5 Welcome NanoCentral back to the future As you will know, NanoCentral ceased to be funded by the Technology Strategy Board at the end of June It signed off its public sector existence in style at NanoMaterials2011, hosted in association with IntertechPira. Building on its unique expertise and extensive marketing database of personal contacts, NanoCentral will continue to provide a significant proportion of its current public sector service offer. This was the fifth business to business conference in the NanoMaterials series and, as well as plenary sessions covering The Commercial Exploitation of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials and Achieving Success in Nanomaterials, there were three parallel themes each day focusing on Novel Applications for Nanotechnology, Innovations in the Production of Nanomaterials and Enablers of Successful Commercialisation: Policy, Business and Finance. NanoMaterials2011 was the most international event in the series yet staged with 38 speakers featured, of which six were from the US, nine from Europe and one each from Japan and Australia. Keynote addresses were provided by Dr Hilary Lackritz of Lockheed Martin, Doug Jamison of Harris and Harris Group, Kate Le Strange of the OECD, Russell Maguire of Boeing and Prof Robert Falkner of the London School of Economics - all in all an event to remember. However, as promised last year this is not the end of the road. NanoCentral will continue its mission to promote the safe and beneficial commercialisation of nanomaterials in the albeit at a lower key. Building on its unique expertise and extensive marketing database of personal contacts, NanoCentral will continue to provide a significant proportion of its current public sector service offer including marketing of core and associate provider capablities, stimulation of the UK nanotechnology and nanomaterial markets and development of the UK nanomaterial supply chain. In addition, NanoCentral will also offer an integrated group of valueadded services to the nanotechnology and nanomaterials communities. These include: NANOPERSPECTIVE RESOURCE GUIDE NanoCentral continues its partnership with Distinctive Publishing to promote the first free on desk compendium of who is who in micro and nanotechnology. Once again in 2012, NanoPerspective has increased its European coverage and will soon extend its coverage to the USA and APAC. UKIF REWARDS NanoCentral is supporting the UK Innovation Forum (UKIF), a membership forum that is dedicated to supporting collaboration within the UK innovation community, in the successful commercialisation of intellectual property via Rewards, a web based open innovation platform which puts organisations seeking solutions to technical problems in contact with solution providers.

6 NanoCentral s Nanomaterial The most significant recent developments in nanomaterials must be those related to graphene, a new class of two-dimensional material with unique properties. Graphene can turn materials into conductors of electricity, make them more heat resistant and make them more mechanically robust. Within electronics, graphene transistors are predicted to be substantially faster than silicon transistors, enabling more efficient computers. In recognition of the importance of graphene, Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim of the University of Manchester won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 for isolating and measuring its properties. In October this year, the UK government signalled its belief in the commercial importance of graphene by announcing a 50M investment to fund a Global Research and Technology Hub at the University of Manchester to accelerate its commercialisation. Earlier in the year, in January, Rusnano s announced a $700M investment in Plastic Logic to create the latter s second volume production facility for its next-generation nano-enabled plastic electronic displays and establish a plastic electronics industry in Russia. Also within the Electronics sector, Omni-Lite in February reported its first order for a nano-crystalline battery programme from a hybrid battery manufacturer. Omni-Lite s batteries are based on a propriety nanotechnology. This order was for the engineering, tooling and product development aspects of a programme due to culminate in production at the start of Q In May, IBM opened the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Centre located on the campus of IBM Research in Zurich. This $90M facility is based on the premise of open collaboration between IBM scientists and external partners. Its centerpiece is a 10-year strategic partnership in nanoscience between IBM and ETH Zurich. In May, Rusnano was again in the news, announcing another joint venture, this time with Crocus Technology, a leading developer of MRAM technology. Rusnano agreed to contribute $140M of a total investment of $300M to form Crocus Nano Electronics (CNE). CNE will build an advanced MRAM facility in Russia, capable of manufacturing medium to high density MRAM products based on Crocus Thermal Assisted Switching (TAS) MRAM technology initially at 90nm and 65nm lithographies. Subsequently, an upgrade to 45nm lithography is planned. Within the Aerospace sector, EasyJet, the UK s largest airline, announced in February that it was to be the first commercial airline to trial a revolutionary ultra thin TripleO coating coating on its aircraft aimed at reducing the build up of debris on the aircraft s structure, leading edge and other surfaces. Reducing this build up reduces drag, thereby increasing fuel efficiency. The use of such nano-enabled coatings, cross-linked to the aeroplane s painted surface, is not new however. They have been used on US military aircraft for at least 25 years. Whilst only adding ca 120g to the weight of 6 success through nanomaterials

7 Review of 2011 the aeroplane, it is estimated that drag can be reduced by 39%, enabling Easyjet s overall fuel consumption to be reduced by 1 2 per cent. Also within Aerospace, the long awaited Dreamliner from Boeing, finally went into service in October. It is reported to use ca. 20% less fuel as a result of significant effort put into reducing the overall weight of the aeroplane. A major part of the means by which this has been achieved has been via the use of substantial quantities of nano composites. In the Construction sector, ItN Nanovation completed a major project in Saudi Arabia in March installing its CFM Systems nanoceramic-based filtration system for water purification. The CFM Systems filter units are used to pre-treat water from deep wells so that it can be subsequently purified into clean drinking water using reverse osmosis. Tests have shown that pre-filtration with CFM Systems provides significant advantages over conventional polymer-based hollow fibre membranes and sandbased filtration, even at high temperatures and high iron and manganese concentrations. The CFM Systems filter units also last considerably longer than conventional polymer membranes for pre-filtration. In addition, their use extends the operating life of the downstream reverse osmosis membranes. It is claimed that drinking water throughput is increased by some 20 percent using CFM Systems filter units which is of great importance given the relatively high cost of reverse osmosis plants for water purification. Also in Construction, Rusnano in June signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Lafarge to develop innovative and sustainable construction materials. These will include high performance mineral additives and fillers supplying energy efficiency, durability and environmental safety. Rusnano has also been active in the Coatings sector, creating a joint venture with Alcoa in June. The joint venture will produce a broad range of products including anti-icing, nano-structured coatings for ground cables, wires and other components of power transmission lines. The project will also produce next-generation wires and cables with improved conductivity and anti-icing properties. Also in June, Frost and Sullivan awarded its New Product Innovation Award to Nanopool for its liquid glass technology. Nanopool s application of silicon dioxide at the nanometre scale as an antimicrobial coating yields high disinfectant properties, previously achieved only by silver nanocoatings. However, while the toxicity of silver has been an area of concern, liquid glass has been subjected to several clinical tests and found to be completely biocompatible. In addition, the nanocoating product is claimed to offer other benefits: it is repellent to water and dirt, making coated surfaces easy to clean and maintain. The coating is transparent rendering it almost invisible and maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the original surface. It is also resistant to heat and cold, functioning at a wide range of temperatures (-150 to +4500C). This enables it to be used in appliances such as ovens and air conditioners. It is highly durable: the coating can protect a surface for more than ten years, thereby minimising maintenance costs. Nanopools liquid glass finds application in a diverse range of market sectors including agriculture, aerospace, building & construction, automotive, packaging and retail. P2i, in October, won an international award at the 2011 International Business Awards for being the Most Innovative Company in Europe. This followed the announcement in February, that it had built its first high-capacity processing machine, the Aridion 400, to apply invisible NanoPerspective 7

8 nanoscopic polymer protective coatings. Such coatings dramatically lower the surface energy of a substrate, so that when liquids come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off. The result is a dramatic reduction in corrosion and electrochemical migration, even after shower, salt-fog and water submersion testing. The Aridion protection technology is targeted at applications in consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and MP3 players. However, P2i s consumer product equivalent of Aridion, ion-mask, has also found increasing application, being adopted by Scott Sports (a provider of equipment and apparel for bikes, wintersport, motorsport and running) and Teva (the manufacturer of Links mountain bike shoes). Still in Coatings, Nanogate in October reported that it had obtained a multi-million pound three year contract to supply headlight lenses with an innovative sustainable de-mist coating to Jaguar and Land Rover. Within the inks market, Intrinsiq Nanomaterials launched in April a, stable, cost effective, high solids copper screen print ink formulation designed for photonic curing at room temperature in air. The conductivities and performance of its product, Intrinsiq CP001, are typically comparable with commercially available silver pastes. Although the initial product is designed for use on paper substrates, products optimised for use on other substrates are to follow. As the volume of nanomaterials traded increases, impetus for the development of trading specifications is also increasing, not least with the advent of the Integrated Nano-Science & Commodity Exchange (INSCX ). This trading platform became live in November 2010 and has already achieved a multi million monthly turnover. Significantly, INSCX is seeing substantial demand for nanomaterials from the low carbon sector, particularly for minerals and oxides associated with battery manufacture. Of equal interest is the number of companies from the far-east and Russia seeking to sell primary nanomaterials. Of course significant interest in the trade of nanomaterials for batteries and, in particular rare earth minerals, is not without issues. China is the origin of a large percentage of such materials and has been widely reported to be taking a strategic view to their export. Financial support for nanomaterials in the UK has proved a mixed picture. In April, Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd., the UK-based developers of nanopore technology for the direct, electronic analysis of single molecules, announced that it had raised 25 million in new funding via a private placement of ordinary shares in the Company. In July, IOTA Nanosolutions announced that it had completed a financing round, in which the Qatar Islamic Bank had joined Unilever Ventures in supporting the development of their proprietary nanodispersion formulation technology. However, in the same month Nanoco, a UK producer of quantum dots indicated that if more public cash was not forthcoming, there was a significant possibility that its first commercial production operations could be located in Japan or Singapore. In the US, the financial picture has been more positive. Harris & Harris Group Inc. in February invested $750,000 in Nano-Terra Inc. in receipt of warrants. Nano Terra is a nano- and micro-technology development company that builds new business value by applying its interdisciplinary expertise, nano- and micro-technology toolset and know-how to the commercial problems of customers. In August, Harris & Harris Group Inc invested $1,666,667 million in HzO, Inc., as part of a $7 million financing. H 2 O, Inc. manufactures nanoscale, industrial coatings that protect electronics against damage caused by exposure to water, the major cause of lost functionality in electronics. The coating is transparent and can be applied to a variety of surfaces including plastic, metal and glass. In addition to being water repellent, the coating can also repel oils, synthetic fluids, hazardous materials, dust and dirt. H 2 O Inc. is planning to launch its first coated consumer electronic devices with its partner ZAGG Inc. in the near term and intends to target a diverse range of markets including automotive, military devices and vehicles and solar energy. From the preceding, you will see that the number of nano-enabled products continues to increase and their applications are becoming more and more mainstream. As this trend accelerates, structures well known in more established markets, such as trading exchanges will develop. With the development of physical exchanges, there will be a drive to standardised material specifications and hence multi-sourcing. Also, considerations of the safety of nanomaterials and nano-enabled products will become more prominent within the public s mind. It is therefore opportune that this year has seen the merger of AssuredNano and nanotox to create a global force in the provision of Occupational, Environmental, Health & Safety (OEHS) for nanomaterials and nano-enabled products. Nano-enabled products are now rapidly taking off and NanoCentral continues to assist their safe, benefical commercialisation. 8 success through nanomaterials

