About This Book

From the Foreword, written by legendary nano pioneer M. Meyyappan, Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California, USA:

"…there is critical need for a book to summarize the status of the field but more importantly to lay out the principles behind the technology. This is what Professor Arvind Agarwal and his co-workers … have done here."

Carbon Nanotubes: Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites reflects the authors' desire to share the benefits of nanotechnology with the masses by developing metal matrix carbon nanotube (MM-CNT) composites for large-scale applications. Multiwall carbon nanotubes can now be produced on a large scale and at a significantly reduced cost. The book explores potential applications and applies the author's own research to highlight critical developmental issues for different MM-CNT composites—and then outline novel solutions.

With this problem-solving approach, the book explores:

  • Advantages, limitations, and the evolution of processing techniques used for MM-CNT composites


  • Characterization techniques unique to the study of MM-CNT composites—and the limitations of these methods


  • Existing research on different MM-CNT composites, presented in useful tables that include composition, processing method, quality of CNT dispersion, and properties


  • The micro-mechanical strengthening that results from adding CNT


  • The applicability of micro-mechanics models in MM-CNT composites


  • Significance of chemical stability for carbon nanotubes in the metal matrix as a function of processing, and its impact on CNT/metal interface and mechanical properties


  • Computational studies that have not been sufficiently covered although they are essential to research and development


  • The critical issue of CNT dispersion in the metal matrix, as well as a unique way to quantify CNT distribution and subsequently improve control of the processing parameters for obtaining improved properties


Carbon Nanotubes: Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites paints a vivid picture of scientific and application achievements in this field. Exploring the mechanisms through which CNTs are enhancing the properties of different metal-based composites, the authors provide a roadmap to help researchers develop MM-CNT composites and choose potential materials for use in emerging areas of technology.
