The technological and industrial needs for the development of high-strength bulk materials have led to the incorporation of CNTs into the metal matrices. CNTs benefit from superior load-bearing capacity and can be applied for strengthening the metallic systems, provided that some requirements are met: (1) They should be uniformly dispersed in the metallic matrix; (2) The interfacial adhesion at the CNT/metal interfaces should be strong as a need for the favorable load-bearing; (3) No unwanted phase transformation occurs between CNTs and metallic matrices, and (4) The condensation method should not impose the mechanical and thermal damages on CNTs. These challenges are widely observed in the industrial processes, needing appropriate and practical solutions. This review deals with the aforementioned challenges and the suggested solutions for them. View this paper
