In this paper, the influence of nano-graphite and nano-TiO 2 with the content of 0.5wt.% to 2wt.% on the thermal properties of polymerized cyclic butylene terephthalate (pCBT) resin was investigated by Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), respectively. The experiment results show that the degree of crystallinity of the material decreases with the increasing of nano-particles content. Furthermore, it is found that two melting peaks appearing during the
