A nanocomposite is a composite material whose dispersed phase constitutes particles at least one of whose free dimensions is in the order of a nanometre or a few dozen nanometres at maximum. Under this definition, many metal-matrix-based nanocomposites are gathered (for instance materials resulting from the dispersion of nanoparticles of oxide, nitride, or metal carbide in matrices or metal alloy), ceramic or inorganic matrices-based nanocomposites, or nanocomposites based on organic matrices. The last group is described in this chapter, with a particular focus on polymer matrices.
