Reflecting the exceptional growth in the use of nanostructured materials for an increasing range of industrial applications, Polymer Nanocomposites Handbook comprehensively covers the synthesis of nanomaterials that act as the building blocks of polymer nanocomposites and polymers that act as matrix materials. From early history to new technologies, the book guides readers through the development of nanocomposites and their broad and rapidly developing applications from flame retardant properties to advances in polymer compounding. Using examples from todayas leading academic and industrial research labs, top scientists provide in-depth discussions of the science, processing, and technology that have accompanied nanocompositesa ascension into the world of chemical and materials science. With nineteen chapters authored by world leaders in nanocomposite research, this handbook provides diverse and authoritative coverage on the scientific underpinnings and revolutionary discoveries related to this promising field.Electrically and thermally conductive polymer composites can be of interest for many niche applications. ... as Ford Motor Company introduced MWNT nanocomposites in mirror housings on the 1998 Ford Taurus.10 Thus, like their nanoclayanbsp;...
