Thermostable Natural Rubber with Cellular Structure Using Thin Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes



original image

Mechanically strong yet flexible natural rubber, thermally stable at 120 °C, is fabricated by a simple approach. Thin multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are found to form a continuous, three-dimensional cellular structure, the result of strong interfacial bonding between the MWNTs and the rubber molecules.
