Nanomaterial synthesis, end-product formulation, and nanomaterials’ wide range of applications are outpacing regulations and standard methods. No matter what your nano-end-product application may be, from food to pharmaceuticals to petrochemicals, there are seven key characteristics and two additional qualities that are unique to nanomaterials. One or more of these characteristics or qualities may be very important to characterize for control, during the manufacturing process. In addition to meeting end-product specifications, controlling nanomaterials during the manufacturing-process will minimize process scrap and waste. Process waste has always been a manufacturing issue, but nano-waste and scrap present different issues than bulk-waste and scrap. There is increasing review and concern within industry and the environmental field as to the fate, transport, and transformation of nanomaterials in the environment. Risk areas that can be addressed through nanomaterial-characterization in the manufacturing process are discussed in this paper.
