The development of novel nanocomposite materials with enhanced physical and chemical properties is one of the emergent topics of the recent years. Since the development of affordable available commercially nanomaterials, nanocomposites have become a most desirable product. Development of novel nanocomposites with enhanced optical properties became of real interest for domains such as data transmission, sensors, nonlinear optics devices, etc. Electric/dielectric nanocomposites are on the top of the research for novel supercapacitors or other renewable energy applications; nanocomposites with specific surface properties became very attractive for antistatic, antibacterial, photocatalytic, etc., functional surface applications while enhanced mechanical properties are desirable for a plethora of needs in transportation, home appliances, architectural applications, etc. Having simultaneously more than one functionality is possible using nanocomposites materials by achieving a synergistic effect of nano-components/matrix properties. The present Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from nanocomposites synthesis/fabrication to the design and characterization of various nanocomposites materials with enhanced optical, electrical, mechanical, and surface-related properties as well as practical applications. The format of welcome articles includes original full papers, communications, and reviews.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Nanocomposite materials with enhanced optical properties
- Nanocomposite materials with enhanced electrical properties
- Nanocomposite materials with enhanced surface related properties
- Nanocomposite materials with enhanced mechanical properties
