Classification of Nanomaterials, The Four Main Types of Intentionally Produced Nanomaterials

Abstract:
For the purpose of this article, most current nanomaterials could be organized into four types:

Carbon Based Materials

Metal Based Materials

Dendrimers

Composites
Carbon Based Materials

These nanomaterials are composed mostly of carbon, most commonly taking the form of a hollow spheres, ellipsoids, or tubes. Spherical and ellipsoidal carbon nanomaterials are referred to as fullerenes, while cylindrical ones are called nanotubes. These particles have many potential applications, including improved films and coatings, stronger and lighter materials, and applications in electronics.
