The purpose of this project is to identify metallic nanomaterials that could be of great importance for Small and medium Enterprises in the near future. To reach that goal, we performed a patent and literature research to identify the nanostructured metals that are the subject of most extensive research in the recent years. We also interviewed experts in that field. In this talk we will present the results of this study, indicating the advantages of the new nano-materials and the main barriers for their applications. We will also show problems with categorization of such materials.
The hottest research topic in that respect is synthesis and application of metallic nanoparticles, first of all silver nanoparticles. However there is a great potential also in the application of nanostructured metals produced by heavy plastic deformation. The presentation will be followed by a "Road-mapping workshop" where we will try order the nanostructured metals and their technologies according to the expected commercialization chances.
The project is carried out with support of the EC project "Nanoroad SME"
