The physicochemical properties of nanometer-sized objects are highly susceptible to their structural parameters, such as size, shape and defect density, and also to the many possible routes and mechanisms of interaction with the surrounding medium. The degree of complexity is considerably higher if the target application requires a large quantity of such nanometer-sized objects. For this reason, quality control has become one of the main challenges in the fast-growing field of mass production of nanomaterials.
In this thematic issue, we invite contributions on the characterization and quality control of mass-produced nanomaterials.
