Strategies in Polymeric Nanoparticles and Hybrid Polymer Nanoparticles

Abstract

Polymer nanoparticles have gained significant research interest in increasing number of fields. Various techniques have been used for the synthesis of polymeric nanoparticles including polymerization of monomers as well as dispersion or processing of the synthesized polymers. While performing nanoparticle synthesis, the resulting particle size, distribution, cost, and end use must be considered beforehand. In addition to polymeric nanoparticles, certain hybrid polymeric nanoparticles have been prepared. The hybrid polymeric nanoparticles include the combination of polymer nanoparticles with other organic or inorganic particles such as carbon nanotube, graphene, graphene oxide, carbon black, silica, zinc, nickel, and several metal oxide nanoparticles. This review actually covers the basics and strategies used for the design of polymer nanoparticles and hybrid polymeric nanoparticles. In future, several crucial parameters must be identified and improved to design these nanoparticles to attain desired properties for high performance applications.
