The addition of nanoparticles to polymer composites has resulted in a brand new new release of composite fabrics with greater and novel homes. The editor and participants overview the most sorts of polymer nanocomposites and their functions during this book.Part one explains forms of polymer nanocomposites in accordance with fillers and discusses processing of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites, layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and cellulose nanoparticles as sensible fillers and reinforcement, along calcium carbonate and metal-polymer nanocomposites. half specializes in different types of polymer nanocomposites in keeping with matrix polymer, akin to polyolefin-based, (PVC)-based, nylon-based, (PET)-based and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) -based polymer nanocomposites. the realization investigates key functions, together with gasoline cells, aerospace functions, optical functions, coatings and flame retardant polymer nanocomposites.
