AssuredNano® The premier Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) accreditation scheme for nanotechnology-based organisations

AssuredNano® exists to overcome the obstacles to nanomaterial commercialisation resulting from SHE concerns. AssuredNano® offers a way for responsible manufacturers to address nanomaterial SHE concerns based upon the use of good current practice. It demonstrates to all stakeholders in nanomaterials and nanotechnology that SHE 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. Most importantly, AssuredNano® is designed by industry experienced SHE experts to deliver a commonsense and realistic approach to nanomaterial SHE.

What we do and how it works AssuredNano® is the first comprehensive nanomaterial SHE accreditation scheme featuring annual compliance auditing. An organisation wishing to become accredited is mentored through the requirements of the accreditation methodology via the provision of supervisory consultant support. 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 over the course of a day by an independent auditor from AssuredNano®’s audit group. A successful organisation is then presented with its AssuredNano® Accreditation Certificate, valid for one year. 8 success through nanomaterials

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 the commitment to nanomaterial SHE 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 inbound and out-bound processes.


Scope AssuredNano® is the nanomaterials SHE accreditation scheme for all organisations producing nanomaterials, nano-enabled products, plus users of nanotechnology in general. It promotes the responsible and proactive application of nanomaterial SHE good current practice throughout the entire nanomaterials and nanotechnology community. AssuredNano® is an accreditation scheme which is both comprehensive in its scope, but also in application. It has just as much relevance to the research group in a corporate or university laboratory as to a manufacturer of nanomaterials or nano-enabled products. It is equally applicable to the SME as to the global multinational company. The benefits Accreditation to AssuredNano® demonstrates to all stakeholders that your organisation takes nanomaterial SHE seriously and is committed to the adoption and maintenance of good current practice. The fact that it is designed by industrially experienced SHE experts means that it promotes a commonsense approach to SHE. The AssuredNano® Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme which is all-embracing, covering all facets of a nanomaterial or nanoenabled product’s life including: n n n n n

Management of manufacturing/research risk and exposure Loss of containment Packaging and transportation Life cycle analysis Disposal or recycle

The AssuredNano® Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme which is annually audited on-site for compliance. A written report is presented to the organisation following an audit detailing pass or fail, plus areas for improvement and corrective actions to be undertaken. Annual compliance audits demonstrate not only adherence to SHE good current practice, but also a commitment to continuous SHE improvement, reflecting progressively evolving nanomaterial SHE knowledge. The AssuredNano® Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme underpinned by the technical expertise of the world renowned Institute of Occupational Medicine. Building the Nano SHE Knowledge base Pivotal to AssuredNano® is its access to the key researchers and knowledge leaders in nanomaterial SHE. Its close links with the Institute of Occupational Medicine, the pre-eminent authority world-wide in nanomaterial SHE, ensures the credibility of AssuredNano®’s technical methodology. As part of its offer AssuredNano® organises conferences, workshops and events to promote debate and thought leadership within the world of nanomaterial SHE. By stimulating nanomaterial SHE awareness and advocating the adoption of evolving examples of good practice, AssuredNano® ensures that nanomaterials and nanotechnology have a positive future.

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 (www. fluence.co.uk) has supplied £3 million of R&D support to 73 companies and 44 Universities with 80% 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.

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.

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™ (http:// inscx.com) is based in the United Kingdom 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 24 success through nanomaterials

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.


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® www.assurednano.eu, 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.

How to get involved INSCX™ is open to any supplier and/or downstream user of nanomaterials, advanced materials, nano-enabled and more traditional commodities domiciled anywhere across the globe. The procedure to get involved is simple. First register with INSCX™ exchange. Registration provides access to other exchange services and of course retail access to view the live electronic trade platform for placing formal trade instructions.

The system chosen was the dispersion of Zinc Oxide and its incorporation into a clear acrylic film. The companies supporting the case study were Lubrizol Advanced Materials who specialise in the dispersion and stabilisation of nanoparticles, MacDermid Autotype manufacturers of acrylic films incorporating nanoparticles and Intertek MSG whose characterisation expertise finds application across the entire supply chain. Lubrizol Advanced Materials offers over 60 different dispersant systems based upon the Solsperse, Solplus, Ircosperse, Colorburst ranges. Lubrizol’s development labs specialise in applications within coatings, inks and plastics and feature the latest nano bead mills plus twin screw extruders.

Fig 1 Nano-enabled product supply chain

Background The commercial application of nanomaterials is often impeded by technical challenges arising from the quality and consistency of the nanomaterials, their dispersion in formulations and scale-up. As a consequence, NanoCentral co-ordinated the construction of a case study designed to: 1. Exemplify the capability of the extended network of its Providers 2. Establish the baseline for current dispersion technology (bead milling) in order to determine the advantage to be gained by ConCor milling.

Lubrizol’s contribution to the case study was to identify potentially suitable dispersants based on particle and carrier chemistry and then optimise dispersant performance by determining optimum milling conditions. MacDermid Autotype produces coated plastic films for application in displays, solar energy, diagnostics and automotives. MacDermid Autotype’s process is to coat UV cure solvent-free formulations, typically 3-30 microns thick onto polyester, polycarbonate and PMMA films, producing gloss, textured, or structured surfaces with customised properties. Pilot scale facilities are available in addition to full scale processing.

Characterisation & Evaluation 28 success through nanomaterials


MacDermid Autotype’s role was to evaluate the performance of three samples of ZnO dispersion in HDDA received from Lubrizol using a series of model coating formulations prepared containing HDDA, urethane acrylate oligomer and photoinitiator. Formulations were coated onto PET and UV cured using MacDermid Autotype’s standard process to produce final films approximately 5 microns thick containing approximately 6, 16 and 30 weight % ZnO.

The 6 and 16 weight % ZnO films displayed no adverse impact on abrasion resistance however the 30 weight % ZnO films showed decreased abrasion resistance. It was found that ZnO addition generally increased haze (Byk Gardner Haze-Gard Plus) when subjected to environmental testing (condensation and UV ageing on Atlas UVCON and UV Exposure on Heraeus sunlight tester). However, formulations based upon Solplus AX5 gave less haze than those based upon Solsperse 71000.

Intertek MSG offers a large range of characterisation equipment and unique materials expertise. Intertek MSG’s contribution was to characterise the ZnO powder raw material, the ZnO dispersions created by Lubrizol and the ZnO containing films manufactured by MacDermid Autotype.

It was concluded that smaller particle size ZnO dispersions will be required for better optical properties and that co-formulation with organic UV absorbers and stabilisers may be required to optimise weathering performance. Other formulation changes may be necessary to improve abrasion resistance.

