About this Research Topic
Due to their composition and chemical/structural flexibility, composite nanomaterials are gaining significant interest for utilization in various applications. Recently, the integration of the composite components has resulted in enhanced efficiency in separation, storage, sensing, and selective catalysis. With cross-cutting strategies, where structural engineering and sophisticated processing are synergistically combined, scientists have been able to tailor composite systems of different shapes and size ranges, chemical composition, functionalization, and morphology for specific applications. Composite materials represent not only a new area of fundamental research but also, thanks to their impressive properties and multi-functional nature, offer opportunities for various novel applications in varied fields.
The very large set of accessible composite materials span a wide spectrum of properties which yield the emergence of innovative industrial applications in various domains. The description and discussion of the fabrication and major applications of the composites are the major subjects of this Research Topic. The very broad variety of available composite materials spans a broad variety of features that lead to the creation of innovative industrial applications in different fields.
