	%X The nanofiber sheet of Multiwall Cabon Nanotube
(MWCNTs)/Polyacylonitile (PAN) composites was fabricated from
electrospun nanofiber. Firstly the surface of MWCNTs was
chemically modified, comparing two different techniques consisting
of admicellar polymerization and functionalization to improve the
dispersion and prevent the aggregation in the PAN matrix. The
modified MWCNTs were characterized by the dispersion in
dimethylformamide (DMF) solvent, Laser particle size, and FTRaman.
Lastly, DSC, SEM and mechanical properties of the
nanofiber sheet were examined. The results show that the mechanical
properties of the nanofiber sheet prepared from admicellar
polymerization-modified MWCNTs were higher than those of the
others.
