Molecular nanomaterials, including nanotubes (CNT), carbon nanofibers (CNF), nano metal oxide, and nano metal particles, have the potential to demonstrate novel properties such as increased electrical, thermal, mechanical, and magnetic properties. This will lead to advanced applications and implementation in the use of molecular nanomaterial for many applications, in both defense and domestic. Recent discoveries regarding the homogeneously dispersing carbon nano material and metal oxide in the nano scale through the electrostatic force, has shown a promising future for this new concept to be commercialized. This method provides an easy and cost-effective way to fabricate the broad portfolio of products at large scales.
