Abstract

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is one of the popular members in fullerene family that offer unique combinations of superlative chemical and physical properties. This presentation will look into how a simple chemical manipulation at nano-scale of a superlative chicken wire structure of CNTs can be exploited for improved production economics in the development of subsea engineering products used for oil/ gas applications. Substituting advanced polymers and micro-composites with nanofilled reinforced polymer composites would not just bring major economical benefits but would also significantly uplift the mechanical performance of the products. However, there are several key challenges prior to this forthcoming substitution. The research team at Northumbria University, UK are in collaboration with the leading subsea product producers and Universities of Europe and USA. Highlights of this collaboration will be summarized during the presentation as well.
