Abstract

The incorporation of metal nanoparticles into polymers has resulted in the origination of a new class of materials that have found fascinating interest in biomedical, catalytic, optical and electronic as well as quantum-size domain applications. This review article describes different strategies that have been adopted for the synthesis of metal nanocomposite materials with polymers and gel macromolecules (hydrogels and nanogels).
