Functionalized-CNT Polymer Composite for Microwave and Electromagnetic Shielding Academic Article uri icon


  • In this research work, we studied the microwave properties of multi-wall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) surface functionalized with metallic oxides composites. Three different concentrations (5%, 10%, and 20%) of metallic oxides were used, namely cobalt, iron, and cobalt ferrite. The surface-decorated CNTS were impregnated into polyurethane (PU) matrix. The surface-decorated MWCNTs and the MWCNTs-PU composites were characterized using electron microscopy. The dielectric properties of the samples are studied using an open-ended coaxial probe technique in a wide frequency range of (5–50 GHz). The metallic oxide-decorated surface MWCNTs-PU composites demonstrated different microwave-frequency absorption characteristics depending on the concentration of the metallic oxides.
