dc.description.abstract Polymers- general properties are low strength and stiffness, poor conductors of electricity and heat, high dielectric strength, poor thermal properties and are nonmagnetic. Attempts over the years, have been made to change and/or improve some of these to increase the availability of polymers to a new range of applications. Recently, the use of nanoparticles has been shown great interest by researchers. This chapter looks at metal nanoparticles which exhibit uniquely different electronic and optical properties to their bulk counterparts. It is these interesting new properties that are one of the major driving forces for incorporation into polymer matrices. I particular methods of incorporation of the metal nanoparticles into the polymer, resultant properties, applications and future trends will be discussed