9 Intertek MSG Meeting all your materials characterisation needs Intertek MSG is playing a major role in the NanoCentral network as the core provider of characterisation and measurement, bringing to the collaboration many years of experience in the analysis of nanomaterials.. Developments in nanotechnology are concerned with two issues - the design and manufacture of small particles, and the incorporation of these particles in a controlled manner into a liquid or solid carrier matrix. Of course the purpose is to produce materials where the inclusion of the nanoparticles leads to an improvement of the physical properties of the final materials. Intertek MSG can contribute, through the provision of detailed analysis, to both areas. NANOPARTICLES Intertek MSG has a comprehensive array of tools for the measurement of nanoparticle properties, including: n Analysis of particle size and morphology using electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, photon cross-correlation spectroscopy and a Disc Centrifuge allowing quantitative analysis of particles as small as a few nanometres. n Application of image analysis to generate quantitative information on size and shape distributions. n Carbon nanotubes analysis using raman spectroscopy to monitor tube diameter and sample purity, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and elemental analysis to provide information on sample purity or catalyst residue content. n Coating analysis using spectroscopic techniques, or by surface analysis. NANODISPERSIONS The particle sizing techniques mentioned above can equally be applied to dispersions of particles although for the PCCS and disc centrifuge methods it will in general be necessary to generate dilute solutions before reproducible results can be obtained. In order to directly assess concentrated dispersions new electron microscopy instrumentation, combining low-vacuum imaging with a wet- STEM stage, has been recently introduced at MSG. The smaller the size of a particle or feature, the more intrusive and misleading the presence of the conductive coating that is required for conventional SEM analysis - and the more welcome its absence! Several modes of operation of the new instrument circumvent this issue. In addition, beam deceleration emphasises very fine surface detail at the expense of unwanted subsurface interactions. The presence of scanning transmission electron detectors (STEM) allows us to form images using electrons passing through a thin sample, and the WetSTEM system means that we can now image truly wet samples (relative humidity conditions up to 100%), and materials otherwise inaccessible by conventional electron microscopy for example giving us access to in-situ studies of aggregation of nanoparticles within a dispersion during a drying process. Complementary techniques, such as x-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods can provide additional information on the composite morphology, and quantify aspects of homogeneity or orientation. In particular, MSG s extensive capabilities in Chemical Imaging allow us to study, and display, the variation in chemical composition of materials with sub-micron resolution. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES AND PRODUCT PERFORMANCE Intertek MSG can characterise a wide range of physical properties, in order to assess the impact of the incorporation of nanoparticles in a matrix. Capabilities include: n Mechanical properties (e.g. toughness, scratch resistance or impact strength) n Optical performance (clarity, reflectance, refractive index) n Electrical properties (conductivity, charge dissipation). Intertek MSG s expertise stretches well beyond the nanomaterials arena, and through our own scientists and those of the wider Intertek group of laboratories, we can service all your materials testing, characterisation and certification requirements.

12 Epigem The Fluence Centre Epigem provides customer support through invention, product development services and commercial manufacture of nanotechnology enabled products. Our 30 year track record of innovation spans all aspects of nanotechnology. For example: natural layer minerals delaminated into nanoplatelets, acting as anticoagulation stabilisers for high temperature dispersion polymerisation, enabled tonne production of engineering thermoplastics; nanostructured mould tools and high precision replication processes enable micro optics and printed electronics for touch screens, displays, lighting and renewable energy applications; nanowires grown within nanoporous films enable high sensitivity nanosensors for point of care diagnostics; protein and cell lined microfluidic devices enable in vitro models of blood capillaries for medical and drug discovery research. Epigem manufacture microfluidic consumable components, process control boards and printed and imprinted electronics for sensors and displays for commercial instrumentation used for bioanalysis and consumer electronics products. Extensive solution provision experience supports companies and Universities develop innovative new products and applications. Applications supported include medical research and diagnostics. For example: assays at the DNA, protein and cultured cell levels- for various screening environments; blood separation modules are providing both minimised sample collection and faster, higher precision analysis. Microfluidic fabrication processes are employed in manufacturing (as well as in products) in applications from chemicals synthesis to device fabrication. Epigem operate within the global community of technology developers concerned with product miniaturisation (motivation: smaller analyte and reagent quantities, point of care products) and process intensification (motivation: smaller, faster, more efficient, lower cost, environmentally better). Polymer microfabrication in the hands of Epigem has now become both multifunctional enabling the integration of optics, electronics, fluidics, magnetics, biology, etc. and multidomain enabling silicon sensors and control and data processing to be packaged within multilayer boards. This is enabling the miniaturisation of chemical and biological analysis and convergence with electronics and communications technology. Other applications include environment protection, forensics and food safety. The processes operated by Epigem enable chemicals, polymers and biochemicals to be synthesised, formulated, manipulated and delivered, in the form of thin coatings on rigid or flexible substrates and in the form of fine droplets processed within hair-like channels (100 microns dimensions) or delivered as sprays. Droplet processing within the laminar flow environment of microfluidics enables complex emulsions and encapsulation to be undertaken relevant to therapeutic and diagnostic healthcare. In 2006 Epigem were contracted by central Government, the EU and the Regional Development Agency, OneNE, to provide micro and nanotechnology open access services. To date, the Fluence Microfluidics Centre ( has supplied 4 million of R&D support to 80 companies and 63 Universities with 73% international sales. Much of the research of our clients is leading edge and has been published at Conferences and Journals. Multinational companies and start up companies have been assisted from the proof of concept stage through to commercialisation. The Fluence Centre also supplies microfluidic modules for training purposes to teach the basic microfluidic function including mixing, droplet generation and separation. The general strategy of Fluence is to develop and supply multilayer processor boards (like printed circuit boards plus biology, optics etc as well electrical circuits). A series of combinable functions are either connected within a single layer or between layers or between separate boards, where one board could be re-usable and another disposable. The functions provided can be fluidic. For example, liquid and gases can be pumped along channels and flow controlled using pneumatically actuated diaphragm valves. Electrical circuity can be integrated for connection to sensors or actuators or comprise electrodes for sensing or separation or pumping. Proprietary leak free sealing techniques enable fluid connection between modules at the micron scale. Polymer micro-optics can be integrated or optoelectronic light sources and detectors. The Centre uses a range of fabrication processes for creating these functional microstructures and for controlling surface chemistry such as channel wall wetting characteristics. Microfluidic fabrication processes for sheet, and roll to roll wet coating of film and foil, are also being used to develop high volume polymer electronics products such as flexible displays that themselves could in the future become integrated with bioelectronic multiparameter sensors.

15 Johnson Matthey Flame Spray Pyrolysis For the production of nanopowders Johnson Matthey, the international speciality chemicals company, has dedicated capability to produce a range of nanopowders using the flame spray pyrolysis technique. OTHER APPLICATIONS The method has the capacity to flexibly produce particles of different sizes and phase compositions. Examples of more complex and functional materials include CeO 2 and doped CeO 2 as polishing agents (Figure 3) for the microeletronics industry and catalysts, for example Pd-Al 2O 3 for the synthesis for fine chemicals (Figure 4). The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility can be used to produce a wide array of nanopowders ranging from single metal oxides such as Al 2O 3 to more complex mixed oxides. It has capacity of up to 100 g/hr and a number of process variables will enable the preparation of well-defined target materials. The creation of this development scale Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility was funded by a grant provided by the DTI under its Micro and Nano Technology ( MNT ) Network initiative. Housed at Johnson Matthey s Technology Centre near Reading, UK, it offers a unique facility for the production for nanomaterials. HOW IT WORKS Flame spray pyrolysis is a one step process where liquid feed - a metal precursor(s) dissolved in a solvent - is sprayed with an oxidising gas into a flame zone. The spray is combusted and the precursor(s) converted into nano sized metal or metal oxides particles, depending on the metal and the operating conditions. The technique is flexible and allows the use of a wide range of precursors, solvents and process conditions, thus providing control over particle size and composition. Flame spray pyrolysis is versatile technique for producing nanoparticles and can be used to make metal, metal oxide and more complex nanoparticle materials. Johnson Matthey has specialised in using the technique to make materials of interest to its businesses and has developed considerable in-house expertise in this area. This knowledge is transferable into other application areas. MATERIALS AVAILABLE TO DATE The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility has been used to produce zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticle powders which find application as UV barriers; TEM micrographs of the material are shown in Figure 1. The UV barrier effectiveness of a commercially available ZnO nanomaterial has been compared with one produced using Johnson Matthey s flame spray pyrolysis equipment. FIGURE 1 TEM micrographs of ZnO nanomaterials prepared by flame spray pyrolysis Figure 2 shows the spectra of both ZnO nanomaterials. It is important to note that no stabiliser was used. As expected for UV-barrier materials, no transmission (T%) is observed for both products in the UV region. In the visible region, however, a Johnson Matthey flame made ZnO material shows increased transparency properties with higher T%. This is in agreement with the small particle size revealed by TEM analysis and the characteristic ease at dispersing the flame spray material in liquid media. FIGURE 2 UV-vis spectra of ZnO nanopowders (0.02 wt% ZnO suspensions in H 2 O) The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility has been used to synthesise other materials as detailed in Table 1 and these are available to purchase from Johnson Matthey.

16 Primary Dispersions Ltd Customised Nanodispersions Primary Dispersions Founded in 2008 as a spin-out from the Centre for Process Innovation, Primary Dispersions Limited (PDL) has developed an advanced and disruptive milling technology ( ConCor ) in collaboration with their technology partners, Maelstrom Advanced Process Technology (Maelstrom APT). PDL have recently moved into state-of-the art laboratory/production facilities in the Innovation Accelerator at Wilton Centre on Teesside. From within these ultra-modern facilities PDL can offer: n Customised development of nanoparticulate dispersions or ultra-stable emulsions. n Toll manufacturing of your materials to your specification. n Licensing of patented ConCor technology and process know-how. Backing up this customised development and/or toll processing offer is an extensive suite of dispersion characterisation equipment such as: n Particle sizing: Horiba LA 950 (size range 10nm to 3mm) n UV / Vis Spectrometry n IR Spectrometry n Optical Microscopy n Fluorescence Microscopy n Viscometry: Carri-Med CSL-500 Dynamic Shear Rheometer has developed over the past five years, it has become apparent that one of the major barriers to the commercialisation of nanomaterials is the inherent difficulty in dispersing them to discrete primary particles. Usually, long-established dispersion methods, such as bead mills and high intensity fluid processors are used in this process and the evidence suggests that these techniques have limitations with regard to fully dispersing nanoparticles. If full dispersion is not achieved, nanomaterials will not deliver the cost-performance benefits required to justify their additional processing costs. ConCor technology can overcome these problems and deliver the benefits to you. One of the key technical barriers to the large scale commercial uptake of nanomaterials is the lack of a process technology capable of creating long term stable dispersions at the 1 10nm level. ConCor technology solves these problems, by providing unprecedented levels of localised shear to disrupt agglomeration and initiate stability. This will help to unlock the full potential of these exciting materials and markets. Nanomaterials are forecast to play an increasingly crucial role in market sectors as diverse as pharmaceuticals, plastics, inks, coatings, foods, consumer products (including packaging) and electronics. Their use offers enormous potential for new product innovation. However, a number of technical issues are limiting the benefits achievable from current and new nanomaterials, hampering their introduction. As the nanomaterials market 16 success through nanomaterials

