Abstract

A multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWNT) was mixed with phenol resin and consolidated by the spark plasma system (SPS). Properties of the MWNT consolidated at 1200°C at 120 MPa were as follows: bulk density was 1.74 g/cm3; apparent porosity was 16.3%; Young's modulus was 11.1 GPa. Hydroxyapatite was coated on the consolidated MWNT at 1000°C and 120 MPa by SPS, using the suspension prepared from 6 moles of CaHPO 4·2H2O and 4 moles of Ca(OH)2.
