Most recent volume


Volume . New Horizons of Nano Fillers and Their Enhanced Nanocomposites

Published: 1st February 2022 Editor: Fengge Gao

New Horizons of Nano Fillers and Their Enhanced Nanocomposites: Applications, Health and Safety and Future Prospects not only covers innovative applications on the topic, it also addresses issues concerning nanocomposite materials in both industry and the academic community, mainly health and safety concerns in the application of these materials, along with future prospects for these materials in comparison with traditional fibers and filler enhancement materials. There is also an entire section dedicated to characterization techniques which have not been traditionally applied in nanocomposite research to date.

Nanocomposites are now progressing into a new era of research. Over the past two decades, the field has created new opportunities and applications in areas such as mechanical and barrier properties, anti-solvent resistance, heat distortion behavior, electrical conductivity and fire retardancy. Other newly emerging applications include clay nanoparticles in foam stability.
