Functionalized graphene sheets (FGSs) are shown to be multifunctional nanofillers for several types of elastomers. FGS simultaneously improves mechanical properties, reduces gas permeation, and imparts electrical conductivity. This combination of property improvements is unavailable in any other filler, including carbon black and nanoclay. The improvements in mechanical properties are shown to be due to the unique shape of FGS, with its high aspect ratio and crumpled morphology.
