Abstract The high gas barrier property of a rubber composite is of great significance for reducing the exhaust gas emissions due to tire rolling resistance and hence the contribution this factor makes to environmental protection. Enhanced covalent interfaces and crosslinked networks are crucial to the gas barrier property of rubber composites. In this research, γ-mercaptopropyltriethoxysilane (MPS) modified GO (MGO)/styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) composites were prepared by a synergetic strategy of latex compounding method and thiol-ene click reaction. It was found that the mercapto groups in MGO reacted with the vinyl groups in SBR molecules through thiol-ene click reaction during the crosslinking process at 150 °C, thus forming strong chemical interactions at the interface in the form of GO-MPS-rubber and enhanced crosslinked networks. Meanwhile, the strong interface promoted the dispersion of MGO in SBR. The uniform dispersion of MGO, strong interface between MGO and SBR molecules and enhanced crosslinked networks resulted in improved mechanical and gas barrier properties. When filling 5 phr fillers, the tensile strength and gas barrier properties of an MGO/SBR composite improved by 19.0% and 37.5%, respectively, relative to the comparing GO/SBR composite.

Abstract A crosslinkable graphene oxide (GO) was synthesized and employed as reinforcement in waterborne polyurethane (WPU) composite coatings for improving corrosion protection properties. Polycarbodiimide (PCD), a crosslinking agent of WPU, was chosen to modify GO. Three different conformations of functionalized graphene will be generated: grape cluster conformation, network conformation and tail conformation, varying mainly with the PCD/GO ratio. Experiments and molecular dynamics simulation ...

Abstract Constructing strong interfacial interactions and complex filler networks is crucial to establishing high gas barrier properties in rubber composites. In this research, sulfur-graphene oxide (S-GO) hybrids were prepared by in situ growth of sulfur on the surfaces of GO sheets. The S-GO hybrids were also introduced into butadiene styrene rubber (SBR) using a green method of latex compounding. Results showed that sulfur could melt and spread on the surface of the GO during the crosslinking...

Abstract Intumescent transparent coatings consisting of allyl-functionalized phosphonitrile (HABP), trimethylolpropane tris(3-mercaptopropionate) (TMMP) and 1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorodecanethiol (PFDT) were prepared via photo-induced thiol-ene reactions without photoinitiator, and then fabricated onto wood surfaces to achieve both flame retardancy and hydrophobicity. The effects of PFDT content on the waterproof and fire prevention of the samples were investigated. The chemical structure of the HABP ...

Abstract To improve the dispersion of graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets in sizing agent and to enhance the interfacial adhesion between GO and epoxy, GO nanosheets were chemically modified with cyanuric chloride (TCT) and diethylenetriamine (DETA). The functionalized GO (i.e. GO-TCT-DETA) with different contents was introduced into the carbon fiber (CF) interface by sizing process. The uniform distribution of GO sheets on CF surface and the enhancement of surface roughness were obtained. Moreover, ...

Abstract The development of a green and facile strategy for fabricating ecofriendly, highly effective flame retardants has remain a major challenge. Herein, supermolecular aggregates of piperazine (PiP) and phytic acid (PA) have been self-assembled onto the graphene oxide (GO) surface in water to fabricate functionalized GO (PPGO). The chemical structure and morphology of PPGO are determined by the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscop...

Abstract Graphene oxide (GO) and silica (SiO2) nanoparticles have been hybridized using KH550 modified GO (KGO) and Si69 modified SiO2 (MS) to develop natural rubber (NR)-based high-performance tire-treads. Due to donor-acceptor and π-π interactions of NR with the Si69 and GO respectively, SiO2/GO hybrid (MSKGO) was homogeneously dispersed in NR-latex. During drying and curing, the composite of NR and the MSKGO (NRMSKGO) was converted to covalent bonded network structure through possible condens...

Abstract In this paper, we proposed a novel method to fabricate thiol-modified reduced graphene oxide-waterborne polyurethane/cotton (M-rGO-WPU/cotton) fabric that provided a robust electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding performance and excellent thermal conductivity. The WPU molecules with ene groups at the both ends were synthesized and acted as a polymer matrix to connect the rGO and cotton substrate with the thiols via the synchronous thiol-ene click reaction, respectively. The introdu...

Abstract Protection against sulfur mustard (HD) is essential for the safety of the operators in the lab and in war. In this research, graphene oxide/butyl rubber (GO/IIR) composites were first prepared by a green method of latex compounding. This method achieved uniform dispersion of GO in IIR matrix for the GO content up to 2 phr (parts per hundreds of rubber). More importantly, there was a strong interfacial interaction between GO and IIR chains. When the GO content was 2 phr, the tear and ten...

Abstract Three-dimensional carbon honeycombs (3D C-honeycombs) are considered as a promising matrix material for new composites, while their mechanical behaviors under complex stress status remain unclear. Here, shear response of 3D C-honeycombs is systematically investigated with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and mechanical analysis. Two deformation modes are observed for 3D C-honeycombs under in-plane and out-of-plane shear loading. A mechanical model is proposed to describe the deformat...

Abstract A green and facile preparation method of graphene oxide/nitrile butadiene rubber (GO/NBR) nanocomposite film was developed for application in gas barrier. In the process, chemical crosslinks were formed by graphene oxide (GO)-induced crosslinking in absence of vulcanization ingredients. It was found that the GO-induced crosslinking occurred at a higher concentration of 1.0 wt% and a higher temperature of 170.0°C. The GO-induced crosslinking did not only enhance the crosslinking density ...
