Nanomaterials for Polyurethane Nanocomposites
This chapter is a brief overview on nanomaterials that are used to produce polyurethane nanocomposites. It deals with the basic concepts, importance, classification, preparative methods, characterization, and properties of different types of nanomaterials. Nanohybrids, combinations of more than one individual nanomaterial, are also included in this chapter. In addition, the functionalization or modification and general applications of such nanomaterials are demonstrated. Concluding remarks and the future trends are highlighted at the end of this chapter.
