Structured as a practical lab manual, this book provides detailed descriptions of how polymeric nanocomposites are synthesized, offering the reader an understanding of the principles and techniques involved. Topics covered include: an introduction to the properties and applications of nanocomposite materials; explanation of morphological and topological concepts; theory of phase separation and nanoparticle aggregation; methods for the synthesis of nanocomposites; exercising morphological control; standard characterization techniques and methods for data analysis used in the synthesis of NCs; and related toxicity issues.
