Abstract
The copper coating process on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) has been carried out by electroless plating method to improve interfacial bonding between MWCNT and alumininium matrix. The initial step of electroless plating is to pre-treat MWCNT which includes oxidation (hydrophilic treatment), sensitization and activation. The oxidation process uses a solution of sulfuric acid and nitric acid, sensitization is carried out using tin (II) chloride dihydrate with hydrochloric acid, while the oxidation process uses a solution of palladium (II) chloride with hydrochloric acid. MWCNT which has been activated, is immersed in an electroless plating bath containing chemicals such as; Copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate, Potassium sodium tartrate tetrahydrate, Nickel (II) Chloride Hexahydrate, Polyethylene glycol 6000 and stirred with a magnetic stirrer at 200 rpm temperature of 25 oC. Deposition time is varied, ie 15, 30 and 60 minutes.
