Abstract

It is shown that the melt viscosity of polymer/carbon nanotube nanocomposites can be described in terms of a model in which the ring-shaped structures of nanotubes are modeled as macromolecular coils and the polymer matrix is modeled as a solvent. The good agreement between the theoretical and experimental data allows us to suppose that such nanocomposites are a structural analog of branched polymer chains in a semidilute solution.
