Abstract

Polymeric films based on polystyrene filled with multiwalled carbon nanotubes, either pristine, oxidized, or chemically (or adsorption) modified with vinyltriethoxysilane have been studied. An external magnetic field with different orientations of the force lines with respect to the film surface was applied to regulate the filler orientation within the polymer matrix during preparation. The effect of the nature of the filler surface layer on the electrophysical characteristics of the nanocomposites was investigated below the percolation point.
