NOVELTY – Nanocomposite polymer comprises polymer, surfactant, nanoparticles and water. USE – Nanocomposite polymer for preparing reinforcement, flame retardant, plasticizer, insulator, conductor, stabilizer, a bactericide and biodegradation accelerator (claimed). ADVANTAGE – The nanocomposite polymer has high hardness, elasticity, impact resistance and tensile strength. DETAILED DESCRIPTION – An INDEPENDENT CLAIM is also included for a method for preparing nanocomposite polymer, which involves: (A) mixing a surfactant, nanoparticle and polymer to obtain an aqueous mixture; (B) homogenizing the aqueous mixture; (C) drying the homogenized mixture; and (D) mixing the dried mixture to obtain finished product.
