Thermal conductivity and dynamic mechanical property of glycidyl methacrylate-grafted multiwalled carbon nanotube/epoxy composites 

The purpose of this this study was to graft polymer chains onto the surface of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to examine the morphology and thermal properties of the epoxy composites in comparison to multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the nanocomposites using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that the addition of Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) to the MWCNTs/epoxy composites significantly enhanced thermal ...

Synergetic effect of thermal conductive properties of epoxy composites containing functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes and aluminum nitride

This study looked at the use of two different fillers to improve the thermal properties of an epoxy resin. The two fillers were multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and aluminum nitride (AlN). Through the use of poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) and a zirconate coupling agent the MWCNTs and AlN particles respectively were added to the epoxy resin. Through the use of 1 vol.% MWCNT and 25 vol.% AlN the researchers were able to ...

Effective surface treatments for enhancing the thermal conductivity of BN-filled epoxy composite

The purpose of this research was to improve the thermal conductivity of boron-nitride filled epoxy composites. To complete this task, the interfacial adhesion in the composite needed to be improved. This was achieved by employing admicellar polymerization to coat the polystyrene and polymethyl methacrylate, on the boron nitride surface. The results indicated an increase in the thermal conductivity of the composite from 1.5 W/mK, with the use of untreated boron-nitride, ...