Methodology Commercial high purity un-coated ZnO powder (Nanox 200), manufactured by flame spray pyrolysis, was obtained from Elementis Specialties. Typical surface area was quoted as 20m2/g, equivalent to ~55 nm primary particle size. Lubrizol Advanced Materials measured viscosity profiles for potential dispersants and identified the three best performing dispersants from their range as: n Solsperse 28000 (lower polarity polyester comb-type with amine anchor) n Solsperse 71000 (higher polarity polyester comb-type with amine anchor) n Solplus AX5 (acidic anchor alkoxylate chain)

Formulations were optimised using a Scandex / glass bead pre-screen milling process, with final formulations prepared on a WAB RL mill. All dispersions produced had an average particle size <100nm and possessed excellent stability. Fig 4 Disc Centrifuge analysis of dispersions

MacDermid Autotype evaluated the three dispersions produced by Lubrizol Advanced Materials in coated film production. Sample 44 (Solsperse 28000) was immediately rejected because of formulation instability problems when mixed with acrylate oligomer. The remaining dispersions based upon Solsperse 71000 and Solplus AX5 showed good optical properties at the 6 weight % ZnO level. However, films manufactured at the 16 and 30 weight % ZnO levels were slightly hazy to the naked eye. Overall, ZnO addition improved adhesion performance on ageing, although 30 weight % ZnO was required for improvement in pure sunlight testing adhesion.

Fig 3 Formulation details

Intertek MSG investigated ZnO particle size within the dispersions created by Lubrizol Advanced Materials via Photon Cross Correlation Spectroscopy (PCCS) and Disc Centrifugation (DC). With PCCS, reproducible data were obtained, with all dispersions very stable to dilution (required for analysis). Mean diameters (by volume) were measured as: n Solsperse 28000 75.2nm n Solsperse 71000 73.0nm n Solplus AX5 90.6nm

Photon Cross Correlation Spectroscopy measures hydrodynamic diameter, which will include a contribution from particle and dispersant. The larger size of the Solplus AX5 dispersed sample compared to the Solsperse 28000 and Solsperse 71000 samples is consistent with differences in the structures of the dispersants. Disc Centrifugation again generated reproducible data. However, smaller mean diameters by volume were obtained compared with those measured by PCCS: n Solsperse 28000 58.9nm n Solsperse 71000 56.8nm n Solplus AX5 55.7nm

Calculated mean diameters by number were measured as: n Solsperse 28000 38.8nm n Solsperse 71000 37.5nm n Solplus AX5 34.9nm

In the platelets, ZnO crystallography showed variable orientation Acknowledgement With respect to the coatings, little ZnO aggregation was observed in application coatings (Solsperse 71000 and Solplus AX5), although some nanoparticle chains were evident. Within the coatings the particles sit in partial monolayers at the interfaces with substrate and air; platelets tended to be aligned parallel to the interface. This effect may be detrimental to adhesion of the films to the substrate, but confer enhanced scratch resistance. Overall Conclusions n ZnO is well dispersed in both the dispersions and coated films n Particle size measurements using various techniques correlate well and show mean particle sizes in the 30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 90nm range n Crystallite sizes correlate well with particle size n Particle size distributions need to be further reduced to improve optical properties (haze) n Larger platelet morphology probably results in major contribution to haze n Platelet alignment at the substrate-film interface may adversely affect adhesion n Platelet alignment at the film-air interface may enhance scratch resistance

Teesside University Sensing the need for innovation

Teesside University’s Science 2 Business (S2B) Hub, an industry-led partnership that drives to create projects and innovative solutions for ‘science using’ small to medium enterprises (SMEs), is helping to support companies through a project part financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund 2007-13. One such company is Electrochemical Sensor Technology (EST) Ltd, an SME based in County Durham, who provide expertise in the research, development, design and manufacture of high quality electrochemical sensors. With a chemical sensor development facility they also provide a range of electrochemical testing services. EST recently introduced a new portable sensor to measure ammonium ions (NH4+) dissolved in liquids. The sensor offers significant technical and commercial advantages and uses a disposable sensor probe for each measurement. The probe deposits a noble metal via screen printing onto a ceramic substrate, whilst the meter provides a measurement range of 0 to 50 ppm wt/vol ammonium ions in solution (NH4+).

Blank screen printed noble metal electrode

Following initial contact with the S2B Hub at their Functional Polymers event, EST realised the potential of collaborating with the Hub to investigate the effect of mechanical and electrochemical polishing of screen printed electrodes.

Screen printed electrodes were used for the detection of analyte’s from drinking water and dilute ammonia solution. The sensor was used to characterise a number of noble metal electrodes. Optical microscopy was used for visual surface characterisation and determination of the noble metal nanoparticle distribution in the electrode before and after mechanical and electrochemical polishing. Activity of the electrode is predominately dependent on the printed active area available for electrochemical detection. To measure reproducibility the active area of the electrode was evaluated using the Randles-Sevcik equation. Mechanical/electrochemical polishing generally restores/improves the activity of composite electrochemical sensors and biosensors enhancing sensitivity and activating the active electrode area to offer reproducible and stable electrochemical detection. The experiments demonstrated a high level of repeatability and robustness of the electrode after several repeated measurements, with only negligible decrease in current. Dr John Dobson, Technical Director of EST, said, ‘As a result of the successful laboratory-based activity, further collaboration with Teesside University is planned to research and develop screen printed electrodes for other sensor applications’.

Nano is crucial to economic growth We all know that innovation is the successful commercialisation of new ideas and that innovation is crucial to economic growth. It is also true to say that innovation is an international issue; investors, partners, markets are both home and overseas.

When it comes to innovation, there is no doubt that UK nanoscience and nanotechnology is world class and it here that UK innovation shines. Nanotechnology enabled products and processes impact virtually all sectors and show promise for new markets with disruptive innovation. This is why nanotechnology is crucial to economic growth and attractive for investors. So how do we accelerate UK innovation to economic advantage? Maintaining visibility is critical. Cutting overheads, freezing wages, headcount reductions may all be deemed necessary in certain circumstances but without maintaining visibility new investment, new partners and new customers will be near impossible to secure; the world will not beat a path to your door! So what’s the answer? Some help is available: UK Trade & Investment From an international perspective, part of the answer might be to engage with UK Trade & Investment. UK which works with UK companies to ensure their success in international markets by helping to find investors, partners and customers. UKTI also encourages overseas owned companies to look to the UK as their global partner of choice.

n UKTI Technology World which from 2005 to 2009 was essentially an ICT

The exciting new thinking that is nano-technology begins with a completely different way of looking at materials, a method of exploring their properties and coming up with revolutionary uses. Researchers in the field have also long realised that they key to success is to rule out nothing. At its heart of this rapidly developing science is the ability to control materials and devices at the atomic and molecular level, an approach that is enabling truly remarkable breakthroughs. Not for nothing is it being described in some quarters as the new industrial revolution. Ranging from clothing that can detect illness before its wearer even feels unwell to airplane wings that can seal their own cracks, nanotechnology offers much promise for the future. The reason such ideas are being constantly developed is that thinking about materials on the nano-scale brings about a new way of viewing things. Scientists are discovering ever more ways in which materials behave differently at very small scales. Materials reduced to the nanoscale can show different properties compared to the macroscale. For example, opaque substances can become transparent, stable materials can turn combustible and insoluble materials can become soluble. Once scientists realised the extent of the changes, they were able to start developing processes and products which performed like nothing seen before. Supporting the work is synthetic chemistry, which has reached the point where it is possible to prepare small molecules for just about any structure, which can used to manufacture a wide variety of chemicals for use in the pharmaceuticals industry, for example, or in manufacturing processes dependent on polymers. 42 success through nanomaterials

