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.

Keywords: Nanoparticles, optical properties, polymer blends, SEM, thin films, vapor deposition.
