ABSTRACT

The specific electrical conductivity (σ) of mechanical mixture consisting of particles LaNi5 and multi-walled carbon nanotubes was studied under compression. Founded that the conductivity of mechanical mixture with micro particles LaNi5 (diameter 28 ± 6 mkm) and 51 wt. % CNT is executed to the order of magnitude σ of CNT. Growth mechanism of specific electrical conductivity of mechanical mixture LaNi5 with CNTs is due the process of ordering and the transfer electrons from the metal to CNTs. At this concentration, the mechanism of electron transfer from the metal particles to the CNT is most optimal.