The result has been the birth of many new companies and a changing focus for other more established ones. One of the major sectors to benefit has been the computer industry where the use of nano-science has allowed the development of smaller, quicker and more powerful devices. The same is true for the world of hand-held devices, which is advancing at a staggering rate. Medicine has benefited as well because nano-science is allowing for more sophisticated monitoring than ever, allowing doctors to look deep within the body to carry out their analysis. The potential for rapid and more effective diagnosis is what excited the medical sector and is already allowing scientists to develop new cures and treatments. Industry is also benefiting. Nano-science has allowed the development of everything from new-generation lighting to automotive sensors, aircraft technologies to new design disciplines and ways of manufacturing things. Everywhere you look, nano-science is making its mark and changing the world in which we live. It all started with a new way of viewing the basic properties of materials - and one knows where it will end. This is just the beginning. .

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, Director 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.

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 cost-effective 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”.

University College London Materials Science and Simulation at UCL

The Industrial Doctorate Centre in Molecular Modelling and Materials Science at University College London (M3S 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 Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 M3S IDC with modern training facilities and dedicated research labs to support 10-15 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 M3S 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 CO2 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 CO2 sequestration. 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 M3S IDC is in the response of glass to heat and light, where M3S 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 50 success through nanomaterials

the healthcare remit is one of the key problems facing the pharmaceutical 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 M3S 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 M3S IDC students vary from large multi-national corporations to medium-sized or start-up companies and national research laboratories.

The importance of IP to business Knowledge is power, they say. Well in business, knowledge is profits, which is why Intellectual Property (IP) is so crucial in a field like nano-technology where developments occur at a bewildering speed. The winners in the race to the next breakthrough are those companies that know how to protect their ideas. They also realise that the value of IP is the way it can be integrated as part of business strategies, marketing, capital raising and research and development. They are the ones that put IP at the heart of everything that they do. As technology advances so rapidly, more and more businesses are incorporating IP strategies into their business plans, thereby protecting their competitive advantage for today, and ensuring their company’s financial success for tomorrow.

strategy based on a registered trade mark. Or a company may decide that a patent is not worthwhile and that maintaining secrecy and using confidentiality agreements will provide enough time in which to develop brand recognition and develop new products and services. But those agreements need to be properly drawn up. Companies considering the protection of their ideas need to consider a number of points: n Identify all IP issues associated with their business and incorporate them

into the business plan. IP should never be an after-thought. n Check that they really do own all IP used in the business and have the

right to use it. Such checks are vital. Those businesses know that they need to develop a more strategic approach to protecting their IP and better commercially exploiting opportunities as well as being aware of developments made by other firms and organisations on which they can build. Such a comprehensive approach ensures that the development of their ideas is properly managed and well protected.

n Identify key staff involved in developing, maintaining and protecting

Bt IP is a complex business and it is strongly recommended that companies consult a specialist to assist in IP strategies, not least because this is not a ‘one size fits all’ business. The IP challenges vary with each different business.

IP and ensuring that they realise the importance of protecting ideas and products in development. n Educate all staff on the importance of IP to the business and how to protect it. n Consider insuring IP against infringement and also against their accidental infringement of someone else’s IP. n Search the patent, trade mark and design databases, as well as other literature and the Internet, to ensure that ideas are new and that a course of action will not infringe the rights of others.

For instance, a company may need to take out a patent on a new product whereas another firm may need to register a design or develop a branding

Once those steps have been taken, a company can develop its ideas confident that they are protected.

Nanotechnology Patents

Tim Russell, Partner at D Young & Co LLP reviews recent trends in patent filings.

Patents are important to areas of industry, such as the nanomaterial sector that are reliant on innovation to drive them forward. Patents provide a way of securing financial rewards for those individuals and companies who commit to investing in research and development.

Nanotechnology The number of patent filings can reflect the level of innovative activity experienced in different sectors. In fact, it is now possible to track the number of nanotech related patent applications and a recent OECD report has documented this. Looking back, the number of nanotech related patent applications filed at the European Patent Office (EPO) increased from the middle of the 1980’s to the beginning of the 1990’s and then this trend slowed down until the middle of the 1990’s. However, too much should not be read into this slow growth as over the same period patent filings relating to all technologies followed a similar trend. What happened next is evidence of the growth in the nanotech sector. From the middle of the 1990’s to the middle of the 2000’s, there was a rapid increase in the number of nanotech related patent applications filed at the EPO whereas such a rapid rise was not observed in the average number of overall patent filings. From 1996 to 2002, the average annual growth rate of nanotech patent filings was calculated to be about 15%. 58 success through nanomaterials

The same trends were observed in nanotech related Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) patent filings (i.e. international patent applications). In 1990 a total of 52 PCT applications were classified as relating to “Chemistry – Micro-structural and nanotechnology”. In 2000, the number had risen to 941, and by 2007 it had jumped to 2,617. Similar figures for the subsequent years are not fully available and therefore more recent trends in nanotech related patent filings can only be predicted based on figures available for overall patent filings covering all technologies. A significant factor in recent years has been the recent economic downturn which has had an adverse effect on overall R&D spending and therefore a lower level of overall patent filings would be expected. Two recent reports appear to confirm we have already seen a decrease in overall patent activity!


Worldwide The first report published by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) details the numbers of patent filings around the world each year. Some of the data makes interesting reading. The report initially focuses on the recent trend from the early 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, where there has been a steady increase in the number of patent applications filed year-by-year. The rate of growth has varied from region to region, country to country, however all parts of the world have experienced rates of growth. However, although the total number of patent applications filed across the world increased by 2.6% in 2008, compared to 2007 this represented the lowest growth rate since the early 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the dot-com crisis adversely affected patent filing numbers. In fact, a more detailed analysis of the data relating to 2008 suggests that the figures for 2008 could have been a lot worse if it had not been for the substantial growth in patent filings observed in China (+18.2%). For example, in 2008 no growth in the number of patent filings was observed in the US, and a decline in patent filings was observed in Japan (-1.3%) and South Korea (-1.1%). In view of this, it is conceivable had China not witnessed such a significant rise, the total number of patent filings would have actually declined. Perhaps inevitably, a decline did occur the next year. In 2009, the final data (when available) is expected to show an overall decrease in worldwide patent filings. This provisional analysis is based on data obtained from the nine patent offices with the most patent applications filed per year. The total number of patent applications filed at these nine offices fell by 2.9% in 2009. Most badly affected was the Japanese Patent Office which experienced a 10.8% decrease. European countries included in the report also experienced significant drops in patent filing activity. Germany, the UK and France witnessed 4.5%, 3.9% and 3.6% decreases respectively. The report also highlights a similar reduction in PCT applications. The total number of PCT applications filed in 2009 fell by 4.5%, compared to 2008, largely due to a drop in US resident applications. In fact, the US accounted for three-quarters of the total drop.

