Abstract

The outstanding properties of CNTs have instigated incorporation of CNT as filler material in various metals and polymer material. The blend of carbon material with other metals/polymers is better known as carbon nanocomposites. Significant enhancement can be brought about in the already existing properties of metals and polymers by this process. This chapter discusses the methods for synthesis of such unique nanocomposite structures. The various aspects of how and where these structures can be applied with enhanced properties are also discussed with evidences from published literatures.

Keywords:
