    Abstract:

    Carbon nanotubes and graphene are an almost perfect molecule with truly amazing combinations of thermal electrical and structural properties. In order to achieve their full potential, they need to be fully integrated in all sorts of matrices. Full integration requires their development beyond conventional composites so that the level of the non-nano material is designed to fully integrate with the amount of nanotubes and graphene. Here, the nano materials are part of the matrix rather than a differing component, as in the case of conventional composites. In order to advance the development of multifunctional materials integrating nanotubes and graphene, this research is focused on the simultaneous control of the nanoarchitecture, structural, thermal and electrical properties of fully integrated hybrid materials. These are hybrid materials systems designed to surpass the limits of rule of mixtures engineering and composite design. The goals are to implement multifunctional designs to fully mimic the properties of carbon nanotubes and grapheme on larger scales for enhanced thermal and electrical management in addition to the control of other properties such as strength and toughness. These new approaches involve exfoliation, functionalization, dispersion, stabilization, alignment, polymerization, reaction bonding and coating in order to achieve full integration. Typical examples of structural applications of polymeric and ceramic matrices and applications in energy systems, such as capacitors and batteries as well as other material systems, are presented and discussed.