17 ConCor Technology One of the most significant problems holding back the successful application of nanomaterials is difficulty in achieving optimal dispersion. Whilst nanomaterials synthesis has developed to the extent that there are now several different manufacturing routes available, by and large dispersion technology has remained the province of media mills and rotor/stator high shear mixers. Both of these technologies achieve de-agglomeration and some degree of de-aggregation, but are typically insufficient to deliver the significant economic benefits offered by well dispersed nanoparticles. The mechanical size reduction of particles in the sub-micron range presents significant technical challenges in terms of both mechanical design and subsequent chemical stabilisation. Furthermore, these challenges are increased when optimising at an industrial scale. Now, at last, a major breakthrough in dispersion technology is available. The novel technology developed by Primary Dispersions Ltd in collaboration with Maelstrom APT - ConCor - allows hard particles to be processed via mechanical compressive stresses and fluid extensional stresses, producing stable dispersions of nanoscale particles at a rate which is industrially significant. The design of the equipment allows for a wide range of materials such as ZnO, TiO 2, SiO 2, Al 2 O 3, Fe x O y, ZrSiO 4, metals such as Ag, Au and Cu, nanopigments (organic and inorganic) nanoclays and nanotubes to be processed within a wide range of carrier fluids (including flammables). Efficient heat extraction from the carrier fluid allows heat sensitive materials such as foodstuffs to be processed without the problem of denaturing. The ConCor technology is also particularly effective at creating emulsions with nanoscale droplets at a very wide range of viscosities. NanoPerspective 17

18 Design Concepts ConCor technology is unique in that it can operate in two different modes to apply energy to the particles to effect size reduction or de-agglomeration via direct mechanical stressing or fluid stressing. Direct stressing of the agglomerates themselves is the best method of deagglomeration, but the stress needs to be applied by a consistent means of crushing rather than random collisions (which is what occurs in media mills, for example). The energy application used in ball and bead milling - impact mechanical stressing - is an imprecise technique that also leads to contamination, as the beads used are worn down and fragments are introduced into the final product. Fluid stressing techniques (i.e. applying stress indirectly to the agglomerates through a carrier fluid) at theoretically desirable levels require power inputs that could potentially result in unmanageable temperature rises at the process rates required for industrial processing, which in turn leads to damaged or denatured products. Fluid stressing is therefore probably best applied cyclically with intermediate cooling in place, or as a final stage in processing. The ConCor mill operates in both direct and indirect stressing modes, offering greater flexibility in particle size and agglomerate reduction. This flexibility allows ConCor to process very hard materials, as well as very soft or even liquid/liquid systems or emulsions. The figure above shows the particle size distributions from a commercial zinc oxide dispersion in water. The red distribution was measured following initial wetting and mixing in a high shear mixer and clearly shows agglomeration centred around a diameter of 2.5µm. Following two passes through the ConCor mill in direct stressing mode, then a single pass in indirect stressing mode, the blue distribution was produced. It can be seen from the trace that a stable de-agglomerated dispersion was produced at 66nm, which exhibits a very tight distribution (100% particles < 110nm). Operating ConCor in its indirect stressing mode imparts significant further energy into the system. The difference between direct crushing and indirect stressing can be seen in the graph below, which shows the particle size distributions of two oil/water emulsions, one (blue) produced with direct stressing, and the second (red) produced by indirect stressing (both single passes through the ConCor mill) q(%) UnderSize(%) q(%) UnderSize(%) Diameter(µm) Diameter(µm) When processing a powder, the first stage is to create a slurry using, typically, a high shear mixer. The ConCor is then used to break down any large agglomerates using direct stress (which crushes them together) resulting in de-agglomeration. Once the large, relatively weakly bonded agglomerates have been broken down, the ConCor is switched to the indirect stressing mode which in effect pulls the smaller aggregates apart as the shear stress is transferred from the liquid to the aggregated particles. It can be clearly seen that there is a significant size reduction in the emulsion droplets with the increased energy imparted through fluid stressing. High throughput rates, low residence times and efficient heat extraction/cooling stop the product de-naturing. A very tight particle size distribution is produced, which results in a very stable emulsion (i.e. no creaming). When applied to emulsions with lower dispersed material volumes, it is possible to create very stable emulsions without the need for chemical stabilisation. KEY ADVANTAGES OF THIS TECHNOLOGY There are many advantages to using the ConCor technology, not least the fact that the technique enables the creation of new products based on nanomaterials and that it increases the activity of a range of nanomaterials already integrated into products (for example, enhanced sunscreens). 18 success through nanomaterials

19 The main advantages of ConCor technology over other techniques such as ball/bead milling and high pressure microfluidic devices are: 1. Increased milling energy: the ConCor technology submits a particle / agglomerate to a level of energy at least one order of magnitude greater than any competitive technology currently on the market. 2. Reduced capital expenditure costs: one ConCor mill can potentially replace several bead mills, or, at the very least, the need for different milling media charges. Also, many nanodispersion or emulsion processes require multiple stages using different equipment; in many cases ConCor could be used to replace several processing stages. 3. Significant reductions in operating costs: whilst a single particle is subjected to a higher energy than competitive technologies, the overall energy consumption is less, as the energy is transmitted into the particle in a far more efficient manner. 4. As there are no milling media to degrade, there is no pick up of contamination during processing. This is an important benefit in food and pharmaceutical markets. 5. Less stress introduced to the product matrix: application work has shown that, when using ConCor, the nanomaterials lattice experiences less stress while being processed. This can result in increased quality of end product; for example lower levels of discolouration in films and coatings. 6. Tight particle size distributions: the technique results in very tightly controlled product particle size distributions. This results in products of high quality and cuts down significantly on excess and waste materials, some of which can cost 1000 s per gram.

20 Light as Surface The goal of Light as Surface has been something of a quest, long sought after by lighting designers it has to date proved elusive. Imagine the outer casing of your mobile phone, the surface of your wall or even your furniture illuminating on demand. Responding to commands to change the ambiance of your surroundings to suit your mood or the time of day. Real Light as Surface is not just a very thin light box. It does not mean thin back lighting systems behind semi-transparent materials that allow conventional LED or cold cathode illumination to pass through. Nor indeed is it light bent through lenses and light guides to appear on some surface, neither is it a light projection onto a surface. Light as Surface actually means that the material itself, the plastic backing of your mobile phone, the composite surface your desk, the glass of your window or even the fabric of your cycling jacket becomes luminous. Such a reality is close, and PolyPhotonix is a pioneer in developing the process to make this a reality in the next few years. Organic Light Emitting Diodes OLED s is a new technology that has clear performance and efficiency advantages over traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting. It is different to the much acclaimed inorganic LED technology. An LED can only ever be a bulb inside a box; LED devices emit light photons in a narrow cone. OLED s on the other hand are large area light sources. Think of a sheet of thin, flexible plastic 12 square emitting light from all of it s surface, an ultra-thin light box, less than 1mm thick. It is this inherent thinness that excites the designer; the thickness of the product being dictated by the thickness of the material onto which the light is printed Although OLED technology has been around for sometime there have been considerable technical challenges that have prevented it from developing to full commercial viability, from the laboratory and into the factory. Recent advances have changed the field of development and we are now on the cusp of a major break through which will impact our lives in a number of ways. OLEDs are a tough business to be in and global companies worldwide are investing huge amounts of money to get on top of the fragile physics, chemistry and engineering required. A mass produced, competitively priced light tile is still some time off. Some of the large lighting companies 20 success through nanomaterials

21 POLYPHOTONIX are releasing glass tiles to designers and artists for evaluation and a few niche products are slowly becoming commercially available. Such niche products are the largest potential market because they enable many exciting new product concepts to be realised rather than replacing existing displays in familiar devices. Although over 200 organisations started to develop OLEDs we now have attrition with several leaving the business in frustration every year. Conventional OLEDs are made of multiple thin layers of organic materials with dedicated functions such as charge injection, charge transport and light emission. Typical thickness values for an individual layer is of the order of few tens of nanometers (about a tenth of the wavelength of visible light). Fabricating these extremely thin layers is a challenging proposition. Controlling the deposition of such thin layers requires advanced deposition techniques and equipment particularly when considering large area devices a few square inches and above. Thin film OLED devices are sensitive to the presence of particles and require a very high grade cleanroom environment. OLEDs are manufactured in clean-room conditions on small substrates, in a batch process system. The process uses expensive nitrogen chambers, has a low yield, slow throughputs and works to extremely tight tolerances. Whilst much of the invention and research into OLEDs has taken place in European institutions, much of the commercial development is currently in Asia. PolyPhotonix is a notable exception, a UK company, based at the PETEC facility near Durham. PolyPhotonix are developing radical new processes for the cost effective manufacture of OLEDs in high volumes and over large areas. It is striving to drive these costs down via a unique set of manufacturing technologies. Polyphotonix is developing Game Changing processes and solutions that tackle some of the complex manufacturing problems head on. As ever the Creative Industries have proven to be the early adopters of this technology, inventing elegant and clever designs to exploit niche market opportunities in fashion, design, automotive interiors as well as architecture. PolyPhotonix is working with clients from across the field, large blue chip international companies, to small niche deign projects. Designers are pushing the boundaries of what is possible, demonstrating the capabilities and inventiveness of the technology to a larger public. We now have a Science Fiction technology that offers flexible, conformable light that will be used in a multitude of ways, limited only by the imagination. It is clear that by a combination of intelligent design and novel cost effective manufacturing methods such as those being developed in the UK by Polyphotonix today s concept of light as surface is set to become tomorrows reality.

22 SapientSensors Customised screening diagnostics There is increasing emphasis within healthcare on the use of preventative medicine rather than reactive strategies and treatments. Such strategies deliver enhanced healthcare in a more efficient and cost effective manner. Point-of-care screening diagnostics provide an essential basis for this to be delivered. A major opportunity to deliver preventative medicine is via the wider use of hand held sensing instruments. These instruments allow ordinary medical staff, or even untrained personnel, to carry out rapid tests for infection at the initial consultation stage. Formerly such tests would have required costly laboratory analysis and incurred significant time delay. In addition, transportable point of care diagnostics permit screening to be carried out in locations remote from conventional pathology laboratory and healthcare facilities. This enables the monitoring of treatment strategies in the field plus more rigorous implementation. SapientSensors is building a new generation of low cost, rapid response, single use diagnostic sensors for application in hand held point of care devices, providing customised screening without requirement for pathology laboratory support. SapientSensors technology exploits the fact that each disease creates a unique set of chemicals in the body which are biomarkers and hence potential analytes of that disease. Biomarkers may be proteins, fragments of RNA, fragments of DNA, enzymes or simple small molecules. A suite of such analytes gives a bio-signature for the disease. The technology under development enables the accurate detection of such a bio-signature. In order to take its device to market, SapientSensors is integrating a spectrum of technologies ranging through biomarkers, functionalized surfaces, printed electronics and telephony. We are constantly searching for strategic partners with expertise which we can apply in these fields.

Scale bars = 500nm In 2006 the phosphor research group joined the Wolfson Centre. The centre has been in existence for around 40 years and has carried out research and development in all areas of inorganic phosphors during this time. We have built up a wealth of knowledge through our industrial and academic research on many aspects of nanomaterials synthesis, analysis, processing and their applications. This covers areas from control of particle morphologies and size, chemical reactivity to their physical properties such as optical and electronic behaviour, their processing and deposition into prototype devices. The team has key skills covering Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering. Recent work has involved studies on the structure and properties of polymer based nanocomposites, nanoparticle surface coatings, nano-particle biomarkers, luminescent nanomaterials and their production and surface plasmon resonance imaging development. An outline of some of these activities is given in the following paragraphs. NANOCOMPOSITIES CLAY PET COMPOSITES It has been shown that nanocomposites of PET with nanoclay particles can improve the gas barrier, thermal and mechanical properties of packaging items made from pure PET. This project investigated the effect of the nature and level of surfactant used in the conditioning of clay particles in PET nanocomposites. The project investigated the properties of melt-processed nanocomposites and indicated the optimum processing conditions for the production of packaging items from PET/ nanoclay composites. NANOPARTICLE SURFACE COATINGS BIO-CERAMIC SURFACE COATINGS This project was concerned with the production and properties of bio-ceramic surface coatings for orthopaedic implant components. Nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite (HA) were synthesised and put into 32 success through nanomaterials

33 a liquid suspension with carbon nanotubes. Sample surfaces were coated with the nano particle by electrophoretic deposition. Coatings approximately 200nm were laid onto the wear and load bearing surfaces of the metal implant. The coatings were then bonded to the surface by low temp (800 ºC) sintering treatment. It was the nature of the nanoparticles that enabled the sintering to take place at this temperature. The mechanical properties of the coatings were measured using nano indentation techniques. The resulting coatings had improved mechanical performance over pure HA coatings, in particular for the fracture toughness. CNT s have been shown to be bio compatible and the composite coatings therefore have potential for surgical implants. ANTIVIRAL SURFACE COATINGS Nano particles of a number of elements and compounds have been shown to have anti-viral properties. Surface coatings of nano particles that possessed the antiviral properties were produced. This involved deposition of the particles onto various types of surface and investigation of the level of bonding the coatings could achieve while maintaining anti-viral activity. The adhesion of the coatings to the surfaces was measured by a nanoscratch test. This work is now being further developed in industry. The image shows a nanoscratch track on a nanoparticle surface coating on a polymer substrate. The removal of the particles can be clearly seen.

