Nanocomposite Structures and Dispersions, Second Edition, reviews the work dealing with the nanomaterials and nanostructures prepared by dispersion approaches. It also discusses recent advances in the preparation of smart nanostructures or biodecorated nanoparticles. It also deals with the functionalization and characterization of these nanostructures as well with interactions between (bio)polymers or polymer nanoparticles, metal nanoparticles, surface active agents, solvents and some selected additives. The book includes recent advances in the applications of functionalized polymer and composite nanoparticles that are conjugated with (bio) aptamers and oligomers. Furthermore, this book reviews recent progress in the area of polymer nanoparticles-metal nanoparticles based artificial/smart nanostructures, that is, the collective properties and applications of various polymer-based nanostructures. The goal of this book is to provide a platform for researchers working in the fields of nano(bio)technology to discuss the recent developments on various topics in this exciting area.
