Three-Dimensional Structural Analysis of Nanocomposite Materials Containing Nanoparticulates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Polymer materials are ubiquitous in our daily life. They often consist of more than one species of polymers and, therefore, can be called multicomponent systems. Organic-inorganic composites are a class of polymer-based multicomponent materials that have attracted the considerable interest of researchers because they often exhibit unexpected properties synergistically derived from the constituents (Kawasumi et al., 1997; Maiti et al., 2002). Nanometer-sized particulate fillers, e.g., carbon black and silica nanoparticles, are known to form hybrids with organic polymers, which show a significant increase in their static and dynamic moduli (Busfield et al., 2000), strength (Tsunoda et al., 2000), and thermal and electrical conductivities (Yamaguchi et al., 2003; Busfield et al., 2003).
