A report on the enhancement of thermal and electrical properties of carbon nanotube (CNT) polymer composites by magnetic field processing was presented. The cooperative alignment of nanotubes in the host-polymer system was the main reason for the enhancement of electric and thermal conductivities. It was suggested that the electrical transport properties of the composites are influenced by the hopping conduction with localization lengths comparable to bundle diameters.
