This is the first systematic reference on the topic with an emphasis on the characteristics and dimension of reinforcement.
Authored by leading researchers in the field from academia, government, industry, and private research institutions around the globe, this
second volume focuses on nanocomposites.
Following a glance at the state of the art, the book investigates the synthesis, surface modification and characterization of nanoparticles, the
manufacturing technology of nanocomposites and their interface modification and characterization, as well as the preparation and characterization of carbon nanotube filled polymer composites. All this is finally concluded with a look at health hazards, recycling, life cycle analysis, and applications.
