To understand, at least roughly, the differences observed in the thermal conduction behavior, we can consider that the inner surfaces of entangled 1-D tubular MWCNTs may not be easily wetted by the epoxy resin adversely affecting the interfacial contact of the filler with the organic matrix resulting in a high thermal boundary resistance between CNTs filler and matrix material, that is a high value of Kapitza resistance ([R.sub.k]).
