Abstract

This chapter is focused on the formation and characterization of nanocomposites and the effects that the nanofiller has on the materials properties. The thermodynamics of mixing of the nano-dimensional material and the polymer is also thoroughly discussed. Significant attention is paid to theory throughout the discussion.
