The Nanomaterials Directory 2014-2015 provides an in-depth guide to all nanomaterials producers in a single-volume, categorised by nanomaterials, types sold and countries where the sellers are based, in one easy-to-access publications. Numerous online directories and maps have been produced covering nanomaterials and nanotech companies but are either incomplete, out-dated, poor to navigate or inadequately categorised. […]

Nanoparticles are often defined as particles of less than 100nm in diameter. We classify nanoparticles to be particles less than 100nm in diameter that exhibit new or enhanced size-dependent properties compared with larger particles of the same material. Nanoparticles exist widely in the natural world: for example as the products of photochemical and volcanic activity, and created by plants and algae. They have also been created for thousands of years as products of combustion and food cooking, and more recently from vehicle exhausts. Deliberately manufactured nanoparticles, such as metal oxides, are by comparison in the minority.
