Fullerenes are the carbon materials that only 60 or more carbon atoms are covalently bounded. Since such greatly unique materials were discovered, many researches of fullerenes have been carried out. On the other hand, the unique carbon soot (CS) is yielded at production of fullerene, but it is not really investigated. However, we think that the application of CS is extremely important from the perspective of fullerene research and of market expansion. In this study, we prepared the composites by adding CS to styrene block copolymer (SBC), and then investigated the additional effect by measuring dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and tensile properties. It was found that tensile modulus and heat-aging resistance of the SBC improved by adding CS.
