Among various nanofillers for composite systems, this article collectively summarizes several carbon-based fillers and inorganic fillers, both attracting great attention recently in both the academia and industry for the advent of highly integrated electronic device and energy storage systems. The carbon-based fillers include carbon nanotube, graphene, and graphene oxide, which are considered to open a new era of functionalized nanocomposite systems in the near future. The inorganic nanofillers include layered silicate, aluminum nitride, and boron nitride, which could substantially change mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of the composite materials.
