Nanostructured Immiscible Polymer Blends: Migration and Interface covers a wide range of nanoparticle types, emphasizing the mechanisms and parameters involved in the migration of nanofillers inside immiscible polymer blends. This book explores the influence of nanoparticle migration on the localization, and hence, morphology development, electrical conductivity, and met-rheological properties of blended composite materials. As the influence of solid particles, ranging in size from several hundred nanometers to a few microns in immiscible polymer blends has been extensively studied for use as compatibilizers, morphology stabilizers, and reinforcement agents, this book is a timely resource.
- Outlines techniques used to prepare nanoparticles-modified immiscible polymer blend composites
- Explains the structural and morphological development, and melt-state rheological behaviors of nanoparticles-modified immiscible polymer blend composites
- Discusses major industrial applications
Materials Scientists and Engineers who are looking to learn more about how nanomaterials reinforcement can be used to optimize the properties of polymer blends

Professor Suprakas Sinha Ray is Chief Research Scientist and Director of the DST/CSIR National Centre for Nanostructured Materials, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, Pretoria, South Africa. He received his PhD degree in Physical Chemistry at the University of Calcutta, India in 2001 and was a recipient of the ‘‘Sir P.C. Ray Research Award’’ for the best PhD work. Prof. Ray’s current research focuses on the applications of advanced nanostructured and polymeric materials. He is one of the most active and highly cited authors in the field of polymer nanocomposite materials, and he has recently been rated by Thomson Reuters as being one of the Top 1% most impactful and influential scientists and Top50 high impact chemists. Prof. Ray is the author of 5 books, co-editor of 3 books, and has published 32 book chapters and 330 journal articles. Prof. Ray has received numerous awards, including South Africa’s National Science and Technology Award (NSTF) in 2016, the CSIR-wide Leadership Award in 2014, the CSIR Human Capital Development Award in 2014, and the International Polymer Processing Society’s Morand Lambla Award in 2013. He has also been appointed Extraordinary Professor by the University of Pretoria, and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry by the University of Johannesburg. Currently, he is serving as an Associate Editor of RSC Advances, and is an editorial board member of Macromolecular Materials and Engineering and the Journal of Films and Sheeting.
