Abstract: This work is devoted to the study of the effect of carbon nanotubes functionalization on the electrical conductivity of composite materials based on them. Carbon nanotubes were functionalized by treatment in nitric acid and isopropyl alcohol. Changes in the morphology of multi-walled carbon nanotubes during liquid-phase functionalization were investigated using Auger-electron microscopy. Samples of composite material on the basis of initial and functionalized carbon nanotubes and epoxy resin were prepared and the concentration dependence of electrical conductivity using the four-probe method was studied. The study reveals the effect of functionalization in various solutions on the electrophysical properties of the obtained carbon nanotubes/epoxy composites.
