Abstract: A novel method of making water-based amorphous carbon nanotubes (ACNTs) for advanced polymer nanocomposites is presented. In this approach, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) is introduced onto the amorphous carbon nanotubes to improve the solubility in water and the dispersion in polyvinyl alcohol [PVA] matrix. As a result, the addition of 0.6 wt % ACNTs in the polymer resulted in the significant improvement (167.5 and 175.8%) in the tensile strength and modulus of the polymer, respectively. The improved mechanical property could be ascribed to the load transfer to the nanotubes in the composites.
