Ceramic composites

Silicon glass rods are used as additives to reinforce inorganic ceramics. They are synthesized by using surfactant carbon nanotube co-micelles as templates. They show 100% enhancement on hardness in the presence of 6 wt % of CNTs. Unlike carbon fibers, the as-prepared CNTs tend to form bundles due to van der Waals forces, and there is still no good way to separate them individually. Use of a surfactant as a processing aid improves the dispersion of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in epoxy resin, leading to a significant improvementof mechanical properties.
