About the book
Nanocomposites are the backbone of the new era of materials in modern science and technology. Due to the discovery of advanced nanostructures, carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, and processes, this class of materials has seen tremendous growth over the past few decades. The nanocomposite materials have been applied across various technology sectors such as structural materials, aerospace and automotive, sports goods, consumer appliances, memory and energy storage devices, photovoltaics, etc. Nanotechnology is one of the fast-growing areas for research that spans across all major scientific disciplines to bring nanoscale materials much closer to reality. Nanocomposites are composed of reinforcements that have at least one dimension in nanoscale. Keeping the advantages of various nanostructured materials, nanocomposites, nanocomposite coatings, and technologies, this book showcases a comprehensive collection of the recent developments in nanostructured materials, nanomaterials, and nanocomposites.
This book also summarizes the nanocomposite materials synthesis, characterization, properties, and advanced applications. Several issues and steps for future research work are also highlighted for the efficient growth and development of nanomaterials and nanocomposites for their wide use and sustainable development.
