Polymer Nanocomposites for Electronics, Dielectrics, and Microwave Applications

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview on the carbon nanofillers such as carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene-based polymer nanocomposites for electronics, dielectrics, and microwave applications. The carbon-based nanofillers such as CNT and graphene are having sp2-hybridized C-atoms arranged in three-dimensional and two-dimensional lattice manner, respectively. These nanofillers exhibit exceptional thermal, mechanical, and dielectric properties. The carbon nanofillers create interconnected conductive networks in the insulating polymer matrix, and that enables the polymer nanocomposites a potential multifunctional material for various use in dielectric, electronic, and microwave fields. The applications of carbon nanofiller-based polymer nanocomposites in capacitor, super capacitor, sensor, and dielectric field have been described in this chapter briefly.
