One Line Description
A concise manual to understand accomplished technology as well as the emerging state-of-art research in the area of polymer nanocomposites

The book will be useful to scientists and researchers, industrialists, and graduate students working in polymer science and engineering/nanotechnology as well as materials science.

Nanomaterials and related polymer nanocomposites have gained enormous interest in many fields in recent years because bio and synthetic nanomaterials display dramatically improved properties when blended with polymer matrices. In view of the advancing technology employing nanocomposites, researchers have focused on developing high performance polymer nanocomposites and their myriad applications. In this volume, Polymer Nanocomposites Based on Inorganic and Organic Nanomaterials:
• Presents all aspects of the different classes of nanomaterials, from synthesis to application.
• Investigates the use and feasibility of developing nanocomposites with these nanomaterials as reinforcements.
• Encompasses synthesis and properties of cellulose nanofibers, bacterial nanocellulose, carbon nanotubes/nanofibers, graphene, nanodiamonds, nanoclays, inorganic nanomaterials and their nanocomposites for high-end applications such as electronic devices, energy storage, structural and packaging.
• Details green and carbon-based nanocomposites.
• Provides insight into the various modification techniques for improving the functionality of nanomaterials apart from their compatibility with the base matrix.
