This comprehensive reference book incorporates the latest developments in the synthesis,
production, characterization, and application of various types of polymeric nanocomposites.
It outlines the various preparation techniques using different types of nanoparticles
and polymer matrices with emphasis on clay nanoparticles.
All fundamental issues such as thermodynamics, kinetics, and rheology are discussed
and the structure and the characterization of polymeric nanocomposites, including
their molecular characteristics, thermal properties, morphology, and mechanical
properties, are covered in great detail.
