ABSTRACT.Nanotechnology is a fast-growing area, involving the fabrication and use of nano-sized materials and devices. Various nanocomposite materials play a significant important role in modern science and technology.  Many nanocomposites of different varieties have been developed over recent years. There is a great need and demand for these materials.  As the composite materials have an important industry and technological role , because the composites have interesting properties, which could be achieved either of the constituent material alone, also exhibiting simultaneously significant properties have been of great interest to modern science and technology.