Again, China bucked this trend. The number of Chinese originating PCT applications actually grew (8.5%). Europe A second report also highlighted a downward trend in European patent activity. The number of overall patent applications filed at the EPO in 2009 fell for the first time in 20 years: an 8% drop from 146,600 applications filed in 2008 to 135,000 applications filed in 2009. The EPO report also describes the origin (by country) of the applications filed. There are some interesting variations. Within Europe, Germany was once again the most prolific filer of European patent applications (18.7% of the total), followed by France with 6.6%. In contrast, the UK contributes only 3.6% of the total number behind both the Netherlands (5%) and Switzerland (4.4%). Perhaps worryingly, whilst all European countries filed less patent applications in 2009 than in 2008, the percentage drop was greater in the UK than in comparison to each of France, Switzerland and Sweden. Does this put UK companies at a competitive disadvantage? From countries outside Europe, the top filer of European patent applications is still the United States who account for 24.5% of the total (cf. Japan 14.8%, and South Korea 3.1% of the total). In real terms, this equates to 33,000, 20,000 and 4,200 patent applications respectively. The increasing significance of China is also evidenced in this report. The biggest rise in patent filing numbers originating from outside Europe was observed from China. Chinese companies filed a total of 1600 applications in 2009; that represents a 9% increase compared to 2008 figures. Yet again, China bucked the downward trend observed in other countries. This is in stark contrast to the fall in EPO patent filings observed from the US (down 11%) and from Japan (down 14%). The Future Signs that the adverse effect on patent filings caused by the economic downturn is behind us are included in the WIPO report referred to above. Preliminary findings relating to the first 6 months of 2010 show that the overall number of PCT applications has increased compared to 2009. If this data turns out to be reliable and the figures for the second half of 2010 are equally as good as the first half, patent filings would enjoy a return to growth in 2010. Furthermore, if the link between R&D spending and patent filings is reliable, the nanotechnology sector perhaps has reason to be more optimistic than others. Overall industrial R&D spending in the U.S. is expected to increase in 2010 by up to 3% and three areas of research have been highlighted as benefiting most . One of these is nanotechnology. Hopefully this boost in investment fully benefits the nanotechnology sector and we can look forward to periods of growth once again. In due course, we should be able to observe a corresponding increase in the rate of nanotech related patent filings.

Keeping on the right side of the law The law, it is said, is a minefield, which is why seeking expert legal advice is crucial in so many situations. Those people who have tried to save money by dispensing with the services of a solicitor have often found themselves deep in trouble because they ignored that basic mantra. The reason lawyers are so important lies in the complexity of law, a complexity that is constantly changing. Take business law: everything from health and safety rules to production legislation can present challenges and a single mistake can lead to a potentially costly breach. The result could be a fine, a court appearance or a large compensation pay-out.

Patent law is important as well because, once an idea is recognised as unique and owned by one particular individual or company, then it is protected. By registering a product or idea, there is a paper trail which can be used should it turn up elsewhere. Each and every one of these areas presents great challenges for companies and may require expert legal guidance so it is always worth seeking out those companies that specialise in the field in question. Some lawyers specialise in workplace legislation, for instance, others are experts in IP and Patents, others can advise on health and safety and the law relating to contractors.

There is also a myriad of law surrounding competition: when is a claim unfair, is a product over-hyped, are the statements made about it correct, is an unfair advantage being taken over a competitor? Or by a competitor?

Each area holds within it the potential to cause a business major problems but by hiring in experts the chances of anything going amiss is greatly reduced.

But within the scientific field, there is another reason why the law is so important. In a sector where innovation is constantly bringing forward new ideas, companies need to be aware of the legislation governing Intellectual Property (IP) and Patents.

The basic, overriding message is never mess with the law. Never assume that you know better than the experts, never gamble on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;barrack room lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; who reckons they are right, and never leave until tomorrow something that you need to do today.

IP is crucial because many companies within the industry come up with ideas which are developments of existing science and technology and defining how to protect and use them is crucial.

Ignoring the advice can be as costly as it comes, seeking and taking advantage of it leads to peace of mind and a company that is much more secure.

That is why understanding IP and knowing how best to register new ideas is important for companies. More than one company has lost out on millions in profits because they were too slow to register their idea as unique. 62 success through nanomaterials

Exciting future for electronics Electronics play a crucial part in the nano-technology field with a wide range of companies needing to keep up to date with the latest developments.

It is a field that covers a wide area and has seen many of the most important breakthroughs of recent years. For electronics, its role within nano-technology is an example of the sector’s enduring importance. Electronics experts are involved in all sorts of work, including the development of ever more sophisticated semiconductors and devices used in applications including photovoltaic energy conversion and communications systems. Development of thin film transistors for electronic displays and imaging systems has also become increasingly important and has led to breakthroughs in fields as diverse as credit card development and lighting. One of the reasons electronics is so important is the sector’s ability to produce devices that are ever-smaller, allowing many of the nano breakthroughs. In the past, the size of electronic devices was a drawback for companies attempting to produce small devices. However, the electronics industry has risen to the challenge, allowing nano to take huge strides forward. Another reason for the importance of electronics is its capacity to come up with devices that are faster and more powerful, allowing the nanotechnology sector to create whole new generations of products. As a result, electronics specialists are being utilised in everything from biochemical sensing to nanoscale transistors for analog and digital signal processing. 68 success through nanomaterials

One of the areas in which this kind of work is proving invaluable is the field of medical diagnostics, supporting a move away from large devices based in hospitals towards much smaller hand-held ones that are mobile and can provide important medical information in people’s homes or on the scene of incidents. Such technologies are transforming the world of medical care. Of course, one of the biggest areas in which electronics has been so important is the rapid advances made by the computing world, with advances in technology allowing ever more complex and powerful computers. Indeed, it is predicted that the computation speed of microprocessors doubles every 18 months. However, although the industry has been able to keep pace with this trend, the ability to make further advances becomes ever more challenging and is one of the main priorities of the electronics industry. Another area attracting great interest is printed electronics. As the sector develops, the sector is bringing about widespread, very low-cost, electronics for applications such as flexible displays, smart labels, animated posters and clothing as well as applications for use in the scientific and medical fields. The new technology’s ability for printing on flexible substrates also allows electronics to be placed on curved surfaces, for example, putting solar cells on vehicle roofs. All in all, electronics today is as exciting and challenging as ever it was.