34 Hosokawa Micron Ltd Nanopowder technology creating a new generation of particles Nanoparticles have huge potential across many industrial areas, particularly in electronics, information technologies and healthcare. Not only do they offer the attractive possibility of more effect for much less mass, but in many cases the product effect can be quite different from that achievable with micron sized particles, for example, their optical, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties show step changes at particular sub-micron particle size thresholds. Nanosized particles of various materials have a high potentiality to improve the performance of numerous kinds of products, or to create functional new materials. Their economic potential is therefore immense, although their advantages will need to be balanced against environmental effects which are in many cases still unknown. NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR FUNCTIONAL NANOPOWDERS Through extensive research and development Hosokawa has developed a new nanotechnology product portfolio featuring the latest product advances. The aim of Hosokawa has been to develop particle modification technologies which will increase customers product values by improving and adding functionality. Current technologies available for the manufacture of functional nanopowders are dispersion, mixing (normal, ordered or precision), coating, fusion, reactions (solid-solid surface), Mechano Chemical Bonding (MCB), shape control, agglomeration, nanogrinding, drying from nanoslurries and the measurement techniques employed in evaluating these materials. These technologies not only produce added value materials, but can also lead to process improvements by reducing process steps and energy costs. NOBILTA/MECHANOFUSION The Nobilta offers high speed powder mixing, dry process composing and powder surface modification using mechanical force. Mechanofusion preceisely mixes different types of particles by applying mechanically generated load to the material during processing. In addition it produces particle composites and controls the formation of particle shape. A pharmaceutical GMP system is available. NANOCREATER A continuous production system for nanosize metal oxide. The particle is created in a build up method that allows particle size to be adjusted from a few nm to a few hundred nm. Single component or multi-component particles can be created. NANOGRINDING Submicron and nanoparticles can be produced in a top to bottom process by wet milling. Agitated media mills such as the Alpine AHM Mill are used to grind such particles down to 10nm. The grinding process is carried out in a closed circuit and can take place in water or another suitable liquid. The Picoline series of eight individual machines are designed for the production of very small batches of between <1g and several grams. Because the principle of operation of the Picoline machines is the same as that of large production scale machines you can be confident in trouble free transfer of a manufacturing process developed using a Picoline machine to a production scale machine With machines for size reduction, classifying and mixing including Picojet, fluidised bed opposed jet mill; Picoliq, agitated ball mill; Picomix, batch mixer; Piconizer, spiral jet mill and Picoplex, impact mill, the Picoline series offers the widest wet and dry processing options for ultra small scale production on the market. DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING Once nano sized materials are produced either in liquid or gas phase, elements of classical powder technologies are applied to further process materials. These processes can involve drying, blending or agglomeration of the particulates. NANO CONTAINMENT With the advancement of nano technology and the perceived hazards associated with handling nano powders Hosokawa has developed a range of Containment equipment designed specifically to contain these ultra fine powders and offering containment levels below 1µg/m3.

38 Our world-leading metrology tools use Coherence Correlation Interferometry (CCI) technology to generate high resolution 3D images for non-contact surface measurement. Non-contact metrology plays an important role in the development and manufacture of many nanodevices. CCI is a modern non-contacting metrology tool with potentially important applications in the characterization of these devices. The technique is capable of providing surface roughness and step height measurements with sub-nanometre precision. It is also capable of measuring quantitatively surface texture and surface form in three dimensions. CCI is a scanning white light interferometry technique combining a coherence correlation algorithm with a high-resolution digital camera array to generate a 3D representation of a structure. It now has a new capability to measure both thin film and thick film thickness, from 50 nm to around 10 µm. The ability to give sub-nanometre vertical resolution and ~1 µm lateral resolution allows precision measurement of thin films in applications like solar PV, displays, metal films, optics, parylene coatings, polymer films, ophthalmic lens coatings, hardcoat measurements, thick resists and semiconductors. For more information visit Scanning the fringes through the surface and then processing the information gives a quantitative 3D image with 0.01 nm vertical resolution. The data can then be used to generate accurate quantitative parameters such as roughness, step height, feature width, form, volume, and angle. Recent developments also mean that thickness from semi-transparent thin films can now be measured. A special mode, called stitching can be used to provide information on a wider area, combining measurements taken in different zones of the sample. Major advantages include: 3D surface information in HD gives better representation of the surface structure than 2D No risk of scratches from stylus or AFM probes, so fragile surfaces are not affected or damaged by contact High speed measurement saves time in manufacturing, leading to higher yields More frequent sampling enables better control Easy to use, automatic measurement removes operator variability, with less training demands

Operating from a class research and development clean room facility based on the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories site, specialist services include: n Nanotechnology solutions in micro and nanoscale fabrication and prototyping n E Beam Lithography n Photolithography n Grey Scale Lithography n Mask making and CAD services n Deposition, etching and lift-off processes n Consultancy support NANOIMPRINT LITHOGRAPHY (NIL) - THE VERY LATEST WORD IN THE INDUSTRY For a number of years nanolithography has been used to produce 3-D structures for a variety of devices, including holographic images, nano devices, and micro lenses. The main restriction in moving the manufacture of these devices from the prototype stage into volume production is the time taken to produce large area structures using E-Beam lithography. Nanoimprint technology overcomes this problem and enables 3-D nano structures to be produced in volume and economically. The nanostructure pattern is formed in a polymer layer using E-beam lithography. This is then etched and coated to become a master template and then used to transfer the pattern onto a substrate using embossing techniques. Expert engineers at Qudos have considerable experience of using E-Beam lithography to manufacture 3-D structures down to below 50 nm combined with the etch and deposition capability needed to produce complete templates. Qudos are currently applying this to complex structures for both holographic images and device technology.

43 To help understand our capabilities in the field of nanotechnology here are two examples of projects that BHR Group are currently involved with; 1.DOMINO In 2007, after 4 years of previous research in nanoparticle dispersion, BHR Group launched its industrially run research consortium studying the dispersion and stabilisation of nanoparticles in liquids, DOMINO. This project is fully funded, and steered, by its industrial partners and investigates the incorporation and dispersion of metal oxides and nanoclays into liquids. The results of the project to date have yielded experimental design procedures, and computational models, to help the members understand the break-up mechanisms of the particles and the most effective dispersion devices, effects of the materials physical properties on break-up and required processing times and energy inputs. Annual voting by member companies ensures the work is always industrially relevant and addressing the current needs of its members (pictured left). 2.ADDNANO The overall objective of this collaborative project, partially funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme (NMP , under grant agreement n ) is to overcome the technological barriers involved in the large scale production of a new generation of lubricants incorporating nanomaterials. Within the project newly formulated lubricants containing nanoparticles are developed, their potential benefits tested and the scale-up of pilot lines for nanotechnology-based materials, components and processes is addressed. BHR Group has an active role in the Research & Technical Development activities of this project in addition to the management role. Our collaborative efforts within the consortium include the dispersion of nanoparticles in oils relevant to different applications, the testing of newly developed products on a bench scale engine, modelling and development of process design.

44 Process Industries The Chemical Industries Association represents 200 chemical companies from major multinationals to small independent producers and university spin offs. UK chemical industry is the UK s largest manufacturing export sector and that every day we contribute 30million to the balance of payments and with 500,000 jobs dependent on it we are an important cornerstone of the economy. We also underpin the rest of the manufacturing sector because our products are the materials that manufacturers use to make paints, car parts, fuel additives, fabrics, electronics, medicines, packaging everything essential to our everyday lives. In nanotechnology the UK chemical sector is leading the way in research, development and commercialisation of new nanomaterials and technologies which we are exporting around the world. Nanotechnology provides an ideal opportunity for the UK to develop its chemical industry and ensure that it remains economically sustainable. We can do this because we have a world class academic base combined with an industry that survives by being high-tech, cutting edge and high quality with a highly skilled workforce and existing infrastructure of chemical sites that can adapt and evolve. We would like to see a UK Manufacturing Strategy in which nanotechnologies is a fully integrated part. SOLUTIONS Something that surprises most people about the chemical industry is that its products over their lifecycle save just over twice as much carbon as they cost to make and we believe we can take this to over four times with the right regulatory framework that stimulates new technology. The biggest saving we can offer is through better insulation, but chemical coatings for glass improves the performance of double glazing and advanced synthetic rubber reduces the rolling resistance of tyres to lower carbon emissions without compromising safety. There are plenty more examples everywhere you look from crop protection chemicals to easycare finish on clothes and the insulation in your fridge. Nanomaterials are an integral part of many of these solutions. Nanotechnology used in water purification of salt or brackish water could save the equivalent of 4 nuclear power stations if the technology was rolled out across Europe. Nanocoatings are being used to improve the efficiency of solar panels. New carbon saving applications of nanotechnology are in the pipeline, for instance nanomaterials being used to make aeroplanes lighter and therefore more efficient, and nanotechnology may provide the battery technology we need to make full use of renewable energy sources. For the UK to be a front runner in using nanotechnology to engineer such solutions the UK will need a strategy that sends a signal to investors that gives them confidence nanotechnology will be welcomed in the UK as a key part of a future manufacturing base. Some of the key challenges for fostering commercial nanotechnologies in Europe include: n The regulatory uncertainty about nanomaterials remains n The current knowledge gap (e.g. lack of specific tests methods for nanomaterials) n Potential trade barriers created by the development of national inventories n Potential adverse public opinions SAFETY Many nanomaterials are not new and have existed in the natural world all around us without us realising, for instance in flour and milk. The 44 success through nanomaterials

