As the mechanical properties of the polymer composites are influenced by their morphology and crystallization behavior [7] and the incorporation of the CNT plays a significant role in that, it is very instructive to characterize the crystallization and melting behavior of the CNT-reinforced polymer nanocomposites, both for optimizing the processing conditions and for realizing full potential applications of the CNT.
The CNT acquisition further strengthens McDATA's Global Enterprise Data Infrastructure initiative, meeting customers' and partners' growing requirements for information lifecycle management, utility computing and on-demand access to information.
