Nanoparticles and Nanolayers In Commercial Applications

  • Ralf Anselmann


This paper presents particulate and layered materials used in industry with at least one dimension under 500 nm. The objective is to bring to the attention of researchers areas of investigation where new properties and phenomena may manifest. The most relevant materials are natural and synthetic platelets and spherical and coated silica particles.
