Cover Picture: Extreme-Performance Rubber Nanocomposites for and Probing Excavating Deep Oil Resources Using Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (Adv. Funct. Mater. 21/2008)
The development of a super rubber sealant, able to withstand temperatures up to 260°C and pressures as high as 239 MPa, through incorporation of surface-controlled multi-walled carbon nanotubes into fluorine rubber is described by Morinobu Endo et al. on page 3403. This novel rubber nanocomposite-derived O-ring with cellulation structure exhibits a balanced pressure resistance, sealing ability, thermal resistance, and durability for probing and excavating deep oil resources, and will contribute as an innovative material to enhanced oil recovery for energy sustainability.
