ABSTRACT

Nanocomposites are of great interest for the past five decades. Nanocomposite materials have been considered the most admirable alternatives in order to overcome the limitations of microcomposites [1]. Design uniqueness and property combinations are the reasons owing to which they are considered to be the materials of the 21st century. Conventional composites do not possess such properties. However, a complete understanding of these properties demands more research yet. Nanocomposites made their first appearance in the early 1950s [2].
