The first systematic reference on the topic with an emphasis on the characteristics and dimension of the reinforcing filler

Volume One
begins by discussing the state of the art, new challenges, and opportunities of macro and micro composites.

Volume Two focuses on nanoparticles, investigating their synthesis, surface modification and characterization, as well as the manufacturing technology of nanocomposites and their interface modification and characterization.

Volume Three on biocomposites discusses the synthesis, structure and properties of natural and synthetic biopolymers, as well as the preparation, microstructure and properties of biofibers, together with their surface modification, characterization, and manufacturing.
