CALIXTO, Carolina Maria Fioramonti et al. Development of graphite-polymer composites as electrode materials. Mat. Res. [online]. 2007, vol.10, n.2, pp.109-114. ISSN 1516-1439.

Graphite powder was mixed to polyurethane, silicon rubber and Araldite® (epoxy) in order to prepare composite materials to be used in the preparation of electrodes. Results showed that voltammetric response could be obtained when at least 50% of graphite (w.w-1) is present in the material. SEM and thermogravimetry were also used in the characterization of the composites.

Keywords : composite electrodes; epoxy; polyurethane; silicon rubber.
