Abstract

There is a growing interest on polymer materials reinforced with the various nanoparticles in last few decades. Characterization and analysis of the nanoparticles and the polymers incorporated with nanoparticles has revealed the advantages of nanomaterials over the conventional polymer materials. The in-depth characterization of nanoparticles-based polymeric materials helped researchers in identifying the typical characteristic of individual nanoparticles as well as the behavior of the nanoparticle-filled polymeric materials. The characterization techniques have played a vital role in aided the research community and commercial organizations to establish the nanoparticle-based polymer materials as a reliable substitute in many applications. This chapter discusses the use of various characterization techniques to determine the thermal, morphological, antimicrobial, and crystallographic properties of the nanoparticle-incorporated polymers.
