Nanomaterials and Polymer Nanocomposites: From Raw Materials to Applications brings together the most recent research in nanoparticles and polymer nanocomposites for a range of applications. The coverage is comprehensive, starting from synthesis techniques and moving to characterization and applications of several different classes of nanomaterial and nanoparticle in nanocomposites.
By presenting different nanomaterials - such as metal and metal oxides, clay and POSS, carbon nanotubes, cellulose, and bio-based polymers - in a structured manner, the book enables an efficient comparison of properties and capabilities for these advanced materials, making it relevant both for researchers in an academic environment and also industrial R&D.
This book is particularly distinctive due to its discussion being centred around the raw materials on which the nanocomposites are based, the biological properties of the range of materials discussed, and the environmental and economic considerations of different polymer systems.
