What are Nano Materials ?

NanoMaterials - a Definition 

Nanomaterials are chemical substances or materials that are manufactured and used at a very small scale (down to 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair). Nanomaterials are developed to exhibit novel characteristics (such as increased strength, chemical reactivity or conductivity) compared to the same material without nanoscale features. Hundreds of products containing nanomaterials are already in use. Examples are batteries, coatings, anti-bacterial clothing etc. Analysts expect markets to grow to hundreds of billions of Euros by 2015. Nano innovation will be seen in many sectors including public health, information society, industry, innovation, environment, energy, transport, security and space

Good things come in small packages. the unique properties of nanomaterials and structures on the nanometer scale have sparked the attention of materials developers. Incremental shifts in product performance using these materials-for example, as fillers in plastics, as coatings on surfaces, and as UV-protectants in cosmetics-are already occurring. The technology holds more promise for the future, though, and is expected to bring more disruptive changes to both products and markets.

Nanomaterials - Applications for Nanotechnology

Nanomaterials is a field that takes a materials science-based approach to nanotechnology. It studies materials with morphological features on the nanoscale, and especially those that have special properties stemming from their nanoscale dimensions. An important aspect of nanotechnology is the vastly increased ratio of surface area to volume present in many nanoscale materials, which makes possible new quantum mechanical effects.

It studies materials with morphological features on the nanoscale

One example is the “quantum size effect” where the electronic properties of solids are altered with great reductions in particle size. Novel mechanical properties of nanomaterials is a subject of nanomechanics research. Broadly speaking, nanotechnology is the synthesis and application of ideas from science and engineering towards the understanding and production of novel materials and devices. These products generally make copious use of physical properties associated with small scales.
