Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Incorporation of nanoscopic particles into host polymeric matrix not only provides an opportunity to strongly improve the mechanical, environmental and many other properties but also offers the possibility to obtain new optical, electrical, and magnetic properties which are not inherent in the constituent materials. These properties can be tailored by controlling the chemical composition, size, shape as well as the volume fraction and the distribution of the nanoscale particles within the polymer matrix thus broadening the application potential of nanocomposites to emerging fields of energy, environment, and medicine.

The functional applications of the nanocomposites can be further extended by making the polymer matrix responsive to external stimuli. Photo-active, thermally responsive, pH-sensitive, or piezoelectric polymers can be implemented for the development of a new generation of nanocomposite where the properties can be changed by external fields, temperature, surrounding media, and mechanical forces for instance. In this way, smart materials (composite) could be fabricated through the combination of metallic and nonmetallic fillers and a stimuli-sensitive polymer matrix for variety of applications.

This issue aims to cover research on all aspects of the types of nanocomposites mentioned above from their fabrication, characterization and theoretical simulation to function and application. Moreover, manuscripts on the investigation and analysis of the interaction of nanoparticles with the matrix and their influence on the rheological and physicochemical properties of the matrix are highly welcomed. Additionally, studies on "nanohybrid" systems where the nanoparticles are used as decorating element of the polymer (e.g., coloration) are also highly appreciated.

Silicon-based anode to boost lithium-ion battery

Easy Adoption
The simple, low-cost fabrication technique was designed to be easily scaled up and compatible with existing battery manufacturing. Once fabricated, the nanocomposite anodes would be used in batteries just like conventional graphite structures. That would allow battery manufacturers to adopt the new anode material without making dramatic changes in production processes.
And because the final composite spheres are relatively large when they are fabricated into anodes, the self-assembly technique avoids the potential health risks of handling nanoscale powders
