Surface modification of carbon nanoballs (CNBs) using a plasma in liquid phase (solution plasma) and preparation of CNB/polyamide 6 (PA6) nanocomposite were demonstrated. Reactive species such as OH radical and H2O 2 generated from solution plasma oxidized the surface of CNBs and changed into hydrophilic. Mechanical properties (modulus of elasticity in tension and flexural modulus, especially impact strength) of hydrophilic CNB/PA6 composite were improved as compared to PA6 and untreated CNB/PA6 composite. CNBs with hydrophilic surface modified by solution plasma were well-dispersed into PA6 matrix.
