We get it – developing nanomaterials for product integration can be challenging. From optimizing surface chemistry in the lab for performance to ensuring those design attributes are then preserved during the scale-up and manufacturing processes.

Survey and Results

We asked our over 6,000 followers on LinkedIn (comprised of researchers, developers, engineers, and executives) what their biggest challenge is in working with nanomaterials? The options were nanomaterial design, product integration, nanomaterial scale-up, and manufacturing / affordability.

As the results show, Nanomaterial Scale-Up is the biggest challenge for most who voted – with the other three options not too far behind. This speaks to how common it is for teams to experience difficulties when developing nanomaterials for products, if that specialty is not accessible in-house.
