|Abstract:||Polypropylene-based nanocomposites filled with polypropylene-grafted multiwalled carbon nanotubes (PP-g-MWNT) were compared to PP samples filled with pristine MWNT. The effect of such additives on the structure and morphology of the polymer matrix was studied by small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), wide angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD), polarized light optical microscopy (PLOM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). PP-g-MWNT allowed a more efficient and unhindered crystallization at a lamellar level, while MWNT disrupted the order of lamellar stacks, probably because of their tendency to aggregate. A common trend of tensile properties and lamellar morphology as a function of filler content was noted in the series filled with functionalized carbon nanotubes. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
