Summary Electrically conductive elastic nanocomposites with well-organized graphene architectures offer significant improvement in various properties. However, achieving desirable graphene architectures in cross-linked rubber is challenging due to high viscosity and cross-linked nature of rubber matrices. Here, three dimensional (3D) interconnected graphene networks in natural rubber (NR) matrix are framed with self-assembly integrating latex compounding technology by employing electrostatic adsorption between poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) modified graphene (positively charged) and NR latex particles (negatively charged) as the driving force. The 3D graphene structure endows the resulted nanocomposites with excellent electrical conductivity of 7.31. S/m with a graphene content of 4.16. vol.%, extremely low percolation threshold of 0.21. vol.% and also analogous reinforcement in mechanical properties. The developed strategy will provide a practical approach for developing elastic nanocomposites with multi-functional properties. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
