A various organic modifiers depending on the substituents of ammonium ions were synthesized and used to prepare organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT). Nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR)/OMMT nanocomposites could be obtained using melt-compounding followed by hot-press vulcanization. d-Spacings of OMMT were changed as the chemical structures of modifiers were varied. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and tensile measurements of NBR nanocomposites revealed that the structures of organic modifiers affect… CONTINUE READING
