Simulation of carbon nanotubes ring-like formations as macromolecular coils was
performed within the frameworks of fractal physical chemistry of polymer solutions. The
dependence of interfacial adhesion level has been shown in nanocomposites polymer/carbon
nanotubes on the indicated formations structure, characterized by its fractal dimension. This
treatment correctness was confirmed by nanocomposites reinforcement degree description
within the framework of reinforcement molecular theory.
Keywords: nanocomposite; epoxy polymer; ring-like formation; interfacial adhesion; fractal dimension.
