The microstructure and ultimate properties of polyamide-11 (PA-11) can be influenced by the presence of nanoparticles as well as uniaxial drawing. Here, a solution crystallization technique is used to generate different types of morphologies encapsulating carbon nanotubes and nanofibers. Upon crystallization from dilute solutions, PA-11 crystallizes on the surfaces of the carbon nanotubes and nanofibers, resulting in nano-hybrid shish-kebab morphology. Significant changes in microstructures and mechanical properties of PA-11 nanocomposites films are achieved upon uniaxial drawing.
