Nitrogen-doped graphene oxide (GO), namely, NG, was prepared by o-phenylenediamine (OPD) grafting onto GO. The structure and morphology of NG were characterized by FITR, XRD, SEM, EDS, Raman spectroscopy, and TGA. OPD was linked to the GO surface by covalent bonds, and the absorption peak of the C=N bond in the phenazine structure was identified in the FITR spectra. The aging resistance properties of nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR)-NG composites was investigated by mechanical testing, before and after aging. The resistance of the NBR/NG composites with the addition of 3 phr NG fillers was the highest. The aging mechanism was investigated by TGA-DSC, DMA, equilibrium swelling testing, and ATR-FTIR. The results showed that NG could effectively inhibit chain cross-linking in NBR. View Full-Text
