Transparency in Nano Product Commercialization

nanoparticles, dispersion, transparency, products

Early stage development and commercialisation of nanotechnology products are focussed on taking full advantage of the enhanced properties offered by nanoparticles. Transparency is a key example of a unique property of nanoparticles, allowing the full range of properties available to conventional opaque materials to be utilised in transparent products ranging from sunscreens to photonic devices. Transparent functional coatings that provide UV protection, refractive index matching, scratch resistance, conductivity, etc., in addition to transparency, are amongst the first nanotechnology products to be commercialised. Key to meeting the required level of transparency is the attainment of monodispersed nanoparticles in the product. The formation of individually separated nanoparticles during synthesis and maintaining true particle dispersion through to the final product is a key challenge that must be addressed by manufacturers of transparent functional coatings. In this paper we review the key factors that determine product quality, focussing on nanoparticle synthesis, coating and dispersion issues. Examples of nanoparticle enhanced products utilising nano dispersions incorporating nanoparticles manufactured by Advanced Nanotechnology’s MCPTM solid-state nanoparticle technology will be discussed.
