Nanotechnology is a relatively new discipline which is growing rapidly and is used in a broad-spectrum of applications such as engineering, medicine, cosmetics, sports goods and textiles. The number of consumer products that employ nanotechnology is steadily increasing. Nanomaterials have novel and diverse properties very different to those of the same materials on a macroscopic scale, exhibiting unique optical, electronic and magnetic properties. Not surprising then that these engineered materials are being used to create new products and applications, and to improve existing products.
