Title: Metallized nanostructured chemicals alloyed into polymers

Abstract: Metallized nanostructured chemicals are incorporated at the molecular level as alloying agents for the reinforcement of polymer microstructures, including polymer coils, domains, chains, and segments. Direct blending processes are effective because of the tailorable compatibility of the metallized nanostructured chemicals with polymers.