When seeking help from outside Consultancy is a key part of the business world and many of the brightest ideas and greatest breakthroughs owe something to the contribution of consultants somewhere along the line. Management consultants are called in to help organisations with a variety of problems. Some get the call to help a company improve efficiency, others to help identify cost savings, others to advise on a wide range of other issues. They operate across many disciplines. They may provide assistance with change management, coaching, technology implementation, strategy development, product development or operational improvement services. One of the reasons consultants are so important is that, because of their relationships with numerous organisations, they are aware of industry best practice. They know what the industry wants and have the capacity to adapt the ideas they have seen elsewhere into tailor-made packages for their clients. The result of this is that business consulting is acknowledged to provide sound advice and experience, making it a valuable resource for companies. When this professional advice is needed, company executives often like to look outside the organisation because the involvement of a third person can be very effective. Consultants are a new set of eyes, Sometimes, people within businesses cannot see solutions to problems because they are so immersed in the day to day job, whereas consulting firms come in and look afresh at the situation. Management consultants generally bring their own methodology to the job in hand, coming up with the best way to proceed with tasks, the best way to look at the challenges.

The first thing the consultant will do is analyse the situation, gather the data, talk to staff, find out perceptions within the company and identify the need. This first step is vital because it allows the consultant to formulate a strategy. A few days spent researching at the start of a project provides clarity of thought and can save a lot of time and effort further down the line. Once a plan has been laid out, the consultant will work with staff to identify what is needed, the team which has to be put together, the goals driving its work, the timeline for completion and the budget required to obtain results. Once the groundwork has been done, the business consultant will outline the proposed strategy at a presentation, setting out options, suggesting ways forward. Once that process has been put in place, clients are encouraged to provide their feedback during the process and at a post-project review. Consultants have always said that the free and open sharing of information is crucial to the success of a project. A consultant will tell you that it is important that everyone works together, that consultants operate as part of the team. 72 success through nanomaterials

Importance of technology providers Technology providers are crucial to a rapidly developing industry such as nanoscience; they are, for many companies, the glue that hold things together. The reason for their importance is that companies working on bright ideas need to move quickly in order to keep ahead of the competition. For many companies, particularly smaller ones, their speciality is coming up with ideas but it would take them far too long to develop the technology that they need to take the innovation onto the next stage. That is why they partner with the businesses that provide the technology needed to make the ideas work. For many businesses, the technology provider allows them to thrive because they bring the technological expertise and experience needed to take ideas onto their next stage. The same is true of many large businesses that see the sense of bringing in outside help. The approach can be very effective because it allows the researchers to move onto the next bright idea. And it is a two-way process: very often the work done by the technology provider itself develops into innovations which can led the R and D teams onto their next projects. As a result, recent years have seen a growth in the number of companies seeking to fulfil this role, everything from digital innovators to equipment manufacturers, software developers to Internet and communications businesses. Their common characteristics are an ability to innovate and to work in a flexible way.

74 success through nanomaterials

One of the effects of the growth in technology provision has been a concerted drive to attract the next generation of employees. The British Government estimates that levels of employment in the information technology sector, for example, have almost doubled in the past 12 years but the number of young people entering the sector has not kept pace. That is why the Government has been working with companies, industry organisations and universities and schools to make such careers attractive. Their message to young people has been that technology provision is crucial to the health of the UK economy and can make for rewarding careers. The figures underline the viewpoint. Government statistics suggested that every year fewer young people choose to take up an IT-related degree, with a drop of around half (46 per cent) since 2001, when 27,000 students were enrolled on technology degree courses, which fell to 14,700 in 2005. Therefore, it says, it is vital to attract more talent to the industry in order to maintain economic success. Universities have already taken on board the message and many leading institutions now have a very strong focus on technology. Indeed, many of the brightest young talents in the industry started off as university students developing their skills in the classroom.

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

DOWNSTREAM PROCESSING

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.

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.

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

Designed for high speed powder mixing, combining particles into composites in a dry process without binders, by applying mechanical force. The Nobilta can also be used for particle surface modification. MECHANOFUSION®

Other processing possibilities include high shear mixing and coating on the Hosokawa Cyclomix, fluid bed agglomeration using the Agglomaster or Hosokawa’s latest development, stirred bulk freeze drying, designed to handle thermo-sensitive powders, fragile materials and ultrafine wet nanopowders. 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. Hosokawa are able to design and build bespoke installations required to contain large pieces of equipment or larger processing areas. Hosokawa Micron engineers are able to work directly with customers to create unique nano-composites and engineered particles to meet specific demands and giving customers access to the best resources in pioneering particle design.

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 multicomponent 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. Above: AMS Mini (Mechanofusion) Right: Nobilta 76 success through nanomaterials


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 n X-ray diffraction n 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. 78 success through nanomaterials

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 sub-surface 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. 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.

Brunel University Materials Processing Technology

The Wolfson Centre for Materials Processing (incorporating The Centre For Phosphors And Display Materials) at Brunel University was set up in 1987. It is lead (since January 2006) by Prof Jack Silver (Executive Director), and is known internationally for its expertise in polymer and materials processing technology. Since then the Centre has grown dramatically, Key staff include four full time Profs (Jack Silver, Robert Withnall, , Jim Song, and Poopathy Kathirgamanathan), one part time Prof (Asim Ray), three visiting Profs (two, John Fyson and Chris Winscom are ex-Kodak, and the other, Daniel den Engelsen, is ex-Philips, Netherlands), two readers (Peter Allen and Karnik Tarverdi), two lecturers (George Fern and Wenhui Song) and an RCUK fellow (Paolo Coppo).

SEM of a nanoparticle coated nickel micro foam

The Centre carries out pure and applied research in four main areas: 1. Developing new polymer and composite processing technology; 2. Developing methodologies and formulations for the processing of bio degradable polymers and the reprocessing of waste polymers; 3. Developing and characterising phosphors and materials for displays and lighting; 4. Producting nano-particles (of phosphor and other ceramic materials) and incorporating them into polymers to form functional composites for new applications where the properties are enhanced relative to those of the components. Recently, we have built on our expertise in recycling polymers to recycle other waste materials and are developing a new area of research: 5. Recycling industrial waste materials into useful products. The rationale is to bring together the waste streams of Utility companies such as E.ON and Thames Water to make products such as fertilisers. Materials Processing in areas 1 and 2:The overall aim of our focused research on polymers, composites and biopolymers is to contribute to the development of the science and technology of manufacturing processes that produce solids, semi-solids and liquids exhibiting specified compositions and microstructures, throughout the volume of the finished product, as required, to impart optimum physical properties. The approach is based largely on the controlled application of new mixing concepts and of understanding macroscopic shears and pressure profiles. 80 success through nanomaterials

