Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Nanocomposites are the new class of composite materials like polymer based nanocompositespresent new class of composites materials such as particle filled polymers in which at least one dimensions of the dispersed particles lies in the nano-range. Now a days most frequently used nano fillers is carbon nanotube, either multiwall or single walled. The discoveries of carbon nanotubes (CNT) have initiated researches in many different areas and in which one of the most fascinating applications of CNT is the polymer/CNT nanocomposites. High surface area of the nanotube increases the adhesion between the dispersed fillers and the matrix to obtain high performance resulting composites.Carbon Nanotube CNTs have attracted too much interest as new nanomaterials due to their unique shape and properties such as superconductivity, light weight, high stiffness and axial strength. Because of their high mechanical strength CNTs are being considered as nano-scale fibers to enhance the performance of polymer nanocomposite materials. High mechanical, electrical and thermal property of CNTs make them ideal candidate as fillers in light weight polymer composite. Due to CNTs unusual properties they can be used in the electronic device manufacturing, electrode materials preparations and reinforcement of various composites. Nanocomposites reinforced with carbon nanotubes having extraordinary specific stiffness and strength which represent various opportunity for application in the 21st century. In this paper preparation of nano-tubes, characterization and their applications have been included.
