New Book Sheds Light on Polymer Nanocomposite Characterization Techniques

Research and Markets has included a new book titled ‘Characterization Techniques for Polymer Nanocomposites. Polymer Nano-, Micro- and Macrocomposites’ to its catalogue.

John Wiley and Sons’ new book focuses on nanocomposite characterization techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, light and electron microscopy, and x-ray diffraction and spectrometry, and facilitates the correct interpretation of the recorded data.

Each chapter describes a specific characterization technique, covering its basics and helping users to understand its advantages and drawbacks. Hence, the reader can reliably envisage the microstructure of the synthesized polymer nanocomposites as well as their mechanical and thermal properties. This, in turn, helps readers to evaluate the suitability of the materials for specific applications. This book, written by Vikas Mittal, will be helpful to every product engineer.

Key topics covered in the report included Characterization of Nanocomposite Materials: An Overview; Thermal Characterization of Fillers and Polymer Nanocomposites; Flame-Retardancy Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposites; PVT Characterization of Polymeric Nanocomposites; Following the Nanocomposites Synthesis by Raman Spectroscopy and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS); Tribological Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposites; Dielectric Relaxation Spectroscopy for Polymer Nanocomposites; AFM Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposites; Electron Paramagnetic Resonance and Solid-State NMR Studies of the Surfactant Interphase in Polymer&ndash Clay Nanocomposites; Characterization of Rheological Properties of Polymer Nanocomposites; Segmental Dynamics of Polymers in Polymer/Clay Nanocomposites Studied by Spin-Labeling ESR; Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposite Colloids by Sedimentation Analysis; and Biodegradability Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposites.
