Why are nanomaterials used?

Home FAQNanomaterials exhibit a range of novel properties that are often vastly different from their larger-scale counterparts, including high tensile strength, low weight, high electrical and thermal conductivity and unique electronic properties. This makes them attractive for use in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications, and numerous nano-enabled products are already on the market including packaging, paints, sunscreens, cosmetics, nanomedicines, and semiconductors, to name but a few.
