A critical review on nanotube and nanotube / nanoclay related polymer composite materials

  title={A critical review on nanotube and nanotube / nanoclay related polymer composite materials},
  author={Kin-tak Lau and Chong Gu and David Hui},
Since the last decade, research activities in the area of nano-materials have been increased dramatically. More than a 1000 of journal articles in this area have been published within the last 3 years. Materials scientists and researchers have realized that the mechanical properties of materials can be altered at the fundamental level, i.e. the atomic-scale. Carbon nanotubes (hereafter called ‘nanotubes’) have been well recognized as nanostructural materials that can be used to alter mechanical… CONTINUE READING
