Water‐Based Single‐Walled‐Nanotube‐Filled Polymer Composite with an Exceptionally Low Percolation Threshold Academic Article uri icon


  • An emulsion polymer was used as the polymer matrix starting material in order to lower the percolation threshold of single-walled-carbon-nanotube (SWNT)-filled polymer composites. A percolation threshold below 0.04 wt.-% SWNT was achieved. This composite system offers the potential for conductive polymers that are relatively inexpensive, mechanically robust, environmentally stable, and easy to process.
