Written and edited by pioneers in the field, this text elucidates recent advancements in polyolefin nanocomposites, which have recently been shown to be commercially viable as nanocomposites across a number of fields, including biomedical science, aerospace, and automotive engineering. It focuses on theoretical models to understand the organic-inorganic interfaces in polyolefins and also provides a detailed description of the recently developed models for property prediction of these nanocomposites. It concentrates on developments with not only the aluminosilicate fillers, but also with equally important fillers like layer double hydroxides and nanotubes.
