Smithers Rapra Publishing announces the release of "Carbon Nanotube Based Composites", a new textbook about the properties and applications of CNT-based materials.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have amazing properties and a key way to take advantage of this is by incorporating nanotubes into a matrix to build composite materials. The best candidates for this task are undoubtedly polymers. Almost every characteristic of a polymer can be significantly enhanced by adding carbon nanotubes and as a result, new potential applications of carbon nanotube enhanced polymer composites are discovered every day. However, before carbon nanotube enhanced polymer composites become commonplace there are some tough challenges that need to be overcome.
This book reviews the status of worldwide research in both single-walled and multi-walled carbon nanotube based composites. It serves as a practical guide on carbon nanotube based composites and a reference to students and researchers from the academia and industry.
Carbon Nanotube Based Composites is available from retailers or from Publications Sales, Smithers Rapra, Shawbury, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY4 4NR, United Kingdom.
