Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been extensively studied over the last two decades because of their excellent properties. In particular, they have been considered as promising reinforcements for development of novel ceramic composites (CCs). In this paper, current researches on CNT-reinforced CCs are briefly highlighted and reviewed. CNT-reinforced CCs possess remarkable electrical and thermal properties as well as superior mechanical properties compared to conventional CCs without using CNTs.
