We know that in today’s scenario, smart materials are in fame and are an important part of our daily life. Polymer nanocomposites (PNC) have attracted significant research and industrial interests due to their promising potential for versatile application. This nanocomposite technology has emerged from the field of engineering plastics and potentially expanded its application to structural materials, coatings, and packaging for medical products and electronic and photonic devices. The possibility of electrical and thermal conduction in a polymer matrix with low amounts of nanoparticles brings opportunities for highly demanding applications such as electrical conductors, heat exchangers, sensors, and actuators. The development of smart polymer nanocomposite (SPN) has been an area of high scientific and industrial interest in recent years, due to fantastic improvements achieved in these materials. SPN found potential applications in shape memory, self-healing, self-healing, self-cleaning, and energy harvesting. This paper mainly focuses on the most recent advances in polymer nanocomposites for everyday life applications, which are practically important and extremely useful. The applications of PNC are endless and still increasing rapidly due to their below-average cost and ease of manufacture. They make our lives more convenient and enjoyable. The main target is to study the applications of electrical and thermal properties of PNC for smart electronics materials.

Keywords: Actuators, Smart polymer nanocomposite, Self-healing polymer, Sensors.
