Non-standart properties of carbon nanomaterials and nanostructures open wide possibilities of their application. The electrical resistance of bulk arrays of carbon nanotubes in cyclic loading-unloading processes was studied. It is shown that when the volume of the powder sample decreases, the resistance first decreases sharply, and at a certain degree of compression the process of its chang e begins to occur more smoothly, which is associated with increased contacts between neighboring nanostructures and van der Waals bond between them.
