ASTM Sets Nano’s First Standard Definitions
By: Vance McCarthy

The most definitive document yet for setting a “common vocabulary” for the growing number of nanoscience-related disciplines has been published by the ASTM International. But, experts say the document will set some needed rules-of-the-road for the next-generation of multidiscipline nanoscience research.

The ASTM’s “Standard Terminology Relating to Nanotechnology” sets a standard definition from such common terms as aggregate, nano-, nanotechnology, nanoscale nanoparticle and even plain ol’ “particle.”
