Synthesis and applications of nanoparticles in polymer matrix

Subject of this cumulative dissertation is the synthesis of nanoparticles and their applications in polymer matrix. Nanoparticles have diameter from 1 to 100 nm. Due to their small size and high surface area these particles show unique optical, magnetic and metallic properties. Because of these prop...
