In particular, shape parameters such as particle convexity and circularity are shown to be important in differentiating primary particles and agglomerates.
The reason why the MWNT is prone to be dispersed in the core may be that MWNT exhibits agglomerate phenomenon and poor interfacial adhesion, and its fluidity is not fine in the composite.
In general, aggregates and agglomerates have lower circularity than primary particles, and can be distinguished from them on this basis.
