Quantum Dots and Polymer Nanocomposites: Synthesis, Chemistry, and Applications reviews the properties, fabrication, and current and potential users of quantum dots-based polymer composites. It offers a much-needed update on the essential components of polymer nanocomposites by exploring the synthesis, processing, classification, characterisation, and applications of quantum dots.
Topics include modern fabrication technologies, processing, nanostructure formation, and the mechanisms of reinforcement. This book also covers biocompatibility, suitability, and toxic effects of quantum dots-based polymer nanocomposites. Applications such as biomedical, pollution mitigation, sensors, and catalysis are explored, as are opportunities and future research directions. This edited book acts as a one-stop reference book for researchers, academics, advanced students, and scientists studying epoxy blends.
It will be of interest to materials scientists, polymer technologists, nanotechnologists, chemical engineers, physicists (optics, plasmonics), chemists, and mechanical engineers, among others.
