Measuring nanoparticle concentration and chemistry

Nanoparticles are increasingly used in innovative products manufactured by advanced industries and provideenhanced, unique properties of great commercial and societal value. The demand for high performancematerials places increasingly stringent tolerances on the properties of nanoparticles. The major unmetmetrological needs in the production of high quality nanomaterials are the measurement of particles’concentration surface chemistry. These measurements are critical to the performance of novel materials inproducts. To underpin trade and the supply chain for these novel materials, this project focused on thedevelopment of reference materials, compared the performance of different techniques, initiated prenormalisationstudies and provided input to internationally accepted standards.
