Scientists observe the molecular motion of rubber components in tires

An international research team led by scientists from the University of Tokyo, Ibaraki University, and European XFEL has now observed the molecular motion within samples of polybutadiene and carbon black, which occurs naturally as a result of the material structure, with a time resolution of 890 nanoseconds (billionths of a second)—the fastest resolution obtained in such studies so far—at the European XFEL’s SPB/SFX instrument.

Influence of functionalized terpolymer resin on carbon black reinforced rubber compounds

Influence of functionalized terpolymer resin on carbon black reinforced rubber compounds and corelation with tire performance In recent years, the European Union (EU) has mandated reducing greenhouse gas emissions, especially carbon dioxide (CO2). Passenger cars are responsible for roughly 13% of the total CO2 emission in the E.U. From 2021, the CO2 emissions of new passenger cars must be reduced by 27% compared to 2015.
