Synergy and Synthesis of Nanocomposites: Methods & Machinery

Momentous and unexpected advancements have been made in the synthesis, characterization, and prospective use of carbon-based nanomaterials over the past few decades. These materials with improved physical, chemical, and functional capabilities have been applied in various technologies. These functional complex nanomaterials have a wide range of potential applications in electronics, sensors, energy, environment, and medicine. The objectives of research in materials science include the improvement of multi-functional characteristics. These materials are characterized as compositions that fetch the enrichment of multiple properties to a specific application. Further, tricky molecular chemistry is essential to see the possibility of permitting the material to substitute other multiple materials in molecular engineering. This helps to research the end-use of the composites/compounds.

The configuration and properties of the nanocomposite systems not only depend on the individual building blocks but also on their interfacial characteristics and morphology. Organization, synthetic route, and potential application of the nano particle dispersion are important in controlling the physicochemical, mechanical properties like thermal stability, strength, biocompatibility, and adhesion resistance, toughness, stiffness, and hardness. The nanocomposite material is a product having nanoparticles dispersed in a matrix, where very little amounts of these nano-particles are continuously included in the composites which could lead to major weight loss in comparison to the inherited material targeted for replacement. Hence, the property improvement and designing the nanocomposite to be functional for multipurpose applications needs a special attention.

This Collection provides a timely overview of the topical developments in the field of nanocomposites for functional applications. The articles can address a wide range of subjects, including the preparation of materials, engineering, functionalization, and various applications, such as fuel cells, electrocatalysis, catalysis, photocatalysis, sensors, carbon-based organic/inorganic compounds, electronic devices, and bio-applications of nanomaterials. We hope that this Collection will provide a unique perspective on what has been accomplished and still needs to be investigated in the field of nanocomposites.
