Due to their special mechanical and physical properties they have the potential to replace conventional materials. In nanocomposites the size of one phase is less than 100 nm in at least one dimension. Nanocomposites with polymer, metal or ceramic matrices find increasing application in bioengineering, battery cathodes, automotives, sensors and computers.
