Thermal properties characterizations for carbon nanotubes (CNTs), carboxyl group-functionalized carbon nanotubes (FCNT), and graphite were presented in the paper. TGA/DSC and TEM techniques were used for characterization. The features of TGA characteristics transformation for synthesized carbon nanomaterials were investigated. The specific heat capacities of the samples at a constant pressure increased as the temperature increased.
