2], There are several approaches toward improved silica dispersion and enhanced filler-rubber interactions, such as an optimization of the mixing equipment and procedure [3], silica surface treatment [4], newly developed silicas [5, 6], the use of polar-functionalized rubbers as compatibilizers [7], and in situ sol-gel synthesis using trialkoxysilanes with different functional groups as precursors [8, 9], The most widely used method to maximize the reinforcing efficiency of silica is the use of bifunctional organosilanes as coupling agents.
