Danny Vennerberg, Rafael Quirino and Michael R. Kessler A Novel Microwave-Assisted Carbothermic Route for the Production of Copper-Carbon Nanotube Metal Matrix Composites Directly from Copper Oxide Advanced Engineering Materials 15
A new method of producing multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT)-reinforced metal matrix composites (MMCs) directly from metal oxides is developed in this study. Using Cu2O as a test case, Cu-MWCNT composites with high hardness and MWCNT loading are obtained by microwave irradiation of a mixture of carbon nanotubes and metal oxide in an inert atmosphere. This approach provides a promising and versatile route for the fabrication of MWCNT reinforced MMCs.
