Metallic Nano-Materials and Nanostructures: Development of Technology Roadmap
Current and prospective trends in application of metallic nanomaterials have been studied. The study has been conducted within the Nanoroad SME European project – as the first step for a roadmap for industrial application of nanomaterials. The web page of the project is http://www.nanoroad.net/. The present report presents an analysis of patents, papers, national and European projects in the field of nano-metals, and also an analysis of the present state of research and expected trends in this domain. Based on the performed analysis a data base of nanomaterials has been developed as well as roadmaps with expected time to applications. It can be found under http://bourgogne.arist.tm.fr/nanoroadsme/home/. The roadmap is mainly addressed to SMEs to help them to decide about applications or production of nanomaterials.