Luminous efficacy measurement of high brightness LED

In essence, these processes, together with work on biodegradable formulations, highly filled polymers, and compound development involving the inclusion of nanoclays and carbon nanotubes in polymeric composites, together with renewed activityin recycling, represent the themes underlying a substantial proportion of activities of the Centre. This work on moulding and extrusion processes has generated a significant portfolio of patents and intellectual property rights alongside a deserved reputation for technical know-how which is also reflected in commercial licences and spin-out ventures. This work confirms validity of the aims and operating principles, as evidenced by the many collabor-ative UK and European projects. The Centre receives funding from industrial organisations in the UK and overseas, the European Union and UK Government funding agencies, DTI/TSB, EPSRC, DEFRA. Facilities for Polymer Processing A wide range of industrial processing techniques are used, with particular emphasis on polymer mixing, extrusion and moulding technologies, including unique mixing and injection moulding techniques developed at the Centre. Research is underpinned by extensive state of the art instrumentation for thermal, rheological, chemical and structural characterisation of materials (both micro and macro), together with modern mechanical and related physical testing facilities.


Another form of powder electroluminescence is direct current EL (DCEL). This technology was pioneered in the group. The emission is bright orange. Simple x-y addressed displays are easily prepared. Photonic phosphors. In this branch of materials engineering a 3D periodic structure is given to a the phosphor allowing the wavelength of the light output to be controlled. Area 4 focuses on nanoparticle phosphors. We have developed methods for preparing highly uniform particle morphology and size. This is important for light extraction and particle deposition. This work has also given us experience in handling and analyzing nano-materials which are applicable to many topics in nano-materials.

Through collaboration with the School of Engineering and Design, the Centre also has access to materials design and process modelling expertise.

Area (4) is relatively new, only generating grant income in the last five years. It builds upon the combination of the polymer side with the expertise in phosphors and as such demonstrates how the growth of the Centre has helped to increase the potential for synergistic and collaborative research. In broad terms, the work here concentrates on two areas: making nanoparticle phosphors: and incorporation of these, or other nanoparticles, into polymers for a variety of applications.

Materials Processing in areas 3 and 4:The ‘Centre for Phosphors and Display Materials’ was established over 40 years ago at the University of Greenwich. It has over 450 man years of experience and development expertise. Prof Silver took over the leadership in 1996 moving from a readership at Essex University. In January 2006 the group moved to Brunel University. Area 3 is focused particularly on the study of materials that emit light (ultraviolet, visible, or infrared) when excited by different forms of energy. Some of the current research areas of interest to the group are listed below: LED phosphors as colour convertors for energy efficient solid state white light for general illumination. Cathodoluminescent phosphors:- materials that can be stimulated by electrons to emit light. Up-conversion/anti-Stokes phosphors. These emit photons of light of a higher energy than they absorb, e.g. they may absorb IR light and emit green light. These materials are of interest in security applications and communications. Compatibility with modern deposition methods (e.g. ink jet printing). Classical phosphor synthesis produces particles in the micrometer size range. We have successfully mastered synthetic procedures for reducing this size to facilitate the use of precise deposition techniques. Coatings for optimised lifetime and luminescence. Some emissive materials are intrinsically unstable and we have an interest in developing methods for abating their decay, (see image with BBSRC/York University grant). Alternating Current Electroluminescence (ACEL). Blue and green emission is possible with commercially available powder phosphors. Our interests lie in developing our patented formulations that enables a much simpler device architecture using only a single layer between two electrodes (that contains the ACEL phosphor powder, the ferroelectric powder and a binder in the one layer). This gives a much brighter device, reduces production time (as it has fewer layers) and increases productivity. We work on all areas of this technology from developing ink vehicle formulations (for printing displays) through to the basic research of understanding the materials.

A taste of the applications of this work can be seen from some large funded programmes undertaken in the last five years: 1. Anti Viral Nano Particles in polymers funded by SEEDA (partners were Sun Chemicals Ltd., Intrinsig Materials Ltd., Retroscreen Virtology Ltd., Pall Europe Ltd. and Queen Mary College). 2. 3-D Writing a TSB funded programme aimed at building up three dimensional electric circuits and displays using ink jet and screen printing methodology.

The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility can be used to produce a wide array of nanopowders ranging from single metal oxides such as Al2O3 to more complex mixed oxides or catalysts. 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 nanoparticle catalysts and other materials 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 82 success through nanomaterials

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.

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 CeO2 and doped CeO2 as polishing agents (Figure 3) for the microeletronics industry, catalysts for example Pd-Al2O3 for the synthesis for fine chemicals (Figure 4), nanophosphors and battery materials like LiFePO4 or LiMnPO4.

Getting health & safety right

Good health and safety practice at work is crucial to any business, however large or small. There are plenty of reasons why it matters, a major one of which is the need to meet legislative demands. Recent years have seen health and safety legislation having a greater impact than ever before on daily business life, and the laws are not just relevant to factories and chemical plants but also to smaller businesses and places like schools and leisure centres. There are several reasons why this has been happening but all are driven by the growing awareness of the need to preserve the safety of employees, contractors and visitors on sites. Barely a week goes by without a story in the national, local or specialist press about the consequences of a company or organisation failing in their heath and safety responsibilities. That is why more companies are increasingly turning to experts who can guide them through the myriad of measures that they need to take. Such specialists are able to take businesses through the increasingly complex health and safety legislation, ensuring that they meet the criteria relevant to their industries. The considerations only increase when you move into the scientific sector where companies may be dealing with hazardous and volatile substances.

According to the European Agency for Health and Safety at Work, good practice is also a way of ensuring that enterprises are successful and sustainable, and that economies thrive in the long term. They believe that a business underpinned by a passion for health and safety will find the effects permeating throughout the rest of its commercial life. The Agency points out that although businesses have moral and legal obligations to meet health and safety standards, and that it is impossible to quantify human suffering as a result of slip-ups in purely monetary terms, it is nevertheless still possible for a business to assess health and safety benefits in commercial terms. For example, it says, good practice n enhances ‘brand image’ and ‘brand value’ as a socially responsible

business - and that a poor image can impact on a business as well n reduces absences and increases the productivity of workers n increases motivation and the commitment of employees to the business n reduces business costs, such as insurance premiums, and business

disruption caused by accidents n enables enterprises to meet and exceed customer expectations, which

The effect of ignoring health and safety requirements in such areas can be long-lasting and devastating, not just for the person involved but for the employer, who may find themselves facing large compensation claims and having to deal with a damaged reputation for safety. Taken to the final extent, there may even be a prosecution with the company taken to court and hit with a hefty fine. And all because an easily-avoided problem was ignored. However, legislation is only half the story because good health and safety is also important in human and business terms. 84 success through nanomaterials

could be crucial when pitching to retain contracts. Get it wrong, and the opposite is true, says the Agency. For the individual, there are the costs of care and loss of earnings and for businesses, disruption, claims for damages, loss of goodwill and loss of confidence in management. All of which adds up to a strong reason for get health and safety right from the start.

