Nanocomposites are formed by the blending of two or more than two materials in which the fillers are nano-dimensional materials. Composites have good properties than conventional metal alloys, ceramics, and polymeric materials. Polymer nanocomposite is a combination of a polymer and a nanofiller. Graphene and carbon nanotubes-based polymer nanocomposites are the emerging materials due to various enhanced properties such as low density and extraordinary mechanical properties. The carbon nanotubes-polymer and graphene–polymer nanocomposites are produced by melt mixing, solution blending, and in situ polymerization techniques. Graphene and carbon nanotube polymer nanocomposite are utilized for a wide range of application in various areas such as sensors, energy storage, electronic devices, Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, transportation, biomedical, aerospace, automotive, sporting goods, and energy, defense, and infrastructure areas.
