  • Concentrates specifically on the four main groups of polymer nanocomposites
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of the dynamic properties of this important new class of materials
  • Describes the various processing methods used in their production, design, performance testing, and applications
  • Dedicates an entire section to inorganic/organic hybrid systems
  • Summary

    Offering improved barrier properties, fire resistance, and strength, polymer nanocomposites are increasingly desirable as coating, structural, and packaging materials in a wide range of automobile, civil, and electrical engineering applications. Polymer Nanocomposites offers a comprehensive review of the main types of polymer nanocomposites and their properties. Part I reviews the range of layered silicates and discusses such properties as flammability, thermal stability, barrier properties, wear resistant and biodegradability. Part II considers nanotubes, nanoparticles, and inorganic-organic hybrid systems, and analysis elasticity and strength as well as magnetic and light-emitting properties.
