Particles that are “nanosize” can be created using many different types of material. Their full potential is realized when they are included in composites. With estimates of over 100,000 metric tons consumed worldwide, nanocomposites are in markets ranging from bottling and motor vehicles to electronics and construction. The field represents some of the most significant advances in advanced manufacturing and materials science. This symposium is focused on novel and commercially-relevant properties of nano-composites and on the technologies that have been developed to create and manufacture these nanocomposite materials.
