The dispersion of multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT) was analyzed in a polymer matrix and the resulting thermal properties were discussed. Thermal properties of composites that were dispersed with various particles having different aspect ratios were also discussed. Thermal conductivities were increased significantly at a low loading content of nanotubes as low as 2 vol% in the case of well-dispersed MWNT/silicone composites. Carbon nanotube polymer composites exhibited the threshold more than 10 times as low as that of general conducting filler composites.
