Abstract

This article describes the various pure forms of carbon matrices and the corresponding methods used to create them or incorporate them into a matrix of a composite. The forms include graphite, diamond, fullerenes, and nanotubes. The article discusses the three types of liquid precursors, namely, thermoplastic, thermosetting, and evaporative or solvent carriers. It provides a description of the advantages and limitations of various methods involved in chemical vapor infiltration. The article concludes with a discussion on the matrix contribution to composite properties.
