Due to their nanometer-scale dimensions, high mechanical strength, and very high thermal and electrical conductivity, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted much attention to be recognized as an excellent material choice for nanocomposites, in which even a very small amount of CNTs can induce significant changes in the material’s properties [1, 2, 3, 4].
Since carbon and carbon–carbon composites have many advantages, such as excellent mechanical behavior at high temperatures, low reactivity, high heat capacity, and so on, modern advanced technologies make wide use of these materials in different fields, including nuclear reactor walls, rocket nozzles, battery electrodes, and seal and friction materials [5, 6, 7]. However, the conventional techniques to prepare carbon and carbon–carbon composites are complicated and costly due to the time-consuming process, such as liquid phase impregnation and chemical vapor deposition which are indispensable to obtain high-performance carbon and...
