Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The New copy of this book will include any supplemental materials advertised. Please check the title of the book to determine if it should include any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.
  • The Rental copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


Structured as a practical lab manual, this book provides detailed descriptions of how polymeric nanocomposites are synthesized, offering the reader an understanding of the principles and techniques involved. Topics covered include: an introduction to the properties and applications of nanocomposite materials; explanation of morphological and topological concepts; theory of phase separation and nanoparticle aggregation; methods for the synthesis of nanocomposites; exercising morphological control; standard characterization techniques and methods for data analysis used in the synthesis of NCs; and related toxicity issues.
