By Aravind Dasari, Zhong-Zhen Yu, Yiu-Wing Mai

This highlights ongoing learn efforts on assorted facets of polymer nanocomposites and explores their potentials to show multi-functional houses. during this context, it addresses either basic and complex thoughts, whereas delineating the parameters and mechanisms accountable for those potentials. elements thought of contain embrittlement/toughness; wear/scratch behaviour; thermal balance and flame retardancy; barrier, electric and thermal conductivity; and optical and magnetic homes.

extra, the publication used to be written as a coherent unit instead of a suite of chapters on various themes. As such, the implications, analyses and discussions provided herein offer a advisor for the advance of a brand new classification of multi-functional nanocomposites. providing a useful source for fabrics researchers and postgraduate scholars within the polymer composites box, they'll additionally drastically gain fabrics

The carbon layers (also called as graphene sheets) are 1 atom thick, and the carbon bonding involves sp2 hybridization (trigonal) (Fig. 10) [47]. As graphite is anisotropic, it exhibits good electrical and thermal conductivities within the layers (due to the in-plane metallic bonding) and relatively poor conductivities normal to the layers (due to the weak van der Waals forces between the layers).
