When investigating the dielectric properties of nanodielectrics; the synthesis and processing of the materials are often neglected. It seems intuitive to think that the physical properties of the constituent parts of an insulation material directly lead to the physical properties of a composite material. However, as has been shown in the literature, nanodielectrics are more than just the sum of their parts. Compounding of dielectric nanocomposites is a complex endeavor, and it seems that nanodielectrics can only unleash their full potential when the filler material is distributed evenly throughout the host material. This article gives an overview of common preparation methods and discusses the influence of the preparation method on the microstructure.
