Polymer Nanocomposite-Based Smart Materials: From Synthesis to Application provides a broad, comprehensive review on all major
categories of smart materials and their preparation routes. The main application fields and properties for these diverse types
of smart polymer-based composite and nanocomposite materials are also discussed. Chapters on modeling methods and simulation
look at the physical or chemical change response that is introduced by the effect of changing environmental conditions such
as pH, temperature, mechanical force and light. Written by scholars and experts from around the globe, the book covers key
aspects, such as synthesis, processing and applications of polymer and nanocomposite-based smart materials.
