In this lab, different concentrations of carbon nanotubes were mixed with epoxy to createnanocomposites. The nanocomposites were subjected to a Vickers hardness test, a three- point bend test and an electrical conductivity test. Data from the tests was used todetermine properties such as ultimate tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, Vickershardness and electrical conductivity. The experimental values were then compared to“book” values for nanotubes and for epoxy. The nanocomposite’s properties were foundto be closer to those of epoxy. After fracture, the specimen were viewed under a scanningelectron microscope to determine the nature of the bonding between the nanotubes andthe epoxy. The nanotubes were found to clump together and did not mix homogeneouslywith the epoxy. Nanocomposites are particulate composites with carbon nanotubes as the reinforcement phase and a polymer (epoxy) as the matrix phase. Carbon nanotubes are sheets of graphene that have been curled or coiled up. They exists as single sheets of graphene andare called single walled nanotubes (SWNT) or exist as multiple sheets of graphene andare called multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT). The nanocomposites fabricated in the labcontained MWNTs.Data from the experiment and analysis led to a threshold hypothesis which postulatedupper and lower thresholds in the concentrations of the nanocomposite beyond which thenanotube dominates or the epoxy dominates. The hypothesis was used to explain themechanical properties and the electrical properties to a certain extent. The wide scatter of experimental data for the electrical properties was the primary reason why the hypothesiscould not be used to explain the electrical properties.This paper introduces the fabrication methods and the testing methods employed on thenanocomposites and presents results of their mechanical and electrical properties. Adiscussion on trends in the properties and comparison with “book” values is also presented. Future recommendations are also presented.
