Abstract

We characterize the electric properties of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) dispersed in the polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) composites. In the melt-blended sample, the SWNTs – originally semiconducting – became predominantly metallic. The interaction of the PMMA and SWNT is investigated by the polarized Raman studies. The structure changes in the PMMA and SWNT shows that the anisotropic interactions play important role in SWNT electronic density of states (DOS) changes. The increased metallic SWNT percentage is confirmed by the conductivity and dielectric constant measurements of composite and neat PMMA.
