836 pages7 hours


Provides a one-stop source for information on synthesis,properties, and potential applications of nanotube reinforcedpolymer nanocomposites

Research on polymer nanotube composites is a relatively newfield, and a lot of development is required to achieve a verylarge-scale commercial application. Although a number ofdevelopments have taken place in terms of the dispersion ofnanotubes in the polymer matrices and corresponding improvements inthe various physical properties of the composites, a meaningfultext on the subject, which can assimilate these advancements in oneplace to provide an overall potential of the technology, ismissing.

This edited volume brings together contributions from a varietyof senior scientists in the field of polymer nanotube compositestechnology to shed light on the recent advances in thesecommercially important areas of polymer technology. The bookprovides the following features:

A summary of recent advances in nanotube composite synthesistechnology A basic introduction to polymer nanotube nanocompositetechnology for readers who are new to the field Valuable insights for the use of technologies for polymernanocomposites for commercial application Reviews of current polymer nanotube systems to underscore thehigh potential of nanotubes as fillers Pathways for large-scale commercial applications ofnanotubenanocomposites
