Fabrication of lignin-wrapped carbon nanotubes and its dispersion in ABS resin

Ge, Xianxun and Qiu, Jiahao and Xu, Shasha and Yue, Feng and Song, Pingan (2012) Fabrication of lignin-wrapped carbon nanotubes and its dispersion in ABS resin. Advanced Materials Research, 455-456. pp. 87-90. ISSN 1022-6680

Abstract

In the presented work, the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were successfully wrapped with alkli lignin. Both transmission electron microscope (TEM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations show that the CNTs are coated with a layer of lignin, which is also verified by Raman spectra. SEM images demonstrate that lignin-wrapped CNTs (lignin-w-CNTs) can more uniformly dispersed in ABS matrix relative to pristine CNTs. Moreover, compared with CNTs and lignin, incorporating lignin-w-CNTs results in slightly higher tensile stress at the same loading level.
