Crystal Ordering of Isotactic Polypropylene and Carbon Nanotube Composites Under Shear Stress

Judith, Robert Michael

CNT/iPP nanocomposites were made from solution of iPP/MWCNT in p-Xylene, at nanotube concentrations of 0.01%, 0.1%, 1.0%, 2.0%, and 5.0%, MWCNT by weight, and then dried to form a powder. The powder was then compression molded into a film. The CNT/iPP composite films were then melted in a Linkham shearing stage, and sheared at 1600C at 1 Hz for 2 seconds. Polarized optical microscopy (POM) shows... read more
