The novel properties of multifunctional polymer nanocomposites make them useful for a broad range of applications in fields as diverse as space exploration, bioengineering, car manufacturing, and organic solar cell development, just to name a few. Presenting an overview of polymer nanocomposites, how they compare with traditional composites, and their increasing commercial importance, Multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites conveys the significance and various uses of this new technology for a wide audience with different needs and levels of understanding. ...
Polymer nanocomposites are commonly defined as the combination of a
polymer matrix and additives that have at least one dimension in the nanometer
range. The additives can be one-dimensional (examples include nanotubes and
fibres), two-dimensional (which include layered minerals like clay), or three-
dimensional (including spherical particles). Over the past decade, polymer
nanocomposites have attracted considerable interests in both academia and
industry, owing to their outstanding mechanical properties like elastic stiffness
and strength with only a small amount of the nanoadditives.
The objective of the research is to assess the reinforcement possibility of CNT in the rubber substrate and blend rubber in order to create rubber nanocomposite materials with a high mechanical properties, sustainability in the solvent, and suitable electrical conductivity.

Today, nano composite material is being studied and widely used for defence security and economic development. Keeping researching on the mechanic of three-phases nano composite in which two-phases is grains of pad and the structure of one-phase in reinforced two-phases is a nano structure, basing on consideration for interaction of the polyme matrix and grains of padding, we have defined engineering constants of the three-phases polyme composite nano material.
Rapid development of optoelectronic devices and laser techniques poses an important
task of creating and
studying, from one side, the structures capable of effectively converting, modulating,
and recording optical data in a wide range of radiation energy densities and
frequencies, from another side, the new schemes and approaches capable to activate and
simulate the modern features. It is well known that nonlinear optical phenomena and
nonlinear optical materials have the promising place to resolve these complicated
This paper will show the results of the first experiments to get nano-clay clay composite materials based on modified polystyrene resin by melt - mix method. The intercalated nanocomposite structures are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques. Polystyrene nano-composites with 2% nanoclay by weight exhibit an increases about 10% in impact resistance and they also lower the water absortion (nearly 60% compared with polystyrene resin) without any significant loss of tensile strength, flexural strength and flexural modulus.
