Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Composites Metal and Ceramic by Sie Chin Tjong

By Sie Chin Tjong

Supplying a vast perception into the capability purposes of carbon nanotubes with metals and ceramic fabrics as a matrix, this booklet makes a speciality of the coaching and the microstructural, actual, and mechanical characterizations of such novel nanocomposites. It gains info on present synthesis and structure-property-relationships of metals and ceramics strengthened with CNT, organizing the giant array of surveys scattered through the literature in one monograph. With its laboratory protocols and information tables this is often worthwhile interpreting for learn staff and teachers, in addition to for utilized scientists and team of workers.

The asymmetry is due to the presence of different crystalline species [120, 126]. Ultraviolet-visible-near infrared (UV-vis-NIR) spectroscopy can provide quantitative analysis of the SWNT purity by characterizing their electronic band structures. Because of the one-dimensional structure of SWNTs, the electronic density of state displays several spikes. Accordingly, SWNTs exhibit characteristic electronic transitions associated with Van Hove singularities in the density of states [127]. Semiconducting SWNTs display their first interband transition at S11 and second transition at S22, whereas metallic SWNTs show their first transition at M11.

Copyright Ó (2004) Elsevier. 1 Theoretical Modeling The sp2 carbon–carbon bond of the basal plane of graphite is considered to be one of the strongest in solid materials. Thus, a rolled-up CNT in which all the basal planes run parallel to the tube axis is expected to yield exceptionally high stiff and strong mechanical properties.
