Nanoparticles, Nanotubes and Nanocomposites

Abstract:
Federal funding for nanotechnology research and development has increased six-fold, from $116 million (USD) in 1997 to an estimated $961 million in 2004. In the U.S. alone, the FY 2005 budget request that President George W. Bush has sent to Congress calls for a total National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) budget of $982 million, which represents a 2 percent increase. With all this research, what has come out of the R&D pipeline ready for commercial application? As it turns out, plenty. The following are new and, surprisingly, not-so-new applications of two types of nanotechnology: ceramic nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes, used as highly functional fillers/additives in polymer products of interest to composites manufacturers.
