Adding nanoparticles to polymer composites has resulted in a new generation of composite materials with enhanced and novel properties. Advancements in polymer nanocomposites studies the main types of polymer nanocomposites and their applications.

Part one offers an overview of the types of polymer nanocomposites according to fillers. Discussions are included on the 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 provides information on the types of polymer nanocomposites according to matrix polymer, with polyolefin-based, (PVC)-based, nylon-based, (PET)-based and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)-based polymer nanocomposites discussed. Soft, gel and biodegradable polymer nanocomposites are also under consideration. Part three studies the key applications, including fuel cells, aerospace applications, optical applications, coatings and flame-retardant polymer nanocomposites.

With its eminent editor and global team of expert contributors, Advances in polymer nanocomposites is an essential guide for professionals and academics involved in all aspects of the design, development and application of polymer nanocomposites.
