Paper Abstract

Polyaromatic compounds, with terminal functional groups, can be non-covalently bonded to the sidewall of carbon nanotubes. This architecture preserves the structural, mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical properties of the CNTs and ensures that an unhindered functional group is available to bond with an extended polymer matrix. Spectroscopic measurements and high resolution imaging are used to confirm the functionalization and incorporation of functionalized MWNTs into a nylon 12 matrix.