45 technology to measure the size of particles on the nanoscale has allowed us to understand better materials we have worked with for many years and to use this knowledge into the research and innovation of new materials. One of the key challenges we have as an industry is to communicate the message that nanomaterials are not necessary hazardous simply because they contain nano sized particles. As with all chemical products, natural and synthetic, some nanomaterials will have hazardous properties that need to be understood and regulated. To ensure public confidence in our manufacturing processes and products it is essential that regulation of nanomaterials is robust. We believe nanomaterials can be safely regulated under existing REACH regulations and we are working with officials to discuss any potential amendments to guidance necessary for nanomaterials. Companies that are involved in manufacturing nanomaterial work closely with regulators taking a precautionary approach to safety. DEFINITION What is a nanomaterial? This is a very good question which has perplexed the European Commission for two years. In October they were finally able to announce their recommended definition of nanomaterial which was that any material that contains 50% nanoscale particles would be classed as a nanomaterial (the term nanoscale is defined as size range from approximately 1 nm to 100 nm). This is a very broad definition which will include many products not previously considered to be nanotechnology and perhaps including natural materials. The CIA is concerned that there are currently no standardised methods to measure the percentage of nanoscale particles in a material which is a major issue for companies that need to demonstrate whether or not they manufacture nanomaterials. The Commission s definition of nanomaterial allows for the threshold of 50% of nanoparticles in materials to be set at different levels for different groups of products such as cosmetics, food or biocides. We think that this flexibility will cause major difficulties in arranging testing regimes and labelling etc if some materials are defined as nanomaterials for some but not all of the time. We believe there should be one consistent definition of nanomaterial. REGULATION Now that the Commission has published the definition of nanomaterials we are likely to see proposals to reference the definition in legislation such as the Biocides Directive, REACH and regulations that cover a wide range of manufactured products. We believe that the definition should be applied as consistently as possible with the same threshold to provide a clear regulatory framework. We would also welcome a pragmatic approach to regulation that acknowledges that nanomaterial is not intrinsically hazardous and that decisions about appropriate regulation or restriction should be evidence based. We are concerned that the current appetite for countries such as for their own inventories of nanomatarials which may then lead to different definitions and regulatory regimes across the EU member states. We support the work of the European Commission in seeking a global definition of nanomaterials to enable EU countries to export their products globally. GOVERNMENT STRATEGY We believe that the Government should have a strategy for manufacturing that has provision nanotechnology as a key future component. To ensure that nanotechnology is able to flourish and generate growth for the economy the Government s strategy must help us overcome specific UK challaenges: Since the majority of chemical sites in the UK are now owned by foreign headquartered companies and also that the industry competes on a global market, it is absolutely essential to address and where possible mitigate the disadvantages of manufacturing in the UK. Often UK companies find it difficult to remain economically sustainable because of the combination of both the lack of appropriate financial support for product scale-up and development compared to other countries and some of the UK s manufacturing disadvantages such as high energy cost, taxation etc. HAVING THE RIGHT REGULATORY FRAMEWORK FOR ENTREPRENEURS Areas we urge Government to address in a manufacturing strategy would are: n Coordination between and within Departments and related Agencies is absolutely essential to ensure consistency of approach and to develop a practical regulatory health, safety and environment framework for nanotechnology. n The chemical (and other) industry needs to have a single point of contact within the department for Business Innovation and Skills to deal with queries related to nanomaterials when these arise. This could for example include queries/issues specific to the chemical sector such as nano and REACH but also on sectoral regulation e.g. food; biocides, waste as any requirements for nanomaterials in these legislations will have an impact on the chemical industry. n To attract industry to the Technology Innovation centres it is crucial to create an environment where business gets the assurance that confidential information is well safeguarded. n Ensuring we maintain and develop a high quality workforce and academic base. World class skills not only in scientific research but also in high technology manufacturing will be essential. n Stimulating investment in innovation and production capacity In addition to quickly improving the R & D tax credits, implementing the patent box - help for innovation should be complemented by more generous capital investment allowances mainly by increasing the upper limit on eligibility to at least 100,000 n Work with the Nanotechnologies supply chain forum The Nanotechnologies Supply Chain Forum which is led by industry has closed the gap left by the dissolution of the Department for Food and Rural Affairs stakeholder group. The Forum is open to all industrial and non-industrial stakeholders with an interest in establishing the right regulatory framework for the successful commercialisation of nanotechnologies in the UK. The objective of the Forum is to ensure that both UK actions and the UK implementation of EU actions (through seeking to influence EU activity via EU bodies) for nanomaterials and products containing them: n Delivers consistency across different industry sectors, as well as with other legislation. n Allows the UK to grow the new technologies in a responsible and sustainable manner. n Enables the UK to compete globally. CONCLUSIONS The chemical industry needs to drive significant innovation if we are to meet global challenges such as climate change, water and food scarcity and an aging population. We can t meet these challenges by making the same products in the same way we have always done. Nanotechnology can be part of this solution and the UK ought to be able to drive this forward and make it a key part of our export economy. However, to achieve this we need a good regulatory framework and a government policy that says the UK is the place to invest in new technology. NanoPerspective 45

48 KCMC Harnessing the potential of materials chemistry When the challenge is to evolve and commercialise functional and multi functional materials - incorporating nanoscale design and nanoscale functionality - the abbreviation KCMC flags a highly capable partner. KCMC - the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry - provides industry with a single point of access to a wide spectrum of multi-disciplinary research in applied materials chemistry, delivering innovative knowledge transfer for companies of all sizes. Crucially, it also seeks to help shorten and simplify the innovation-to-market timescale. Linking academia and industry and now in its third year of operation, KCMC is a virtual centre of expertise. It provides flexible access to fasttrack research by science partners the Universities of Bolton, Liverpool and Manchester and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) at Daresbury. Materials chemistry covers a broad range of science and technology competencies crucial to develop and commercialise advanced products in most notably - the energy, healthcare and sustainable materials sectors. During its 2010/11 business year, KCMC added value by introducing an impressive 96 new companies to the research partners. It will typically offer companies the valuable combination of single-point access to research, rapid project start-up via dedicated scientists and ready access to support grants. But the hard numbers understate KCMC s real contribution to customers and research partners alike. Arguably just as important are the many additional conversations where the Centre advises on client on materials chemistry - or flags other approaches and possible collaborators. For a long term win win relationship the genuine trickle-down of KCMC ideas into eventual projects can be more significant than specific project numbers. MAJOR STRENGTHS The four research partners offer a world class, interdisciplinary approach across key areas, with leading edge science including modelling and simulation; thin film and surface chemistry; nanostructured materials; printed electronics and smart/multifunction materials. KCMC s major technology strengths are in electronics and photonics, advanced materials, catalysts and formulated products. Applications are across fields as diverse as biomedical devices, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, coatings, electronic materials and renewable energy sources. The Centre s breadth of involvement is reflected in its project breakdownby-industry, including chemicals and materials suppliers (39%); healthcare (18%) and energy and electronics (13% each). The home/personal care, construction, food and drink and engineering sectors are also represented. Notable among programmes and capabilities that featured during 2010/11 were projects relating to long term tracking of stem cells; advanced materials; renewable energy, printed electronics; fire resistant materials and energy harvesting fibre technology. SUCCESS STORY Ahead of forecast achievements and momentum in generated income and business development activity in KCMC s Year Two (ended 31 March) have continued strongly through the opening quarters of 2011/12. Twenty one projects were completed in the April June quarter, while by the start of Q3 (1 October) KCMC had reached a total of 119 projects, across 77 companies, With an industry programme value of 8.9m. By many key target measures, KCMC has already delivered well beyond its three and fiveyear targets. Centre John Conti Ramsden emphasizes the benefit streams in both societal and innovation delivery terms. KCMC s underlying remit is to harness materials chemistry innovation to help meet societal needs in energy, healthcare and sustainability. The delivery mechanism is then to build academic and industry collaboration and pathways that can help speed innovation towards commercial application. The prime role of KCMC will usually be in the earlier stages of product development, leveraging the research partners materials chemistry capabilities in ideas generation, cutting-edge science, product feasibility and specialist prototyping. These will often make the crucial difference in helping businesses to secure competitive advantage at low risk and within industrial timescales. Materials chemistry has particular leverage in three high-focus areas: in energy, where key opportunities lie in renewables; in health including the benefits of clean water, drug delivery and personalized medicine and in the commercialization of sustainable materials to replace scarce or toxic raw materials. KCMC s current energy targets include materials for PV, fuel cell, photocatalysts for fuel synthesis, piezo and energy storage. In health current targets embrace anti-microbial surfaces and effects, imaging and sensors. Focus in sustainable materials includes sustainable raw materials replacements for inorganic compositions including ITO, PZT, CdTe; platinum group metals alternatives for catalysis and the synthesis of functional oligomers and polymers from bio-derived molecules. The KCMC focus also supports open innovation and tracks a diverse cluster of major market opportunities for UK plc where materials chemistry has a big role. Examples are to be found in organic electronics, plastics, composites, integral photovoltaics and lighting, and industrial biotech. FUTURE BUSINESS MODEL Headquartered in Runcorn at the heart of the UK north west s chemical sector - KCMC operates through a central team of knowledge transfer experts and dedicated resources at the partner organisations. These provide access to more than 40 senior academics, over 250 scientists dedicated to materials chemistry research - and facilities representing 20m.+ investment within the past five years. Founded in early 2009, KCMC is working towards an ongoing business model to take it beyond the 2011/12 final year of its Grant Period. As a preferred partner for industry collaboration in materials chemistry, accelerating commercial adoption of key new technologies will continue to head KCMC s agenda with continuing emphasis on lead market opportunities in energy, health and sustainable materials.

This was one of Durham University s first interdisciplinary Research Centres, established in 1987 to promote relevant activities across academic departments within Durham, in particular, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Computing Sciences. Over recent years, there has been a significant investment in the infrastructure for work in the area. For example, a new Clean Room, based in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences the Molecular Electronics and Micro Systems laboratory - has been funded by the Royal Society, the Wolfson Foundation, Durham University and ONE North East. This class 1000, 200m 2 facility has the capability of processing hybrid device structures, i.e. using both silicon technology and organic materials. The room is fully equipped with all standard fabrication and analysis techniques, including a nanoimprint capability enabling devices to be made with feature sizes of less than 100 nm. An example of the research being undertaken in the Clean Room is shown in the image above. This is a microgripper or an electronically controlled pair of tweezers used in cell manipulation. Extensive trials in industry and in research laboratories have shown the device to be reliable and easy to use. The addition of greater functionality to the tweezers promises several advantages over standard cell manipulation tools. Other work involves the development of components for organic electronics, a rapidly developing interdisciplinary technology aiming to produce electronic components based on carbon rather than silicon. Ongoing research projects include organic displays, organic lighting, plastic solar cells, organic transistors and chemical sensors.

54 University of Texas at Arlington Nanoparticle Self-Lighting Photodynamic Therapy For Cancer Treatment Abstract: A new therapy for cancer treatment called nanoparticle-self lighting photodynamic therapy (PDT) is introduced in which no external light is needed for activation. This new method enables PDT not only for skin cancer treatment but also for deep cancer treatment. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Untreated cancers can adversely affect a patient s quality of life and can lead to death. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports that more than 18 million cancer cases have been diagnosed since Photodynamic therapy has been designated as a promising new modality in the treatment of cancer since the early 1980s. This can be partially attributed to the attractive basic concept of PDT the combination of two therapeutic agents: a photosensitizing drug and light. Both the light and the photosensitizing agent are relatively harmless by themselves but, combined in the presence of oxygen, can result in selective tumor destruction. The three key components required for PDT are oxygen, photosensitizer, and light. It is commonly accepted that singlet oxygen is the predominant cytotoxic agent produced during PDT. Therefore, PDT efficiency is largely determined by the production efficiency of singlet oxygen, which is a product of photosensitizer efficacy, light characteristics (intensity and wavelength), and oxygen concentration. Light must be delivered to the photosensitizers for PDT activation and this limit PDT treatment only effective for skin cancer because light cannot penetrate deeply into tissue. To solve the problem of light penetration and to enable the PDT treatment for deep cancers, a new PDT system is proposed in which the light is generated by afterglow nanoparticles with attached photosensitizers as illustrated in Figure 1. [1,2] When the nanoparticle - photosensitizer conjugates are targeted to tumor, the light from afterglow nanoparticles will activate the photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy. Therefore, no external light is required for the treatment. More importantly, it can be used to treat deep cancers because the light source is attached to the photosensitizers and are delivered to the tumor cells together. Currently, we are developing afterglow nanoparticles for PDT activation and the afterglow nanoparticles can be activated by radiation beam such X-ray or Gamma-ray. In this way, we can easily combine photodynamic therapy with radiotherapy for cancer treatment, which would reduce the radiation dose for cancer treatment and this is critically important to reduce the sider-effects of radiation treatment. The above concept has been proved in our pilot studies. For example, after a 24 hours incubation with nanoparticles and a subsequent irradiation with 5 G X-ray, MCF-7 cells were stained simultaneously with DAPI, propidium iodide (PI) and JC1. The bright green granules indicate that LaF 3: Ce 3+ /porphyrin/plga nanoparticles were uptaken into the cytoplasm. While healthy cells are supposed to show blue nuclei and red cytoplasm, these treated cells with red nuclei and green cytoplasm indicate damage of cell membranes and decreased membrane potential of mitochondria. These results indicate that X-ray activated LaF 3:Ce/ porphyrin/plga nanoparticles have a toxic effect for both nuclei and mitochondria as shown in the image below. See Figure 2. Breast cancers treated with LaF 3: Ce 3+ /porphyrin/plga nanoparticles (right) in comparison with the control (left) that was treated with X-ray but no nanoparticle-porhyrin conjugates. The X-ray dose is 3 Grays. The observations indicate that the breast cancer cells were damaged by singlet oxygen from X-ray induced PDT. The research is funded by the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) under Contracts of W81XWH , W81XWH and W81XWH In the pilot studies, we have demonstrated that nanoparticle-self lighting photodynamic therapy has a good potential for cancer treatment.

