Abstract: Thermal conductivity measurements of the same samples were carried out using the TPS method. Thermal testing on carbon nanotubes to study for promising fillers.  Thermal conductivity of single-walled carbon nanotubes should enable a further reduction in the filler content required for a given enhancement in the composite properties. For the multi-walled carbon nanotube thermal conductivity increased modestly using this method whereas for the single-walled carbon nanotubes the thermal conductivity was lower than pure epoxy.
