ResumenWe here present an effective strategy to prepare enhanced composites using poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT). It contains two essential steps. First, the elaboration of homogeneous aqueous MWCNT dispersions and the selection of the most effective dispersing agent. In a sequential dispersion protocol for seven common dispersants, including surfactants and polymers, the dispersion quality and dispersion ability, independent of the intrinsic nature of the dispersing agent were established using zeta-potential and UV-Vis-spectroscopy. Second, the combination of the most effective dispersing agent, namely dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS) with a polymer dispersant of high affinity towards the PVA matrix, namely polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). This resulted in homogeneous PVA-MWCNT composites with significantly improved glass transition temperature by up to 12 ºC as a function of the sequential order of dispersant addition. The presented dispersion strategy is straightforward and thus may provide a fast, reliable and general guide for fabricating nanotube composites with improved performance.
