Abstract: An interfacial reaction during melt mixing of maleic anhydride copolymer (SMA) encapsulated single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) and polyamide 6 (PA6) was used in order to disperse SWNT homogeneously and to enhance interfacial adhesion. The intended reactive coupling between PA6 and SMA was evident from IR spectroscopy. Nanocomposites with SMA encapsulated SWNT showed increased elongation at break as compared to PA6/SWNT composites. SEM investigation of tensile fractured surfaces of PA6/SWNT+SMA composites indicated enhanced interfacial adhesion between PA6 and SMA modified SWNT.
