Abstract

Carbon nanotubes were promising additives to polymeric material to the potential for their enhancement of the electrical, optical and thermal properties of the resulting nanocomposites. The improvement in the properties were by no means guaranteed and the results are often sensitive to the particular polymer chosen, also to the quantity and quality of CNTs used in nanocomposites. Poly [2-methoxy, 5ethyl (2'hexyloxy) paraphenylenevinylene]/Carbon nanotubes (MEH-PPV/CNTs) nanocomposites with different contents have been prepared successfully by Spray Pyrolysis System by using Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) induced by ferrocene, Fe(C5H5)2 catalyst precursor. In this paper, palm oil were used as a carbon source and MEH-PPV solution as a conjugated polymer source. MEH-PPV/CNTs were characterized by Thermogravimetric Anaysis (TGA), Ultraviolet-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis) and I-V characterizer and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM).
