A trend has been perceived in the field of composite materials to employ carbon nanotubes as reinforcement in synthesizing composites of unique properties. In this endeavor, free standing structures of Al2024-based nanostructured composite with multiwalled carbon nanotubes as second phase particles has been synthesized by stir casting technique. Scanning electron microscopy has been carried out to analyze the composite structure and to verify the retention of carbon nanotubes.
