An interphase between carbon fiber and epoxy matrix was introduced to increase impact strength of carbon fiber reinforced composites (CFRC) without sacrificing the interlaminar shear strength. Flexible polymers, I. e., MVEMA (poly(methyl vinyl ether-co-maleic anhydride)) and EMA(poly(ethylene-co-maleic anhydride)), which have reactive functional groups were considered as interphase materials. Weight hain of MVEMA and EMA onto the surface of carbon fibers was evaluated by changing the parameters of electrodeposition process. Electrodeposition mechanism of polymers which have anhydride functional group was identified by IR spectroscopy, that is, the generation of $RCOO^-$ functional group by the attack of hydroxide anion in the basic solution was observed. The weight gain was increased by increasing concentration of polymers, current density, and electrodeposition time. However the excess generation of oxygen gas decreased the weight gain by removing the deposited polymers. Washing in the running water easily removed the deposited polymers which are on the fiber surface without bonding, as a results, only 0.5 wt% of deposited polymers are remained.
