Carboxylated Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT-COOH) were functionalized using different types of amines as modifier agents to improve the compatibility with the epoxy matrix. Covalent attachment was proved by XPS and Raman spectroscopy. TGA showed that only long chain modifier agents improved the thermal stability of modified SWNTs. Epoxy-based composites were synthesized using diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) as polymer matrix and modified SWNTs as reinforcing agent.doi:10.1515/nano.0013.00062 fatcat:xbk2xzyk4reatghdrsab6qh2yy
