Broad Insight into the Potential Applications of Carbon Nanotubes with Metals and Ceramic Materials as a Matrix

Published on June 23, 2009 at 6:54 AM

Research and Markets, leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Composites: Metal and Ceramic Matrices" to their offering.

Carbon nanotube (CNT) was first discovered and reported in 1991. Since then, some efforts have been made to acquire its function as a reinforcing agent in ceramic matrix composites (CMC) and metal matrix composites (MMC). CNT was found to have outstanding elastic modulus and plasticity. So far, it is difficult to visualize the entire picture of this subject without going through a huge literature survey of articles. It is therefore high time that all information on this topic be organized in a single book to provide a comprehensive view of it.

Providing a broad insight into the potential applications of carbon nanotubes with metals and ceramic materials as a matrix, this book focuses on the preparation and the microstructural, physical, and mechanical characterizations of such novel nanocomposites. It features information on current synthesis and structure-property-relationships of metals and ceramics reinforced with CNT, organizing the vast array of surveys scattered throughout the literature in a single monograph. With its laboratory protocols and data tables this is invaluable reading for research workers and academics, as well as for applied scientists and industry personnel.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Introduction
  • Carbon nanotube -metal nanocomposites
  • Physical Properties of CNT-metal nanocomposites
  • Mechanical characteristics of CNT-metal nanocomposites
  • Carbon nanotube-ceramic nanocomposites
  • Physical Properties of CNT-ceramic nanocomposites
