Paper Abstract

Electrospun polymer-MWCNTs fibers were prepared using a precursor solution that consists of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), Poly(dymethylsiloxane) and Poly(methylmethacrylate) in Tetrahydrofuran (THF) and Dimethylformamide (DMF). Before adding them into the precursor, the MWCNTs were dispersed in Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) and water. We report evidence of UV photo-conduction and photo-actuation in electrospun PDMS/PMMA-CNT composite fibers.
