  • A PS/silica hybrid nanomatrix was formed by graft copolymerization of first styrene and then VTES onto NR particles in the latex stage. This hybrid nanomatrix structure was composed of nanosilica with a size of less than 100 nm and PS, which resulted in outstanding mechanical and viscoelastic properties. The superior properties of the hybrid nanomatrix were due to the synergetic effect of PS and nanosilica. The morphology and mechanical properties of the hybrid nanomatrix were maintained after acetone extraction, whereas they were distorted and reduced, respectively, after annealing
