Abstract

Exfoliated graphite (EXG) was prepared from commercially available natural graphite flakes (NGF), through strong acid treatment followed by thermal shock at 950 oC. The EXG sheets were characterized with respect to their thermal stability via thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA) and Raman spectra. Their morphology and particle size were evaluated using scanning electron microscope (SEM) and particle size analyzer. The potential of EXG as reinforcement on the mechanical and thermal properties of the dynamically vulcanized polystyrene/styrene butadiene rubber (PS/SBR) composites were evaluated. The influence of EXG on the electrical properties of the composites was measured as well.
