    Abstract

    Previously, we reported that the interfacial structure between natural rubber (NR) and carbon nanotube (CNT) was observed by atomic force microscopy (AFM). In this study, to obtain more accurate information about the rheological property of the interfacial phase, we were investigated the strucuture by force-curve analyses, which was a method that enables us to obtain the quantative Young's modulus of the sample.
