- We herein report a facile, cost-competitive, and scalable method for producing viscoelastic conductors via onepot melt-blending using polymers and supramolecular gels composed of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), diphenylamine (DP), and benzophenone (BP). When mixed, a non-volatile eutectic liquid (EL) produced by simply blending DP with BP (1:1 molar ratio) enabled not only the gelation of CNTs (ELCNTs) but also the dissolution of a number of commodity polymers. To make use of these advantages, viscoelastic conductors were produced via one-pot melt-blending the EL and CNTs with a model thermoplastic elastomer, poly(styreneb- butadiene-b-styrene) (SBS, styrene 30 wt%). The resulting composites displayed an excellent electromechanical sensory along with re-mendable properties. This simple method using cost-competitive EL components is expected to provide an alternative to the use of expensive ionic liquids as well as to facilitate the fabrication of novel composites for various purposes.
