Electrical properties of low-doped carbon nanotubes/epoxy resin composite materials cured in an electrical area: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0



The habits {of electrical} conductivity throughout the curing of composites based mostly on epoxy resin doped with functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with the appliance of fixed and alternating electrical fields was experimentally studied. A brief shift of the utmost {of electrical} conductivity with a rise within the electrical area amplitude was noticed. It was proven that throughout the electrical present stream by way of the pattern, a contest between the processes of agglomeration and orientation of the CNT in an utilized electrical fields takes place. Such competitors concurrently contributes to the expansion {of electrical} conductivity, the polymerization processes, and complicates the mobility of the CNT within the polymer matrix. It was discovered that the effectivity of the exterior direct and alternating electrical fields elevated with the lower of carbon nanotubes focus, and the alternating electrical area was preferable for making a percolation construction within the materials.
