Dc conductivity of CB-(top) and CNT-(bottom) polymer samples plotted against . Room temperature. From these graphs, the conduction transition volume fraction is estimated to be for the CB-SBR samples and for the, respectively, CNT-SBR samples. More data points are necessary to determine the onset conductivity accurately.
