the addition of the filtering layer. As a result, the effective microwave absorption bandwidth is broadened to 12.6 GHz with a total thickness of 2.3 mm. Normalized power flow and power loss distribution maps at fixed frequencies were an...

Abstract A highly porous film composed of a three-dimensional network of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), also known as buckypaper (BP), was prepared by vacuum filtration of a well-dispersed suspension of MWCNT/H20 with the aid Triton X-100 surfactant. The key contribution of this work is to achieve the best parameters during the preparation of the suspension and find the best way to remove the excess triton X-100 from the nanotube network. The stability of suspension in different pH, the a...

Abstract Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) was solubilized in N,N-dimethyl formamide (DMF) and the electrospinning process has been employed to obtain PAN nanofibers (PF). Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) were dispersed with the aid of Triton X-100 surfactant and subsequently centrifugated. Buckypapers (BP/PF) were prepared by vacuum filtration procedure of MWCNT suspension supernatant stacking four PF layers over a nylon membrane. The PF removal was carried out by immersing the BP/PF system in DMF an...

Abstract Polyimide (PI) is a high-performance polymer with ultrahigh heat stability while carbon nanotube (CNT) possesses high mechanical strength, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. Here we report a facile and low-cost method free from CNT pre-dispersion for fabricating super-aligned carbon nanotube (SACNT)/PI composite film which combines the advantages of both SACNT and PI. Flexible and scratch-resistant composite film with high CNT content, uniform dispersion of CNTs, and control...
