Objectives The combination of inorganic nanoparticles with functional polymers is a very interesting research area, which finds broad variety of applications in areas such as catalysis, sensing, electronics, biomedicine, or food industry among others. These alternative hybrid architectures exhibit remarkable improved features due to the size dependence of their compounds, becoming a promising new generation of complex materials.
