                         impact and tribological properties could be used in the aerospace 
                         industry to replace metal for an aircraft skin and still provide 
                         effective shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI). 
                         Also, phenol-furfuryl alcohol resins (PFA) are excellent 
                         candidates to replace existing thermoset matrices used for 
                         obtaining glassy carbon, both in its pure form and reinforced with 
                         nanoscale structures. The synthesis of PFA allow obtaining a resin 
                         with better properties than that showed by conventional phenolic 
                         resins and with synthesis and cure processes more controlled than 
                         observed for the furfuryl alcohol resin. This work has as main 
                         purpose the synthesis and thermal characterization of PFA resin 
                         and its nanostructured composites with different concentrations of 
                         carbon nanotubes (0, 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 wt%). PFA resin was 
                         synthesized with 1:2:1 molar ratio of phenol/formaldehyde/furfuryl 
                         alcohol, according to the more appropriate condition obtained 
                         previously. The specimens were evaluated by thermogravimetry (TGA) 
                         to knowledge of the temperature of thermal degradation, either by 
                         actual analyses as simulated by simulation heating rate conversion 
                         software (known as Highway Simulation). The introduction of CNT in 
                         PFA sample does not affect its thermal stability. The values of 
                         residual weight found for samples with CNT additions are close to 
                         the values of the phenolic resin in the literature (about 60% 
                         residual weight).",
