About this book

This book is the first comprehensive collection of electronic aspects of different kinds of elastomer composites, including combinations of synthetic, natural and thermoplastic elastomers with different conducting fillers like metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, or graphenes, and many more. It covers elastomer composites, which are useful in electronic applications, including chemical and physical as well as material science aspects. The presented elastomer composites have great potential for solving emerging new material application requirements, for example as flexible and wearable electronics.
The book is structured and organized by the rubber/elastomer type: each chapter describes a different elastomer matrix and its composites. While introducing to important fundamentals, it is application-oriented, discussing the current issues and challenges in the field of elastomer composites. This book will thus appeal to researchers and scientists, to engineers and technologists, but also to graduate students, working on elastomer composites, or on electronics engineering with the composites, providing the readers with a sound introduction to the field and solutions to both fundamental and applied problems.

About the authors

Dr. Deepalekshmi Ponnamma works at the University of Qatar. Her research in the field of polymer elastomers (among other topics) has been published in international journals and book contributions, and has been awarded at several international conferences with best poster and oral presentation awards. Deepalekshmi Ponnamma already is experienced book editor.

Dr. Kishor Kumar Sadasivuni is an experienced researcher in the fields of polymers, elastomers and composites. He has been involved in the publication of several papers in international journals and of book chapters and has already coedited several books in his area of expertise.

Dr. Chaoying Wan joined WMG, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK as Assistant Professor in Nanocomposites in 2012. She had gained her PhD degree in Materials Science in 2004, and has conducted postdoctoral research at Loughborough University UK from 2006 to 2008. She was a Marie Curie Fellow at Trinity College Dublin during 2009 and 2011.

Prof. Sabu Thomas is listed in position of no. 5 in the list of most productive researchers in India. He has published over 600 peer reviewed publications, reviews and book chapters (h-index 65, with over 15000 citations) in the fields of polymers, elastomers, composites, blends, and connected fields. Sabu Thomas has co-edited 30 books and is the inventor of 3 patents.

Professor Mariam AlMaadeed is the director of the Center for Advanced Materials at Qatar University. She received her PhD in Materials Science from Alexandria University in Alexandria, Egypt in 2001 and joined the Physics Department at Qatar University in the same year. Mariam has had a long experience and a large body of internationally recognized work in the field of polymers characterization and structure, as well as in nanocomposites and nanotechnology techniques. Her work is featured in more than 80 journals and conference publication

s. Dr. Mariam has many research grants as PI and Co-PI on different projects with total funds amounting to approximately $6,700,000 during the last five years. 
Dr. AlMaadeed has given many consultations and workshops to a diverse group of organizations such as industries and ministries, as well as the community. She is currently a member of Research Council Committee, Quality and Management Committee and New Reform Committee. Dr. Mariam designed and contributed to many workshops, symposiums and conferences in the field of materials science and in teaching and learning strategies. Among the accolades she has received is the Physics State Award on 2010/ 2011 and the Gulf Petrochemical Association (GPCA) Plastic Excllence Award 2014.
