2010 (English)In: AIP Conference Proceedings / [ed] A. D'Amore, Domenico Acierino and Luigi Grassia, American Institute of Physics , 2010, Vol. 1255, no 1, 145-147 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The thermal conductivity, κ, of nylon-6 increased 22% whereas the heat capacity per unit volume, ρcp, decreased 10% by adding 2.1 wt% Multi-Wall Carbon Nanotubes MWCNTs. Simultaneously, the glass transition temperature, Tg, which was detected as a weak sigmoidal increase in ρcp and a decrease in dκ/dT, increased 11 K. These results show that the MWCNTs-nylon-6 interaction restricts the segmental mobility of nylon-6 and decreases cp of nylon-6.
