A nanocomposite is as a multiphase solid material where one of the phases has one, two or three dimensions of less than 100 nanometers (nm), or structures having nano-scale repeat distances between the different phases that make up the material.  In the broadest sense this definition can include porous media, colloids, gels and copolymers, but is more usually taken to mean the solid combination of a bulk matrix and nano-dimensional phase(s) differing in properties due to dissimilarities in structure and chemistry. The mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, electrochemical, catalytic properties of the nanocomposite will differ markedly from that of the component materials. Size limits for these effects have been proposed, <5 nm for catalytic activity, <20 nm for making a hard magnetic material soft, <50 nm for refractive index changes, and <100 nm for achieving superparamagnetism, mechanical strengthening or restricting matrix dislocation movement.  (Wikipedia, Nanocomposites, 9/8/2011)


In this day of overworked technical people, keeping up is nearly impossible.  Maro's mission is to help keep up in as little time as possible.  Bookmark this page and check it often.  You will be surprised what can be picked up in just a few moments spent each day.

These pages list the links as they are found.  Some will abstracted and added to Maro Topics. (RDC 2/7/2012)
