Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) nanocomposites with various contents (0-5 wt.%) of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are investigated. PET/MWCNTs nanocomposites have been obtained by using melt compounding. Attention has been paid on the characterization of thermoelectrical, thermophysical, electrical and mechanical properties of the manufactured PET/MWCNT nanocomposites by using thermoelectric analyzer, laser flash method, broadband dielecetric spectroscopy and dynamic mechanical analysis, respectively. It has been determined that addition of MWCNTs positively affects thermoelectrical response of the material.
