Carbon nanotubes are used in thin-film electronics, coatings, actuators, water filters, automobile components, boat hulls, sporting goods, and electromagnetic shields.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) or buckytubes are the names for fullerenes that are shaped like tubes. CNTs can also be found as hollow cylinders packed with a variety of molecules in a hexagonal network of carbon atoms.
Armchair carbon nanotubes, zigzag carbon nanotubes, and chiral carbon nanotubes are the three different forms of CNTs. The way the graphite is “rolled up” throughout the production process determines how these different forms of carbon nanotubes are produced.

The Global Aluminum Carbon Nanotube market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
An aluminum-carbon nanotubes nanocomposite with doubled strength and preserved electrical conductivity.A Pure metals that are highly conductive typically experience a large drop in electrical conductivity when their mechanical strength is increased.
For instance, adding extra grain boundaries or phase/matrix interfaces are typical and efficient ways to strengthen metals. However, it also lessens the electrical conductivity at the interface by increasing electron scattering there.
Show that friction stir processing-prepared pure aluminum (Al)/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) nanocomposites have overcome these constraints. Al/CNT nanocomposites have comparable electrical conductivity to pure Al while having higher yield and tensile strengths than pure Al.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Raman spectroscopy were used to analyze and characterize the contact between CNTs and Al. At the interfaces between CNTs and Al, there were hardly any interfacial reaction chemicals and no discernible physical gaps.
It is what we defined as a spotless, strongly connected interface. The electrical conductivity of the nanocomposite has grown while the amount of phase interface has remained rather constant.
In the aluminum-carbon nanotube nanocomposite with doubled strength and retained electrical conductivity, the CNTs/Al interface is clean and securely bound.
