We studied the effect of the microstructure of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on interfacial interaction in seven kinds of MWCNT/natural rubber (NR) composites. Unexpectedly, the degree of defects (ID/IG) of MWCNTs was found to play a key role in the interfacial interaction of MWCNT/NR composites. The content of bound rubber (BR) of the composites almost linearly increased with the increase...
