Nanophase Announces Record First Quarter Revenue

ROMEOVILLE, IL | Posted on April 11th, 2007

Nanophase Technologies (Nasdaq: NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and
advanced nanoengineered products, announced that first quarter 2007 revenue
was approximately $2.9 million (unaudited), representing 45% year-over-year
growth compared with first quarter 2006. This is the highest quarterly
revenue in the company's history, and the company's ninth consecutive
quarter of record annual quarter-over-quarter revenues.

"Nanophase started the new year with a solid pipeline of demand,
enabling us to continue the revenue growth experienced during 2006," stated
Joseph Cross, Nanophase's president and CEO. "This quarter's revenue is a
new benchmark for the company, exceeding our best quarter in 2006 by about
25%. We continue to ramp up production and have the capacity to absorb
higher production levels depending on product mix. We anticipate growth in
architectural and industrial coatings during 2007 and are optimistic about
the growth potential for several of our product lines. We also believe that
the momentum in our revenue underscores the effectiveness of our business

During the quarter, Nanophase received an additional United States
patent, covering nanostructured polymeric compositions with enhanced
optical properties, for use in its industrial coatings business through the
Company's partnership with BYK Chemie, one of the world's leading suppliers
of additives for coatings, printing inks and plastics. Substantially
transparent, abrasion and wear-resistant nanoparticle coatings have
numerous potential applications in many commercial markets. BYK Chemie and
Nanophase continue working to develop new products based on this patented
technology for multiple applications in a variety of markets.

Nanophase noted that it was releasing revenue prior to its normal
earnings release schedule to accommodate the Company's planned discussions
during the NanoBusiness Alliance Investor Forum scheduled for April 15-17,
