Hybrid nanocomposites have appealing chemical and physical properties and are used on a large scale worldwide. Graphene-nanoparticles (G-NP) hybrid fillers and their composites have particularly gained attention among researchers in recent times, as the incorporation of nanoparticles (NP) into the chemically derived graphene (G) in hybrid fillers open for new applications. This is as a result of the synergetic properties of the obtained materials, such as biodegradability, low density, physical and chemical structure, etc. The novelty of this chapter is to present a review of the recent studies of G-NP hybrid filler’s characteristics and their composites using the most fundamental characterization techniques. Our literature review examines various published findings regarding, among others, surface, mechanical and thermal properties in order to determine the performance of the fillers. Therefore, we briefly reviewed their basic structure and surface modifications of G-NP hybrid fillers and nanocomposites. The main output is to study and review techniques frequently reported in the literature to examine their structure and properties, we exemplified and discussed in this chapter key results collected from SEM, AFM, TEM, HRTEM, FTIR, UV-vis, Raman, XRD, XPS, SEM, TGA-DTA, DMA and tensile analyses. To help the readers, this chapter is subdivided into three sections covering a state-of-the-art of the most recent hybrid fillers, their preparation and characterization. The overall objective of this chapter is to dress a relationship between their structure and property to provide key indicators and future directions for their efficient large-scale production of G-NP hybrid nanocomposite with unique characteristics for different applications.
