Multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT,s) has been modified with polycarbosilane to improve the dispersion in the polymer matrix. PEEK/PEI (50-50) blend have been chosen because this optimized composition can be used as matrix for composite applications. PEEK/PEI (50-50) blend has been prepared by the melt blending and see the effect of polycarbosilane coated MWCNT,s on miscibility behavior of PEEK/PEI blend. Various sophisticated analytical techniques have been used to characterize the blends. From X-ray-diffraction studies, the crystalline structure of the blend has been determined. The thermal behavior of the composite has been studied by thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA).TGA thermogram has shown an increase in the decomposition temperature of PEEK/PEI blends at the higher loading of polycarbosilane coated MWCNT,s. From SEM studies, it has been demonstrated that with the increase of loading of polycarbosilane coated MWCNTs, the increase of adhesion between matrix and disperse phase of PEEK/PEI blends.
