Nanomaterials on a fundamental level are materials of which a solitary unit is measured (in no less than one measurement) somewhere around 1 and 1000 nanometers (10−9 meter) however is typically 1—100 nm.
Nanomaterials exploration takes a materials science-based methodology to nanotechnology, leveraging advances in materials metrology and blend which have been produced in backing of microfabrication examination. Materials with structure at the nanoscale frequently have exceptional optical, electronic or mechanical property. Nanomaterials are not simply another step in the miniaturization of materials. They often require very different production approaches. There are several processes to create nanomaterials, classified as ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’. Although many nanomaterials are currently at the laboratory stage of manufacture, a few of them are being commercialized.