55 CuX (X =S, Se and Te) Nanoparticle Based Photothermal Therapy For Cancer Treatment ABSTRACT Cancer cells have lower oxygen concentration than normal cells, so normal cells can stand up at higher temperatures than cancer cells do. So, the control of localized temperature within o C, cancer cells would be killed but healthy cells would survive. Using CuX nanoparticles in combination with near infrared (NIR) light to generate heat for cancer destruction is a new photothermal therapy that is a simple and costeffective method for cancer treatment. BACKGROUND Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Untreated cancers can adversely affect a patient s quality of life and can lead to death. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports that more than 18 million cancer cases have been diagnosed since Normal cells can survive at temperature as high as 45 0C, while cancer cells die at temperatures higher than 41 0C because cancer cells have oxygen deficiency. So, if we can control the temperature from 41 to 45 0C, we can kill the cancer cells while keep the normal cells alive. This method of using heat to kill cancer cells is called hypothermia. If the heat is produced by near-infrared (NIR) light (700 to 1100 nm), then this is called photothermal ablation (PTA). (see figure 1) Agents are required for PTA and the agents must have intense absorption in NIR because only NIR light can penetrate deeply into tissue for cancer treatment. Gold nanostructures have been widely studied for PTA applications because they have strong absorption in NIR. However, the critical drawback of gold nanostructures is they are very expensive and the methods for making gold nanostructures are very complicated. Recently, we studied and discovered that copper sulfide (CuS) nanoparticles have intense absorption in NIR from 800 to 1100 nm that can be used for PTA treatment.1 As a new type of agents for PTA treatment of cancer, CuS nanoparticles have many advantages. The most favorable features are the low-costs, simple and easy for preparation and small size for cancer cell targeting. CuS nanoparticles are benign, have no side-effect on normal cells, and can be uptaken by cancer cells (Figure 2). IMPACT The beauty of PTA is its duality mechanism - that is the targeting of the agents and the light that used for activation. The duality of targeting can effectively reduce the side effects and the risk of damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. As a new type of agents for photothermal treatment of cancer, CuS nanoparticles have many advantages. The most favorable features are the low-costs, simple and easy for preparation and small size for targeting. The estimated costs of making 1.85x nm CuS nanoparticles (equivalent 1 mole of CuS molecules ) and 40-nm 7.25x10 17 hollow gold microspheres (equivalent 1 mole of Au atoms), based on the costs of the starting materials, are $330 and $52,200, respectively. Second, the NIR absorption in CuS originates from the d d transition of Cu 2+ ions, whereas the NIR absorption in gold nanostructures is from the surface plasmon resonance. The plasmon absorption energy is highly sensitive to the particle size, shape and solvents, while the absorption wavelength of d-d transitions of Cu 2+ in CuS is hardly changed by the particle size, shape or solvent. However, its absorption intensity is highly dependent on the particle size as a result of quantum size confinement. We consider these aspects to give CuS a significant advantage compared to the use of Au nanomaterials. On one hand, CuS nanoparticles are very easy to synthesize and their absorption is peaking at around 900 nm, which is in the NIR range for in vivo applications. On the other hand, the surface plasmon absorption peak of gold nanostructures is highly dependent on the dielectric constant of the surrounding matrix. Thus, when they are delivered to the cancer cells, the plasmon absorption maximum will shift as compared to in vitro observations complicating the reproducibility and standardization of the treatment conditions. However, these issues do not exist for using CuS nanoparticles. In addition, 64 Cu, a positron emitter, can be easily doped into CuS nanoparticles for PET imaging. This means that CuS nanoparticles can be used for both therapy and imaging which is very convenient for in situ observations during cancer treatment. The proposed strategies and methods apply directly to optimization of this aspect so it can improve CuS-Nano-PTA practical applications. CuX nanoparticle based PTT is tremendous as CuS nanoparticles are not only much cheaper than Au nanostructures but they also provide a simple and easy treatment. REF. 1.

56 Cranfield Nanotechnology Energy and the Environment: Bridging the gap between materials science, nanotechnology and manufacturing Nanotechnology, materials science and manufacturing are cornerstones of the modern world. They play a key role in advanced technologies in all walks of life and at all scales from miniature devices through to passenger jets. Their importance is reflected in government, industry and research council priorities. Cranfield University is at the vanguard of developments at the intersection of these fields and is uniquely positioned to offer a strong research base in innovative materials, manufacturing and nanotechnology research. No more so is this reflected than in the fields of energy and the environment. Energy and environment are at the heart of Cranfield Nano activities, explains Cranfield s Professor Robert Dorey, and is where manufacturing and materials science meet nanotechnology to realise innovative nanoinspired solutions. Central to these activities is the development of techniques to manipulate nanoscale material architectures through flexible manufacturing methods to yield systems capable of generating power, storing energy, and monitoring the natural and build environment. Cranfield Nano provides a single point of entry for engaging with Cranfield University in the field of nanotechnology. A pan university activity, Cranfield Nano connects the nanotechnology expertise from across Cranfield s different technology sectors to deliver applied nanoresearch in aerospace, automotive, energy, environment, healthcare, manufacturing and materials, and security and defence. The aim of Cranfield Nano is to develop long term collaborations between Cranfield and its partners. Specialist postgraduate courses Full and part-time You can develop your nanotechnology and materials expertise through our portfolio of specialist accredited Masters courses, short courses and funded research opportunities, including: MSc Advanced Materials MSc Microsystems and Nanotechnology MSc Ultra Precision and Nanoengineering MSc Ultra Precision Technologies T: +44 (0) E: W: Register for our next Open Day at: Energy Local energy generation and storage for mobile and small scale applications is the vision of the nanoenergy activity. Distributed energy and sensor networks are expected to dominate in the future offering energy solutions for remote communities and locations as well as temporary outposts and disaster relief. The activity is explored through thermoelectric and solar cell generators as well as thermal energy storage and direct electrical generation through micro solid oxide fuel cells. By structuring functional materials at the nanoscale, for example by creating nanoscale films and nanocomposite structures, the effectiveness of energy generators and storage media can be greatly enhanced. Together solar, thermal and fuel cell technologies provide a means to robust, clean and sustainable energy supply. Complimenting this activity are energy management and storage solutions with activities on electrical transformers and batteries utilising nanoscale structures. Environment Nanotechnology has a key role to play in sensing the environment, which is considered to include not only the natural environment but also the build environment of the structures, vehicles and industrial processes that form an everyday part of our lives. Environmental monitoring is used to assess the health of the surroundings as well as to ensure processes are working at their most efficient. Environmental monitoring activities at Cranfield include structural health monitoring, detection of nanomaterials in the environment, chemical and gas detection, and the detection of biological species. The ability to detect such a range of different stimuli depends largely on the ability to control the nanoscale structures at the surface of functional materials such that they respond in specific and reproducible ways to the stimuli. By embedding the complimentary manufacturing research within the activities on energy and environment the research can be developed much further to the point where the resultant technologies can be trialled in real life applications. Research at the confluence of nanotechnology, materials and manufacturing has the potential to provide solutions for a vast number of industries ranging from environment and health through to aerospace and security. Cranfield s multidisciplinary approach means it is well positioned to offer integrated solutions to real life industrial challenges.

58 University College London Materials Science and Simulation at UCL The Industrial Doctorate Centre in Molecular Modelling and Materials Science at University College London (M 3 S IDC) trains and supports researchers in all areas of computational and experimental materials science. The programme is highly interdisciplinary, with students based in a growing number of UCL science, engineering and biomedical departments. The background of the students is similarly varied, ranging from degrees in the chemical and medicinal sciences to physics, computer science and engineering. Most of the Centre s students are recent graduates but others already have significant work experience in industry, but find that doctoral research will broaden their experience and enhance their career prospects. Established in 2005 as a virtual Centre, extensive investment by UCL over the years has provided the M 3 S IDC with modern training facilities and dedicated research labs to support new graduate researchers each year. The four-year programme is targeted at future research leaders in industry, or scientists and engineers who wish to maintain significant links with industry in an academic career. The training covers a broad range of topics, from technical courses on computer modelling techniques and the materials sciences to business development and project management. Professional development, knowledge transfer and responsible innovation are also included to provide the students with a comprehensive set of generic and transferable skills. Research in the Centre focuses on four topical areas: CATALYSIS AND ENERGY MATERIALS One of the founding research areas in the M 3 S IDC, catalysis remains a topical field owing both to its sustained sponsorship by a number of companies, including Johnson Matthey and Exxon Mobil, as well as the research expertise in this area within UCL. Present research includes the heterogeneous catalysis of redox processes on transition-metal oxides and supported metal clusters, as well as the design of novel nano-catalysts and microporous composite materials for CO 2 conversion and production of chemical feedstock compounds. Energy Materials is a related, but relatively newer area of research, sparked by the growing interest by oil companies and energy providers, as well as a recent confluence within UCL of new and existing expertise in the areas of solid fuel cells, novel materials for hydrogen storage and clean/renewable energy, in addition to ongoing research into energy waste, such as radiation damage containment and CO 2 sequestration. industry, namely the large number of possible polymorphs that can exist for any one drug, which may compromise its effectiveness and ultimately can have repercussions for patients and patents. UCL researchers have shown pharma companies that computational structure prediction and experimental testing can successfully screen potential drug polymorphs, before costly manufacturing and in vivo testing need ever take place. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND SOFTWARE ENGINEERING Multi-scale modelling, e-science and grid technology is developed within the Centre in collaboration with a number of international developers of computer software, e.g. Accelrys, whereas the design and engineering of materials for the electronics industry has been added more recently to the M 3 S portfolio, with current research focused on the development of high gate semiconductor devices and highly accurate and sensitive signal detection equipment. Core-funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, external collaborators are invited to part-sponsor individual students to work on topics directly relevant to their own research and development programmes. The external sponsors are involved with the research project from the outset and often provide placements for the student in their own research laboratories. External collaborators of the M 3 S IDC students vary from large multi-national corporations to mediumsized or start-up companies and national research laboratories. NANO-ENGINEERING FOR SMART MATERIALS Design at the nano-level of smart materials, which respond rapidly and often reversibly to changes in their immediate environment, is a highly topical area of research. One application in the M 3 S IDC is in the response of glass to heat and light, where M 3 S investigators have teamed up with Pilkington to design self-cleaning and self-cooling window glasses. Other triggers for smart materials include tailored solubility, for example in glasses for slow drug release, and magnetism, all of which areas are represented strongly in UCL and have important industrial applications, e.g. in building design and healthcare applications. MATERIALS FOR BIO-MEDICAL APPLICATIONS AND PHARMACEUTICALS Bio-materials science is a rapidly expanding field of research within the Centre, with research efforts ranging from the custom-design of massive bone implants, to the development of tailored bio-glasses, magnetic contrast agents and tissue characterization and engineering. Also within the healthcare remit is one of the key problems facing the pharmaceutical 58 success through nanomaterials

