Annotation In this work is considered the possibility of creating new polymeric composite materials based on complex esters of methacrylic acid by reinforcing them with carbon nanotubes. Theoretical calculations are done: interaction of the main components of the polymeric material with a single-layer carbon nanotubes. The presence of good connection of polymer matrix with reinforcing nanotubes is proved. The influence of carbon nanotubes on the conductivity of the considered composite polymer materials is studied. The calculations are performed using DFT method within the model of molecular cluster.
