Polymer composites are fabrics during which the matrix polymer is bolstered with organic/inorganic fillers of a distinct dimension and form, resulting in more desirable functionality of the ensuing composite. those fabrics discover a extensive variety of functions in such various fields as geotextiles, construction, electronics, scientific, packaging, and automobiles.
This first systematic reference at the subject emphasizes the features and size of this reinforcement. The authors are major researchers within the box from academia, executive, undefined, in addition to deepest examine associations around the globe, and undertake a pragmatic procedure the following, overlaying such elements because the practise, characterization, houses and concept of polymer composites.
The ebook starts through discussing the state-of-the-art, new demanding situations, and possibilities of varied polymer composite structures. Interfacial characterization of the composites is mentioned intimately, as is the macro- and micromechanics of the composites. Structure-property relationships in quite a few composite structures are defined with the aid of theoretical versions, whereas processing concepts for numerous macro- to nanocomposite platforms and the effect of processing parameters at the homes of the composite are reviewed intimately. The characterization of microstructure, elastic, viscoelastic, static and dynamic mechanical, thermal, tribological, rheological, optical, electric and barrier houses are highlighted, in addition to their myriad applications.
Divided into 3 volumes: Vol. 1. Macro- and Microcomposites; Vol. 2. Nanocomposites; and Vol. three. Biocomposites.

Finding out effective and economic processing methods is necessary for the separation of starting biomaterials into their pure forms for the production of biocomposites. Performance of the biocomposites is dependent on the inherent properties of the matrix and reinforcement and their interface characteristics. We can tailor the properties of the biocomposites by optimizing processing parameters and by employing suitable physical or chemical modiﬁcations to improve the interface. Identifying the thrust areas for the application of biocomposites and manufacture of prototypes and fabrication of useful products has an important role in biocomposite research.
Wood ceramics is not green, but the great part of this material is biomass-based. Such carbonized biomass materials also attract attention from the viewpoint of carbon ﬁxation technology, called biochar. It seems from the aforementioned that biocomposites can be deﬁned as a biomass-based composite occupying a larger category than green composites. On the other hand, we must not forget that ‘‘green’’ often means ‘‘environmentfriendly’’ as well as biodegradable. Many unnecessary textiles and discarded composite products are often treated as industrial waste, but we understand that these are recyclable.
Collagen has been extensively used for the regeneration of tissues, predominantly for the repair of soft tissues. It favors cell adhesion and provides cellular recognition for regulating cell attachment and function. Collagen undergoes enzymatic degradation in the body by means of enzymes, such as collagenases and metalloproteinases, to yield the corresponding amino acids . This enzymatically degradable biopolymer shows unique physicochemical, mechanical, and biological properties in various applications.
