Abstract

The use of nanocomposites in materials processing can lead to monophasic or multiphasic ceramics, glasses or porous materials, with tailored and improved properties. This review deals with a variety of nanocomposites such as sol-gel, intercalation, entrapment, electroceramic and structural ceramic types, which exhibit superior properties when compared to the monophasic or microcomposite alternatives. The utilization of nanocomposites in materials processing is forecasted to have a major impact in catalytic, sensor, optical, electroceramic and structural ceramic materials.
