Abstract:
Abstract: Reinforcement of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) was investigated using UiO-66 metal organic framework with similar particle sizes, prepared by mechanical mixing. Scanning electron microscopy was used to investigate nanoparticles morphology. The crystalline structure of UiO‐66 was determined by X‐ray diffraction (XRD). The specific surface areas were calculated using the Brunauer‐Emmett‐Teller (BET) method. The tensile test results shows that addition of 10 phr UiO-66 improves tensile strength, Young’s modulus, elongation at break of SBR 92%, 39%, and 98%, respectively.
