Strategies for scanning electron microscopy sample preparation and characterization of multiwall carbon nanotube polymer composites

Published

Author(s)

Andras Vladar

Abstract

This guideline presents methods for the preparation and investigation of samples of multiwall carbon nanotube-polymer composites by scanning electron microscopy. It is focused on multiwall carbon nanotube epoxy composite, but the strategy should be generally applicable to other types of polymer nanocomposite materials.
