Single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) are used to template a new PVA crystalline interphase structure in shear-flow gel/spun composite fibers. The presence of the highly crystalline interphase regions provides improved contact between PVA chains and SWNT and a better stress transfer. The fibers show superior properties with tensile strength, modulus, and toughness of 4.9 GPa, 128 GPa, and 202 J · g−1, respectively.
