The present paper reviews recent patents on polymer-inorganic particle blends with reference to silver particulate
films on softened polymer composites of polystyrene (PS)/ poly (2-vinyl pyridine) (P2VP) and PS/ poly (4-
vinylpyridine) (P4VP) deposited at a rate of 0.4 nm/s held at a temperature of 457 K in vacuum of 8x10-6Torr by evaporation.
There has been continuous development in the field of polymer-inorganic nano particle blends. Polymer-inorganic
particle blends are incorporated into structures involving interfaces with additional materials can be used for forming desirable
devices. Polymer blends with a vast variety of characteristics, architectures with properties that are often not
accessible with individual components are prepared. A method is used to form metal nanoparticles having a desired shape
and size by combining in a single solution, solvent, metal ions and copolymers under conditions such that metal nanoparticles
are formed. Nanoparticles layers can be distributed on a substrate using various methods. Blending of insulating
polymers with metal particle provides an insulating cover and cost reduction. Various methods are used to design nanoparticle
on a dielectric substrate for desired applications like charge storage in electronic devices, system and optical sensors.
