Abstract

Nanocomposites are composites in which at least one of the phases shows dimensions in the nanometer range. These are high-performance materials and exhibit unusual property combinations and unique design possibilities. Nanocomposite membranes have emerged as suitable alternatives to overcome limitations of conventional membranes. However, there are challenges with respect to the control of elemental composition and stoichiometry in the nanocluster phase while making the nanocomposite materials. Nanocomposites are emerging as the promising material due to their superior properties compared to conventional composites.
