The incorporation of pristine MWNTs to PB led to an improvement in stiffness, but not in strength, ductility, and toughness. In comparison, PP-g- MWNTs were able to improve the stiffness, strength, and toughness of PB significantly, without compromising the ductility. The mechanical properties of PB improved with increasing amount of PP-g-MWNTs up to an effective MWNT content of 1.5 wt%. Further increase in the effective MWNT content led to a downturn in mechanical properties due to the existence of MWNTs bundles as observed by microscopy. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Applied Polymer Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/52706||ISSN:||00218995||DOI:||10.1002/app.30056|
