Summary and Info
The addition of nanoparticles to polymer composites has led to a new generation of composite materials with enhanced and novel properties. The editor and contributors review the main types of polymer nanocomposites and their applications in this book.Part one explains types of polymer nanocomposites according to fillers and discusses processing of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites, layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and cellulose nanoparticles as functional fillers and reinforcement, alongside calcium carbonate and metal-polymer nanocomposites. Part two focuses on types of polymer nanocomposites according to matrix polymer, such as polyolefin-based, (PVC)-based, nylon-based, (PET)-based and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) -based polymer nanocomposites. The conclusion investigates key applications, including fuel cells, aerospace applications, optical applications, coatings and flame retardant polymer nanocomposites.
