Synthesis and characterization of MWCNTs/PVDF nanocomposite and its electrical studies

Author(s): F. Mary Anjalin

We report the electrical studies of nanocomposites of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTs) and Poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF).The MWCNTs were synthesized by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) method. Solvent evaporation method is used to prepare MWCNT-PVDF composite films. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) were used to study structure and morphology of the composites. The temperature dependant conductivity measurements for the nanocomposites were performedusing the well established four probe method.
