Process optimisation is the key to smart materials
Researchers are now combining combinatorial chemistry methodologies with Nanotechnology to develop novel smart materials with higher performance standards. 'Nanotechnology brings with it the possibilities of designing, altering, and controlling material structure at nanoscale levels in order to enhance material performance and process efficacy,' explains Nadkarny.
Nanotechnology is finding wide applications in varying products such as sensors and electronic devices, and promises to push smart materials technology into diverse industries.