The key to successful businesses Research and Development is where it all starts for business, that initial idea, that bit of innovative thinking, that sense that there is something worth exploring further, that asking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what if?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Without R and D, companies will stand still, forced to watch helplessly as the rest of their competitors take the lead and launch new products and processes. Successful businesses know that they must invest in R and D, that it may be expensive but that it has to be at the heart of their strategies for growth. A key part of the R and D process is analysis, researching what is already on the market, what ideas are being developed and identifying the gaps for new products, then setting about developing a way to fill them. The way R and D works differs from company to company but it is all based on the gathering and use of data, which is why technology providers specialising in the likes of software are important because they make the job more focused, quicker and more efficient. R and D starts with identifying the potential customer and analysing their needs; it is no good developing something that nobody wants. Researchers will asked the important questions. Who is our customer? What are his or her needs. Who is currently providing for them? Once that research has been done, the R and D teams can set about their core work. The answers to those initial questions allow them to channel research and development in the right direction. And it is not just about 92 success through nanomaterials

what the customers wants today - good researchers try to predict the future to work out what the customer will want in ten years times. Look at the rapid advances in communications technology to see an example of the reasons for the approach. It is not just within the laboratories and offices operated by companies that the R and D process takes shape. Universities are playing an increasingly important role in research as well. Many students focus on R and D as part of their studies, either on their way to a degree or in work carried out at post-graduate level. This, in turn, has made universities hotbeds of innovation as students take advantage of the expertise around them to develop their ideas. For many years, universities were seen as isolated from the commercial world but recent times have seen them embrace those commercial challenges with enthusiasm with both staff and students developing ideas which have led to spin-put companies. Many of the most exciting companies to emerge in recent years have been led by professors or their students. Businesses, for their part, have come to value the role of universities and are often to be found collaborating with them and their spin-out companies. The days of isolation are gone and the world of R and D is all the better for it.

Nanoscience @ School of Engineering & Computing Sciences Research & Facilities Much of the Durham work on organic and nanoelectronics is co-ordinated by The Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics (www.durham.ac.uk/ cmne). This was one Durham Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first interdisciplinary Research Centres, established in 1987 to promote relevant activities across academic departments within Durham, in particular, the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and the School of 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 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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, 200 sq metre 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.

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. A further ambitious interdisciplinary research programme is the Computational Carbon project, which combines the skills of Materials Scientists, Computer Scientists and Electronic Engineers within the School. An initial aim is to model and understand the behaviour of molecular networks (e.g. arrays of carbon nanotubes or conductive polymers). However, a long term goal is to build an electronic processor exploiting these architectures without reproducing individual component function - a computer without transistors!

BHR Group Ltd Multidisciplinary engineering in nanotechnology

In a changing world the continuous development of nanotechnology calls for a multidisciplinary engineering approach to solve the problems of today and the challenges of tomorrow, while continuing to advance and use this technology in the development of new and conventional engineering products and processes.

engineered correctly. Furthermore, the lack of scientific knowledge on tribological behaviour at micro and nanoscale, prevents integration of this knowledge into the design criteria of plain or combined systems. Industry’s current approach to the design of sliding systems using rubber-like materials, is based on “trial and error” supported by extensive experimental work.

The ‘Bottom up’ approach and the importance of scale transition One of the most challenging problems facing the future of research and development in nanotechnology is understanding and continuously improving fluid and material properties to allow future products and processes to be optimised and qualified for use at an industrial scale.

Kristal has led to the continuous improvement of materials strength and functional properties in modern engineering applications combined with the reduction of cost and weight by increasing the use of rubber and polymerlike materials. BHR have helped to develop coatings and functional surface properties of polymer, metallic and ceramic materials, in some cases replacing lubricants in critical applications.

A bottom up approach to engineering design involves working from nano to macroscale whereby we can design and optimise products at a given scale while considering the effects of scale transition of the product or process. We can achieve this by designing new experimental procedures based upon the real application conditions and combining this with a thorough development of advanced numerical models to describe the fluid and material behaviour allowing the product or process to be optimised. This allows validation across different scales from nano to macroscale. The challenge of modelling problems on multiple scales Current projects at BHR currently have a strong focus on multiscale behaviour of systems both from a physical and computational viewpoint as many of the properties of nanomaterials cannot be described on a single scale by traditional stochastic methods alone. Development of simulation tools for materials and fluids incorporating nanoscale particles must consider such solutions that tackle the challenge of coupling scales allowing the mechanical and chemical behaviour of the system to be better understood. Such tools can help solve many of today’s problems and will be fundamental to future developments in nanotechnology. Combining fluid engineering, material performance and product development The fusion of engineering and science disciplines within Nanotechnology projects at BHR group allow us to work across many industry sectors and tackle highly complex multidisciplinary problems combining our fluid and material engineering knowhow. Some of the projects we have been involved in demonstrate this aptitude allowing our clients to get more out of their products and processes and improve energy efficiency. The Development and scale-up of innovative nanotechnology-based processes into the value chain of the lubricants market (AddNano) Within engine oils and other lubricant applications, such as transmission fluids, and greases used in bearings, the potential exists for lubricants containing nanomaterials to significantly reduce friction and enhance machine durability. This can contribute to substantial energy savings, reduced equipment maintenance and longer machine lifetime. Advanced nanomaterials recently developed, such as inorganic fullerene-like materials (IF’s) and others, have shown some initial promise for their contribution to reducing friction and enhancing protection against wear. AddNano is developing such particles as additives dispersed within lubricants. These particles have the potential to replace conventional anti-wear additives such as Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphates (ZDDP’s). For engine oil applications, this in turn can assist in the performance of exhaust-treatment and accordingly reduce harmful emissions as exhaust catalysts tend to become poisoned by the Sulphur and Phosphorous in conventional additives. Knowledge-based Radical Innovation Surfacing for Tribology and Advanced Lubrication (Kristal) Techniques of surface modifications to improve the tribological properties of rubber-like materials is a rather unexplored field, and existing coatings designed to work with these materials can cause excessive wear if not 98 success through nanomaterials

Diagnostic Nanotech and Microtech Sensors (DINAMICS) DINAMICS aims to promote the uptake of nanotechnological approaches by developing an integrated cost effective nanobiological sensor for detection of bioterrorism and environmental assays. The prime deliverable is an exploitable lab-on-a-chip device for detection of pathogens in water using on-the-spot recognition and detection based on the nanotechnological assembly of unlabelled DNA. This uses DNA hybridisation sensors combined with microfluidics and signal conditioning/processing both on silicon and polymer substrates avoiding the use of external apparatus for fluid handling, electrical signal generation and processing.

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.

