Why Nanomaterials?

Nanomaterials have gained a tremendous amount of traction in the last two decades because of the widely differing properties that are obtainable compared to their bulk counterparts. With their exciting new properties nanomaterials are, ultimately, becoming door openers – enabling both new technologies and revolutionary improvements to current technologies.  Depending on the application, the particle size, distribution, morphology, and purity can have a significant influence on the physical, thermal, structural, and/or optical properties of the end product.  The photograph below illustrates the variation in optical properties for various silica nanoparticle dispersions.  The solutions range from completely clear to totally opaque...
