In Situ Characterization of Size, Spatial Distribution, Chemical Composition, and Electroanalytical Response of Hybrid Nanocomposite Materials

Abstract

Life in the twenty-first century is dependent on an unlimited variety of advanced hybrid materials – among them, nanomaterials (NMs). The design of these NMs mostly depends on the current necessities of the society, the availability of resources, and the investment required for an appropriate scale-up production. Thus, regarding the preparation of novel NMs, it is mandatory for the evaluation of their properties in order to satisfy the desired applications with high performance. In this chapter, we discuss different techniques that offer the possibility of the in situ characterization of NMs and nanocomposite materials (NCs), in terms of their chemical composition, spatial distribution, and optical and electrochemical features, without modifying the material itself.
