Abstract

Summary: In situ synthesis of silver/epoxy nanocomposites was achieved by UV-induced polymerization through a simultaneous photoinduced electron transfer and cationic polymerization processes. The evolution of dielectric properties with frequency and NP content seem to indicate that the nanocomposites of this study remain below the percolation threshold.
