Nanotechnology is science, engineering or technology conducted at the nano-scale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers; yet extends into the micron range, when clusters and aggregates are considered.

The European definition is along the lines of   ‘an insoluble or biopersistant and intentionally manufactured material with one or more external dimensions, or an internal structure, on the scale from 1 to 100 nm’. This has significant implications in Medicines, Cosmetics and a wide range of consumer products.

Particular Sciences have long worked in the Nano area, providing specialist products and support for several technologies used by workers in the field. These are produced by more than one of our suppliers so we select some here to help you find them. Some of these are market leaders, some are invaluable tools of the trade and others…maybe you should take a look at:
