Processing of polyurethane/carbon nanotubes composites using novel minimixer

Author(s): , , , , , , ,

Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) was used to functionalize multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) by grafting to produce MWNT-g-PTMEG. These functionalized nanotubes were then dispersed in thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) to form a ...
