About this book


Highly dispersed nanoscale particles in polymer matrices are currently attracting great interest in many fields of chemistry, physics and materials science. This book presents and analyzes the essential data on nanoscale metal clusters dispersed in, or chemically bonded with polymers. Special attention is paid to the in situ synthesis of the nanocomposites, their chemical interactions, and the size and distribution of the particles in the polymer matrix. Numerous novel nanocomposites are described with regard to their mechanical, electrophysical, optical, magnetic, catalytic and biological properties. Their applications, present and future, are outlined. The book is addressed both to researchers who actively use these materials and to students entering this multidisciplinary field.

From the reviews:

"A useful single-source for a great deal of information on a broad portion of nanomaterials. … This book would be useful for a graduate level course on metal-polymer nanosystems because it contains good introductory information, coverage of synthesis and applications, and a very large number of references, with many of the chapters citing a reasonable number of sources published since 2000." (Patty Wisian-Neilson, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 128 (2-3), 2006)
