Modeling of Carbon Nanotubes (Nanofibers) as Macromolecular Coils

Condensed-State Physics

Modeling of carbon nanotubes (nanofibers) in polymer nanocomposites as macromolecular coils is performed. This approach offers an estimation of the real degree of anisotropy of these nanofillers and allows predicting the properties of the resulting nanocomposites. An important role of the nanofiller – polymer matrix interface is demonstrated.
