РЕФЕРАТ (Abstract)

The present invention provides a modified diene rubber which can be produced economically and improve low-loss properties and wear resistance of a rubber composition made therefrom, as compared with the conventional modified diene rubber. The present invention further provides: a method of producing the modified diene rubber; a rubber composition using the modified diene rubber; and a tire using the rubber composition. Specifically, the present invention provides: a modified diene rubber, produced by first oxidizing diene rubber latex and then adding a polar group-including hydrazide compound to a terminal end of a molecular chain of the diene rubber; a rubber composition, comprising the modified diene rubber; and a tire, comprising a tire member made of the rubber composition.

ФОРМУЛА ИЗОБРЕТЕНИЯ (CLAIMS)

The invention claimed is:

1. A modified diene rubber, produced by first oxidizing diene rubber latex and then adding a hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof to a terminal end of a molecular chain of the diene rubber.

2. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein the diene rubber latex is natural rubber latex.

3. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein an amount of the hydrazide compound to be added is 0.01 to 5.0 mass % with respect to a rubber component in the diene rubber latex.

4. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein the polar group is at least one type of polar group selected from the group consisting of amino, imino, nitryl, ammonium, imido, amido, hydrazo, azo, diazo, hydroxyl, carboxyl, carbonyl, epoxy, oxycarbonyl group, nitrogen-containing heterocyclic group, oxygen-containing heterocyclic group, tin-containing group and alkoxysilyl group.

5. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein the weight-average molecular weight thereof measured by Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) in terms of polystyrene equivalents is not smaller than 200,000.

6. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein oxidation of the diene rubber latex is carried out by adding a carbonyl compound to the diene rubber latex to effect oxidization of the latex.

7. The modified diene rubber of claim 1, wherein oxidation is carried out by air oxidation or ozone oxidation.

8. The modified diene rubber of claim 7, wherein the air oxidation is carried out under the presence of a radical-generating agent.

9. The modified diene rubber of claim 6, wherein the carbonyl compound is an aldehyde and/or a ketone.

10. The modified diene rubber of claim 8, wherein the radical-generating agent is selected from the group consisting of a peroxide radical-generating agent, a redox radical-generating agent and an azo radical-generating agent.

11. A method of producing a modified diene rubber, comprising the steps of: oxidizing a diene rubber latex; coagulating the oxidized diene rubber latex; adding a hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof to the coagulated product of the oxidized diene rubber latex thus obtained, thereby causing the hydrazide compound to be reacted with and added to a terminal end of a molecular chain of diene rubber of the coagulated product of the oxidized diene rubber latex; and drying the resulting product.

12. A method of producing a modified diene rubber, comprising the steps of: oxidizing a diene rubber latex; coagulating and drying the oxidized diene rubber latex to obtain an oxidized diene rubber; and adding a hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof to the oxidized diene rubber thus obtained, thereby causing the hydrazide compound to be reacted with and added to a terminal end of a molecular chain of diene rubber of the oxidized diene rubber.

13. A method of producing a modified diene rubber, comprising the steps of: oxidizing a diene rubber latex; adding a hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof to the oxidized diene rubber latex thus obtained, thereby causing the hydrazide compound to be reacted with and added to a terminal end of a molecular chain of diene rubber in the oxidized diene rubber latex; and coagulating and drying the resulting product.

14. A rubber composition, comprising the modified diene rubber of claim 1.

15. A tire, comprising a tire member made of the rubber composition of claim 14.

16. A natural rubber, characterized in that a terminal end of a molecular chain thereof has been modified, wherein the terminal end of the molecular chain has a hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof, and said natural rubber is produced by first oxidizing natural rubber latex and then adding the hydrazide compound including at least a polar group within a molecule thereof to a terminal end of a molecular chain of the natural rubber.

17. A rubber composition, comprising the natural rubber of claim 16.
