Book Description

Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites: Characterization, Processing, and Applications discusses the most recent research in nanomaterials and nanocomposites for a range of applications, as well as modern characterization tools and techniques. It deals with nanocomposites that contain a dispersion of nanosized particulates and carbon nanotubes in their matrices (polymer, metal, and ceramic). In addition, the work:

  • Describes different nanomaterials, such as metal and metal oxides, clay and POSS, carbon nanotubes, cellulose and biobased polymers in a structured manner
  • Examines processing of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites, layered double hydroxides, and cellulose nanoparticles as functional fillers and reinforcement
  • Covers size effect on thermal, mechanical, optical, magnetic, and electrical properties
  • Details machining and joining aspects of nanocomposites
  • Discusses the development of smart nanotextiles (intelligent textiles), self-cleaning glass, sensors, actuators, ferrofluids, and wear-resistant nanocoatings

This book enables an efficient comparison of properties and capabilities for these advanced materials, making it relevant for materials scientists and chemical engineers conducting academic research and industrial R&D into nanomaterials processing and application.
