Following decades of research and development, commercial products are now making use of the unique properties of nanoscale particles in applications from healthcare to electronics to energy. However, challenges in all processes of nanoparticle manufacturing, from synthesis and purification, to characterization and integration, still limit their impact. Under the auspices of the NIST Nanomanufacturing Initiative, Advancing Nanoparticle Manufacturing gathered experts from industrial, governmental, and academic sectors to discuss these technical challenges, as well as application forecasts, market insights, and intersector collaborations. Through this discussion and subsequent study, NIST aimed to develop a broad perspective of common challenges and recent innovations in nanoparticle manufacturing in liquids. Concluding this study, the organizers of this NIST Workshop have published an archival report in the form of a review article, with an accompanying NIST news article.