62 AssuredNano The premier Occupational, Environmental, Health & Safety (OEHS) accreditation programme for nanotechnology-based organisations AssuredNano promotes good current OEHS practice in the rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology. It is comprehensive both in its scope and its applicability. Covering the full product life cycle, it is as relevant to a fundamental research group as it is to a manufacturing or recycling operation. Its modular approach, together with audit led compliance and a commitment to continuous improvement, ensures relevance to all organizations and promotes continuing OEHS conformance. Following the merger of AssuredNano and Nano Risk Assessment Inc., a global force has been established to tackle all issues relating to the occupational hygiene, toxicology and environmental impact of nanomaterial and nano-enabled products. HOW DOES ASSUREDNANO ACCREDITATION WORK? Accreditation may be on a business unit or plant basis, whichever is the more applicable. However, multiple businesses on a single site require multiple accreditations. Once prepared, the organisation is audited to the AssuredNano standard and, if successful, is presented with its AssuredNano Accreditation Certificate, valid for one year before re-audit falls due. It is expected that successfully accredited organisations will wish to demonstrate their status to their stakeholders and in particular their supply chain partners. Consequently, organisations are entitled to display the AssuredNano logo on their stationery, during the validity of their accreditation. Going forward, it is vital that commitment to nanomaterial OEHS exists throughout a supply chain and hence AssuredNano strongly encourages successfully accredited organisations to promote the value of accreditation to their suppliers and customers in order to assure their in-bound and out-bound processes. WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ASSUREDNANO? Internal expertise underpinned by world experts AssuredNano is designed by industry experts, highly experienced in the methods and processes used to manufacture nanomaterials, to deliver a no nonsense and realistic approach to nano OEHS. Underpinning this expertise is AssuredNano s access to a worldwide resource of experts in nano OEHS. Relevance to the whole supply chain No matter where an organisation sits in the supply chain, the AssuredNano programme ensures that its operating procedures and methodologies conform to the requirements of current good nano OEHS practice. 62 success through nanomaterials

63 Relevance to organization function AssuredNano is just as applicable to the research group in a corporate or university laboratory as to a manufacturer of nanomaterials or nanoenabled products. Its programme covers all facets of a nanomaterial or nano-enabled product s life including: n Management of exposure and risk n Loss of containment n Packaging and transportation n Life cycle analysis n Disposal or recycle Applicability to organizations of all sizes and stages of development AssuredNano has been created specifically not to be resource intensive or bureaucratic and benefits organizations ranging from SMEs to multinationals. It is as relevant to a start-up business with a few employees as to a well established business with thousands of employees. Availability in all locations worldwide Via its new alliance with nanotox, AssuredNano is able to offer its programme worldwide. No longer will an international organisation need to accredit a business using a number of different programmes operating in single geographies. Integrated Nano-science and Commodity Exchange (INSCX ) AssuredNano is the official nano OEHS accreditation body of INSCX. This exchange is increasingly the premier trading exchange for nanomaterials worldwide. Access to an integrated full service offer While AssuredNano offers its accreditation programme world-wide, organizations requiring additional services such as exposure monitoring or environmental compliance auditing can continue to obtain these from nanotox Field Services. A demonstration of responsible care Accreditation to AssuredNano signifies to all stakeholders in your organization that nano OEHS issues are being taken seriously and tackled responsibly and that the health and safety of people exposed to nanomaterials or nano-enabled products will be ensured. HOW DOES MY ORGANISATION GET TO THE ASSUREDNANO STANDARD? Mentored organisational development AssuredNano remains an independent accreditation agency, however nanotox Field Services can provide consultancy support to mentor clients through the process of becoming AssuredNano compliant and with the creation of supporting documentation. Annual audit AssuredNano ensures continuing compliance with good current proactice in the fast moving environment of nanomaterials and nanotechnology by carrying out an annual audit of accredited organisations. In the first year following accreditation (and henceforth in alternate years) this audit is self-administered by an organisation to the AssuredNano s unique protocol. In between these self-audits, the AssuredNano team carries out full on-site audits of a plant or strategic business unit to guarantee compliance. Continuous improvement AssuredNano s adherence to continuous improvement applies to its own methodologies as well as to those of its clients. This philosophy is of critical importance in an area as dynamic as nanotechnology. It will therefore be no surprise to note that AssuredNano regularly updates its accreditation manual and its requirements of accrediting organizations. HOW DOES MY ORGANISATION KEEP ABREAST OF DEVELOPMENTS IN NANO OEHS? Pivotal to AssuredNano is its access to the key researchers and knowledge leaders in nano OEHS. Its close links with the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) in Europe and nanotox in the US, both pre-eminent authorities in nano OEHS, ensure the credibility of AssuredNano s technical methodology. As part of its offer AssuredNano organises workshops and events to promote debate and thought leadership within the world of nano OEHS. By stimulating nano OEHS awareness and advocating the adoption of evolving examples of good practice, AssuredNano ensures that nanomaterials and nanotechnology have a positive future.

70 Materials KTN Tackling the rare earth problem The Materials KTN is undertaking a programme of activities to identify the medium and long-term risks to the supply of scarce raw materials and components to manufacturing and engineering companies in the UK. The ultimate aim is to work with the companies likely to be affected and academic experts to develop mitigating strategies, such as alternative materials, new processing technologies and materials recovery. The issue of materials scarcity has been at the top of EU strategic agenda for some time as most of these materials are widely used in low carbon products, for automation, medical devices and equipment and computers. An expert group created by the European Commission has recently reported on their task to define a common list of critical raw materials, working in close co-operation with member states and stakeholders(1). The report found that fourteen critical raw materials used for high technology products such as mobile phones, laptop computers and clean technologies, such as wind turbines, are in danger of being scarce. They are increasingly used in new technologies but are mined in only a few countries such as China, Russia and Chile. The report analysed 41 different minerals and metals and labelled a raw material as critical when the risk of supply shortage and its impacts on the economy and the environment are higher compared with most of the other raw materials On top of the list are rare earth metals (Fig. 1). Like all the materials at risk, they are needed for the manufacture of high technology and low carbon products. For example, neodymium-based magnets are currently the strongest and longest-lasting type of magnet. While around 50 percent of the element is still used in computer hard drives, neodymium is also used in wind turbines and electric motors. The particular issue with rare earths is that around 97% are currently supplied from China and worldwide supplies are now expected to tighten significantly within the next three to five years as demand continues to grow and China restricts the amount it is expected to export. According to Dr Robert Quarshie, of the Materials KTN, despite the obvious global geo-political issues presented by the rare earth metals problem, which definitely needs sorting out by European governments and businesses alike, there are other mitigating measures that can be taken, such as recycling, efficient use of raw materials through better product design and research into substitute materials. RECYCLING OF PERMANENT MAGNETS Recycling of components containing these scare materials would contribute positively towards a stable supply position. This can be achieved, for example, through reconditioning of useful components to reuse and/or recovery of the scarce materials to use as raw materials in the manufacture of new components. Both will require appropriate technologies and skills which are areas that the Materials KTN has been facilitating (see case study in Box A). For recycling to be an effective solution, the UK will need a much improved infrastructure for collection and segregation of waste. The recent EU report calls for actions to prevent illegal waste exports, further research on how to recycle technically-challenging products and improving collection. The focus of activities for the KTN in 2010/11 includes a series of workshops involving materials producers, product designers and users to review the extent of materials recovery and waste recycling, of these endangered raw materials and develop means to tackle the innovations required for the range of scarce materials as prioritised by the European Commission and by the UK supply chain. Fig. 1: Mapping of Critical Raw Materials taken from EU report on critical raw materials(1) Box A: Processing of Rare Earth Magnet Scraps A Materials KTN Case Study A recently completed Technology Strategy Board funded project, HyProMS (the Hydrogen Processing of rare earth Magnet Scrap) has demonstrated that the cost of rare earth magnets and the dependency of the UK on imported materials could be reduced by researching and developing a rare earth magnet recycling method. The newly developed process would provide a costeffective feedstock for magnet manufacture that would make hybrid cars, wind power generators, etc. cheaper, and help to overcome the strategic problems associated with these materials, which are vital to the UK s climate change and energy reduction agenda. With Technology Strategy Board support and assistance from the Materials KTN, the HyProMS project brought together a top academic group and several companies from the magnet sector. The collaboration between the University of Birmingham Magnetic Materials Group and five SMEs developed the required magnet recycling technology and showed that rare earth magnets could be effectively recycled using a non-melt process with considerable energy savings (90% reduction compared to primary magnet production). According to Bob Blake, the Materials KTN s technology expert involved with this project, this TSB supported project has helped to expand knowledge vital to the UK s future in relation to climate change mitigation as well as providing a springboard for the future industrial exploitation of the recycling of rare earth magnets. 70 success through nanomaterials

74 Clean and Controlled Sy Leaders in Scalable Development and Manufacturing of Nanoparticle Ceramics as Aqueous or Liquid Dispersions Introducing the Clean Materials Technology (CMT) Group, London who manufacture nanoparticle metal oxides and metals (length scales nm) using a continuous hydrothermal flow synthesis (CHFS) process that can make nanoceramics safely using superheated water. CHFS uses superheated water (a green solvent) in a flow process to rapidly and controllably made nanoceramics in a continuous manner. These particles are continuously harvested from the reactor as a room temperature dispersion in water. The process produces ultra-high quality dispersed nanoparticle ceramics using our patented confined jet mixer technology (*patent filed ref GB ). The process allows multi-kg a day production using our current facility (this is a very scalable technology which is known on >600 tpa scale in industry) Nanoparticle dispersions are often ready to use from the process as a wet aqueous dispersion which is much safer for production, transportation and handling. Alternatively, the nanomaterials can be dried and stored for use later. Many different types of nanoceramic oxide particles have been produced for a wide range of applications (over 12 years experience in the field). e.g. titania, magnetite, zirconia, YSZ, metal phosphates, zinc oxide, Indium oxide, ceria, doped ceramics, heterometallic oxides, etc. Nanoparticles can be made with surface functionality such as PEG, etc. for use in biomedical and other applications where well dispersed nanoparticles are required. Our green process uses only superheated water and metal salts or surface agents and so is preferable to using hydrocarbon solvents, which is better for the environment.

