To correlate conductivity with rheological properties of carbon nanofiber (CNF) based nanocomposites, two different types of CNFs were incorporated a polypropylene matrix. Electrically, the two composites exhibited different responses: nonconducting and conducting as a function of volume fraction concentration. A large difference in the rheological behavior of both composites has been measured. Furthermore, after comparing electrical conductivity and rheological properties, it is concluded that G′/G″ is the most appropriate rheological parameter for comparing with electrical behavior.
