Abstract

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have lately attracted remarkable attention as reinforcements of materials because of their exceptional mechanical and electronic properties. However, studies on the ceramic-CNT composite have been rarely reported. Alumina-CNT composites have been produced to investigate the effect of carbon nanotube addition on the mechanical and tribological properties by hot-pressing. The alumina-CNT composite powder was prepared by catalytic pyrolysis of acetylene gas with an iron nitrate impregnated alumina. The contents of iron nitrate were controlled from 0 to 0.5 mol.% to change the CNT compositions in the alumina-CNT composite. The microstructures and mechanical properties of hot-pressed composites have been investigated to explain the effect of the CNT compositions on the tribological properties of the alumina reinforced with CNT composites.
