The progress of nanostructured materials have untied a new standard whereas
the nanoreinforcement and matrix resin can be modified to optimize the physical and
mechanical properties of various composite materials. This resulted in appearance of
new frontiers in mechanical and electronic structures centering on multi functionalized,
self-assembling, self-healing materials and have shown outstanding applications in
many fields. This chapter emphasizes about nanocomposites, their classification and
characterization of different types of nanocomposites.
