Abstract

Acrylonitrile-butadiene rubbers (NBR) have been widely used in many industrial applications due to their very low cost and high performance. In this study, we focus on the fabrication of NBR/carbon nanotube (CNT) composites using surfactant dispersed super-growth SWNTs (SG-SWNTs) as the nanocarbon, and multi-walled carbon nanotubes for comparison. We found that the prepared NBR (15 wt %)/SG-SWNT composite showed a 10 S cm-1 conductance, which was much higher than that of the NBR (15 wt %)/MWNT composite. Such a high value would be due to the good dispersion of the/SG-SWNTs in the rubber matrix.
