    The interfacial structures of elastomers reinforced by multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) were investigated by atomic force microscope using force modulation mode and force volume method. The composite of natural rubber with MWCNT which had 13 nm average diameter was prepared by mixing and peroxide crosslinking. Interfacial strucutures between natural rubber and MWCNT which exist around MWCNT were imaged by AFM. More detail will be announced at the day.