76 Miracles In Black The heat wave of nano technology is hot enough to call the 21st century the time of nano technology. Every nation in the world is focusing on the development of nano technology to take a new leap forward beyond the limits of the almost saturated current technology. Nanotechnology is the creation of useful, functional materials, devices, and systems through controlling and manipulating matter on the nanometer-length scale (1-100 nanometers), and exploiting novel phenomena and properties (physical, chemical, biological, mechanical, electrical) at that length scale. In particular, carbon nanotubes (CNT) - a core fundamental material of the nano technology - is on the spotlight, thanks to its minute size and excellent electric and mechanical properties that allow application to various areas such as semiconductor & display, energy & environment, aerospace, and material industry. Since the company commercialized CNT in 2008, Nanoshel has supplied various CNT materials through continuous R&D and proved to be a leading technological power in the global market for high-quality electronic & display products. Useful applications for nanotechnology exist in areas as diverse as materials, manufacturing, bio-medical, electronics, computing, and transportation. Nanostructured metals and ceramics, for example, could be made into exact shapes without machining. Abrasives, coatings, paints, and composites all could be made stronger and better using nanoparticles. Integrated nanosensors would enable massive amounts of data to be acquired, processed, and shared with minimal size, weight, and power consumption. Less expensive remote and in-vivo devices would provide new routes for drug delivery. More durable, rejection-resistant artificial tissues and organs could be created. And in automobiles, nanotechnology can lead to wear-resistant tires, improved battery technology, and lightweight composites for increasing fuel efficiency. Recently, the CNT industry has been speedily pursuing mass production and commercialization beyond the development stage. In keeping with such trend, Nanoshel LLC seeks to take the initiative in related industries by making aggressive investments and through the company s experiences accumulated through the years. Going forward, Nanoshel LLC shall build its reputation as a reliable material provider through mass production, quality advancement, and standardization of products and nurture R&D based on a neversay- die spirit to become the undisputed world s best CNT company.

84 INSCX The Integrated Nano-Science & Commodity Exchange WHAT ARE WE? Launched in Europe and the United States in October 2010, INSCX (the Integrated Nano-Science & Commodity Exchange) is a commodity exchange established to physically trade accredited, compliant and validated nanomaterials and nano-enabled products, as well as traditional commodities (grains, metals, minerals and products). INSCX ( is based in the and has satellite operations in the United States and Asia. The exchange is the focal point of the emerging world trade in nanomaterials, a trade that will be crucial to continuing world prosperity in the 21st century. The opening of INSCX means that, for the first time, nanomaterials will be traded in the same way as other goods where purchasers are assured of quality and competitive prices, while suppliers are provided with surety of demand and the financial tools and trade flexibilities needed to respond. WHY ARE WE HERE? INSCX places nanomaterials on a par with existing established materials and commodities through provision of cost-effective tools to enable organic growth. These materials also have had to overcome familiar obstacles including capital limitations, lack of generally agreed material specifications, volume uncertainties and limited availability of development capital. INSCX simply follows the historical support legacy of commodity exchanges established in the 19th century for metals, grains and oils by providing the nanomaterials industry with the tools necessary to increase the tradeability of this broad suite of innovative materials. The origins of such commodity exchanges were commercial not financial, first formed by metals foundries and grain farmers seeking more efficient trade processes capable of meeting increased societal demand for metals and foodstuffs. These commercial, as opposed to financial origins, remain with us today and underline the distinct difference between a commodity exchange and a financial market exchange. SUPPORTING SUPPLIERS AND PROMOTING GROWTH INSCX will provide supplier access to trade finance and develop uptake of nanomaterials, whilst promoting nanomaterial SHE via accreditation to standards devised by AssuredNano. The overall objective is to enable both commerce and society to benefit from nanomaterials trading, whilst ensuring observance of quality standards, agreed material specifications and trading integrity. ASSURANCES TO BUYERS Purchasers of nanomaterials benefit from generally agreed material specifications, price transparency and guaranteed supply. They are also fully insured against unforeseen commercial and/or political difficulty. 84 success through nanomaterials

85 WHAT IS NEEDED? To develop, nanomaterials industry needs to: 1. Create the generally agreed material standards expected by the purchasing community. INSCX promotes this via the guarantee of material quality, SHE compliance, trade integrity and the aggregation of buyers. 2. Access to structured capital. INSCX provides access to trade finance. WHY GET INVOLVED? There are many reasons why nanomaterials suppliers and purchasers should get involved with INSCX. These include: 1. Trading Standards INSCX offers the ability to provide potential buyers of nanomaterials with the very same standards they demand of existing materials, namely price transparency, quality/supply assurance, commercial insurance and trade flexibility, including the ability to procure materials on a cash forward basis. 2. Health & Safety Standards INSCX exchange offers nanomaterials suppliers and downstream users of nanomaterials the ability to use the exchange process to become Nanomaterials SHE accredited without undue financial burden. Through agreements with the scheme s global provider, AssuredNano any supplier or downstream user of nanomaterials may graduate toward full SHE accreditation without having to commit initial capital. 3. Regulation INSCX exchange is a process to deliver self-regulation within nanomaterials providing regulatory bodies with a working template on which to base potential legislation. Participation means in effect the creation of an industry voice to communicate with official bodies. 4. Market Development - INSCX will provide a true assessment of the economic value of nanomaterials, enabling the global investment community to value nanomaterials as a collective industry based on factual evidence of trade flows. 5. Insurance & Regulation - The exchange offers the ability to secure insurance through appointed underwriters to INSCX for Exchange traded NMs and a definitive Trace and Trace mechanism central to enabling the willing involvement of the financial, insurance and official regulatory community in support of nanoscience. 6. IP Safeguards - Most NM producers remain somewhat perplexed when INSCX refer to a nanomaterial as a commodity, but fail to appreciate the distinction between the general term commodity (which is used to describe any substance, chemical, material, resource and so forth) and a commoditized commodity, the latter meaning produced by several as opposed to a single producer. The Exchange draws a clear distinction between a single producer commodity and one produced by more than one producer. Already there are several Principal Approved Supplier grades of NMs listed on the Exchange meaning these materials can only be sourced from the listed Principal Supplier. This contrasts with Multiple Approved Supplier grades of NMs, where more than one producer is approved to supply. 7. Global - When we consider an Exchange traded NM is supplied SHE Accredited, independently inspected to prove quality, Track and Traced, insured, priced on a open market operating globally where exchange trade finance is available to the producer to upscale to order, the use of Principal and Multiple supplier grades acts to safeguard proprietary IP overcoming regional and national disparities in the interpretation of Intellectual Property on a cross-border basis. The exchange will simply refuse to list any material that infringes on the Intellectual property held by a registered supplier to a Principal grade specification. 8. Economies of Scale There exists ample opportunity for NMs to make a real and substantive difference to address current resource challenge to society and industry. To exploit these opportunities requires a critical mass to develop to deliver supply certainty through economies of scale in a manner which safeguards producer profit margins. The level of capital required to achieve this goal can only be obtained through use of a capital market framework which in a commodity exchange context, is already used daily to finance whole industries such as industrial metals, agriculture and the oil/energy sectors. This framework is now available to NM producers. The need for the NM producer base to develop economies of scale is well noted particularly in use of nanotechnologies in medicine and other commercial sectors. 9. Solutions for Industry - INSCX invites industry to work to state requirement and price tolerance in the context of NMs whilst providing the financial tools to enable the NM producer base to respond in addition to the necessary mechanics to structure procurement allocation models though use of forward and spot contracts. 10.Integration - INSCX is already active through association with Comdaq in the formal trade of many traditional commodities such as minerals, metals, oils, cement and agriculture. Both Exchanges share the use of a central or specialist dealing desk managed by NCM Global Limited where order flow buy and sell is routed through the specialist dealing team for posting to the exchange trade floors. For 2012 alone, the specialist is negotiating in excess of some USD$300m in business related to purchase of NMs and Nano-enabled commodities currently listed to traditional end user clients. NM producers once registered can tap into this ability to integrate to drive sales. HOW TO GET INVOLVED INSCX is open to any supplier and/or downstream user of NM, nanoenabled and more traditional commodities. Registration with the Exchange is completed online and once approved users gain access to the trading floor to instruct sale or purchase in both materials currently listed for trade and any additional material requirements. For additional information please visit the Specialist Dealers website at accessing the link to register with the Exchange. To speak to an Exchange representative to discuss any matter, to or contact + 44 (0) during UK business hours. First register with INSCX exchange.

86 UKTI Nanotechnology can play a critical role in Advanced Engineering in sectors such as space, aerospace, automotive, motorsport, marine, energy, electronics, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, construction and many others. It has become clear that Advanced Engineering and Nanotechnology will advance together. UK excellence in developing and applying nanotechnology is based on being at the forefront of considerable scientific achievement in recent years in the control and manipulation of matter at the nano scale, with breakthrough developments in molecular geometry such as carbon nano tubes and graphene sheets (the basis of the Andre Geim Nobel prize in physics. Significant areas of technology and application capability include: n Technology areas - plastic and molecular electronics, smart and responsive surfaces, new lasers and optoelectronic devices from III/ IV semiconductors, graphene, metamaterials, biomolecular selfassembly, structures for quantum information and new measurement instrumentation, and toxicology and ecotoxicology methods n Application areas nanomedicines and tissue engineering scaffolds, sensors for health and environment, drug delivery (physical and biological methods), block copolymer nanostructures for structural and functional use, hydrogen storage materials, novel photovoltaics, and food security. There are also around 220 companies in the UK developing nano-based applications across a wide range of technology fields. The UK s nanoscale technology industry falls broadly into two major categories: n n businesses involved in processing/ integrating nanoscale materials and nanostructures businesses involved in tools and instrumentation. In the case of the former, UK industry is generally more focused on the integration of nanoscale materials than on their primary manufacture as more value can be generated through theoretical development, design, the scaling up of new manufacturing technologies for specific materials and licensing the technology to other countries for production. These are areas where the UK has clear strengths - for example, the UK is strong industrially in thin film and coating technologies incorporating nanoscale materials, as well as in the area of structural and functional materials with emphasis on the use of nanocomposites. There is also strong activity in the field of drug delivery through controlled release, diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as in the integration of nanoscale materials and structures into displays, memory and sensors. In all cases, these strengths have resulted from collaboration across the supply chain. The UK is also a leader in developing specialised instrumentation and tools for measurement at the nanoscale with a significant proportion focused on the challenging area of techniques that measure surface effects critical to measure and characterise novel materials and effects at the nanoscale in real life situations, in order to realise new applications. Business and academia in the UK are incentivised to work together with support from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Research Councils. For example, the two funding bodies have recently issued a research call seeking to invest up to 9m in grant funding to support highly innovative, business led collaborative research projects focussed on nanoscale technology-enabled solutions for the healthcare sector. The TSB funded Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) also supports the exploitation and commercialisation of micro and nanotechnologies by informing, facilitating innovation and encouraging collaborations between suppliers and users. It has a broad membership drawn from industry, academia and government and works in four broad areas: promoting and facilitating knowledge exchange; supporting the growth of UK capabilities; raising awareness of nanotechnology; providing thought leadership and input to UK policy and strategy. One extremely valuable form of collaboration is the role played by the NanoKTN in awarding EPSRC studentships in nanotechnology research. These studentships are a unique way of linking academic research with industrial needs to stimulate better cooperation between the business and academic sectors. Companies offer direct funding to students, in addition to that already secured from EPSRC. By offering these opportunities, companies hope they will encourage development of new products into the UK s strong nanotechnology market and gain from the research that is undertaken. Among the cutting-edge projects being supported are the following. n The University of Bath, collaborating with Pilkington Group Ltd is researching the development of photocatalytic coatings for selfcleaning and architectural glazing applications n Manchester s Metropolitan University, collaborating with United Utilities is researching smart nanomaterials for the detection of natural and synthetic pollutants n The University of Birmingham is working with Stryker Corporation to develop antimicrobial coatings for titanium orthopaedic implants n Oxford University is developing polymer based solid-state dye sensitized solar cells in partnership with Oxford Photovoltaics Ltd The University of Sheffield is working with Domino UK on designing polymeric additives that can migrate to the nano-scale region between a substrate and a coated ink The UK s nanotechnology-enabled Advanced Engineering expertise is also available to you contact UKTI to find out more.
