Abstract/Description: Structural foams reinforced with carbon nanotubes could prove to be beneficial in numerous industrial applications. High internal phase emulsion foams are emerging as new and important forms of microcellular foams. Microcellular foams, foams with a pores size of 0.1-10 μm, have numerous advantages, such as high impact strength. The dispersal of carbon nanofibers, as wall pore reinforcements, within microcellular foams promises to enhance the foams' mechanical properties. This research has developed a novel method for creating such foam.
