In this study, electrical wire explosion has been used to produce aluminum carbon nanotube (Al-CNT) nanocomposite particles in acetone medium. In order to synthesize Al-CNT nanocomposites, initially, CNTs were ultrasonically dispersed. Then, aluminum wire was exploded in this medium. Synthesized samples were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) methods. The results exhibited formation of spherical nanoparticles in the medium. The average diameter of nanoparticles was 4 nm. Moreover, attained nanoparticles remained stable in acetone. Results revealed a good interaction between aluminum nanoparticles and CNTs in this medium. It is concluded that acetone is a suitable medium for synthesizing Al-CNT nanocomposite as appropriate dispersion of Al-CNT nanoparticles can be achieved in this medium.
