Abstract Suspensions of carbon nanotubes (CN) in different solvents were prepared. The plasticized polyvinylchloride (PVC) films modified by using multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCN) and fullerenes were prepared. Light-thermo deterioration of the modified film samples was car-ried out. The influence of modifiers on mechanical properties of PVC films is discussed.