London Centre for Nanotechnology The London Centre for Nanotechnology is a UK-based multidisciplinary enterprise operating at the forefront of science and technology. Founded in 2003, it is a joint venture between University College London and Imperial College London and has operations at both the Bloomsbury and South Kensington sites.

In 2006 LCN moved into a purpose built eight floor building in Gordon Street, Bloomsbury, and it is here that the nano-fabrication Cleanroom is located, spread over two floors. The Cleanroom is managed by a dedicated support team of engineers and technicians, and is able to offer a service to the wider community including other academic institutions and industry. The preferred method of access is for users to become proficient in the use of the equipment their research requires, through a structured series of training modules, with the ultimate objective of undertaking all fabrication themselves. The support team provides safety and equipment training, can advise on technology issues and can also perform processing on behalf of clients with smaller projects. The types of technology fabricated within the facility include nano-spintronic devices, optoelectronics, thin film transistors, solar cells, microfluidics, bioMEMS, micropatterning and microlenses. 100 success through nanomaterials

The Cleanroom was designed into the building at the outset and care was taken to maximise the utility of the clean space by providing room for all support services in service areas immediately adjacent to where they are needed. The Cleanroom area is 225 m2, and is supported by 100 m2 of service space. The Cleanroom is arranged into three tunnels plus an Electron Beam Lithography room all of Class 1000 (Class ISO 6) quality. In addition, half the wet benches and the optical photolithography equipment benefit from additional filtration to the higher Class 100 (Class ISO 5) standard. Much of the equipment installed is similar to that used in a conventional silicon microelectronic facility, but LCN is working with a much wider range of materials to support research on nano-materials and devices. Substrate


types include silicon, III-V semiconductors, organics and diamond which are combined with biological and non-biological layers deposited using unconventional fabrication procedures. We can handle substrates ranging in size from several mm square up to 150mm diameter wafers. At the time the building opened, approximately three quarters of the equipment was new and was specified to work with 100mm & 150mm wafers. There are seven items of plasma equipment, two reactive ion etchers, two plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition tools with the ability to coat amorphous silicon layers, silicon oxides, nitrides and oxynitrides, two plasma cleaners and an advanced silicon etcher running the Bosch process for deep reactive of etching of silicon. Physical vapour deposition equipment includes three thermal evaporators and one electron beam evaporator, each of which has the capacity for up to four different materials. A three-target sputter system for insulators and metals has recently been installed, and a further sputter system is planned for delivery in early 2011. All this equipment has in situ thickness monitoring. We are able to deposit thin films of a large number of different materials including Cr, Au, Ag, Ni, Al, Ti, ITO, Sn & Ge. The centre tunnel of the Cleanroom is equipped with yellow light compatible with optical photolithography. We have two contact mask aligners able to accommodate the whole range of substrate sizes. Two separate spinner hotplate installations allow dedicated processing for optical resists and electron beam resists. Immediately adjacent is a range of wet benches for liquid-based procedures such as substrate cleaning, rinsing and drying, metal and insulator layer etching, and resist development. A Raith 150 TWO Electron Beam Lithography tool is installed that has the capability to expose features down to 10nm wide. This tool has a substrate capacity of 150mm square, and can operate in Fixed Beam Moving Stage and stitching modes.

Thermal processing is available in two conventional tube furnaces and a rapid thermal processor, both supplied with Oxygen, Nitrogen and Forming Gas. One furnace is reconfigurable to operate under vacuum as well as at ambient pressures. A full range of characterisation equipment is available. This includes SEM, FTIR, AFM, spectroscopic ellipsometry, four-point probe, surface profilers and optical interferometer. We have microscopes equipped with Nomarski illumination, image capture and feature size measurement. The LCN building has other laboratories that provide complementary facilities to the Cleanroom such as a backend lab equipped with a Disco automated saw, two wire bonders and GaAs scribing equipment for substrate cutting and bonding operations. There is also a separate 66m2 Class 10,000 (ISO Class 7) Cleanroom housing two Carl Zeiss Focused Ion Beam tools in the basement. Another lab has all of the equipment needed for generating PDMS replicas of SU8 moulds for BioMEMs and micropatterning. The Cleanroom is used by members and partners of the LCN, as well as external users operating under a contract with LCN. The users come from different traditional disciplines such as chemistry, physics, life sciences and electronics. These users are all at PhD or Post Doc level. For further details or to initiate a project with us please contact the Cleanroom manager, Steve Etienne at s.etienne@ucl.ac.uk. The LCN website http://www.london-nano.com/ provides further details.

From small things... Breakthroughs in nanotechnology are coming thick and fast. The potential is staggering, but the challenge is to make sure there are no log-jams in taking the latest knowledge out to where it can help solve real world problems. One of the ways the University of Surrey is addressing this issue is via its new Knowledge Transfer Account (KTA). Under this EPSRC programme, the University’s world-leading Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) works with partners in industry to turn its world-class research into projects with tangible economic and societal benefits. Surrey’s KTA provides flexible engagement with industry and the ability to match-fund projects to solve industrial problems. It speeds up decision-making and allows access to a wide range of laboratory facilities both inside and outside the University. With funding of £3.85m from the EPSRC, the Surrey KTA offers an opportunity to work with the University in using these funds to put nanotechnological innovations into practice.

For Surrey, this is business as usual. The University has always believed in generating knowledge that can be applied to real innovations, and was a pioneer in forging close links with government, business and industry. For example, in 2009 the University received £12m funding from EPSRC to enable knowledge transfer through Engineering Doctorate programmes, in which a researcher works on strategic research topics at sponsoring companies, with the costs shared between the company and the University. It has also doubled the number of its Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, one of the most successful programmes for collaboration between industry and academia.

Food for thought The nano food sector has become big business with some estimates suggesting that a large proportion of products used globally in the future will be based on nano-technology in some form. The UK Government is already investigating ways in which the nanotechnology sector can develop and has already produced a strategy, setting out ways in which the UK can promote the responsible development of nanotechnologies across all sectors, including food. Such initiatives influence everything that the industry does but the evidence is clear; if companies can prove the value of their work it offers the chance to change the way we eat. Looking further ahead, among ideas being considered are that the food of the future should be as a tailored as possible to the needs of the customer. That kind of thinking means that it could be possible to come up with designer foods with flavours, colours and nutritional qualities built in to meet individual needs. There may also be important applications for nano-technology in the development of foods that can be grown in harsh environments, offering possible solutions to the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food shortage. At a time when there are concerns about drought and rising global temperatures, nano-technology may yet prove to be one of the key answers to the threat of global starvation.

There are good reasons for this expectation because nano-technology can bring unique advantages to processed foods in many ways and has been playing an increasingly important role in the industry over recent years. That is because food technology has developed rapidly with companies using much more sophistication in the way they develop new products and the way they harness scientific developments. The time for new thinking has well and truly arrived. Many of the technologies involved are at an early stage and much more research is required but the signs are that nano-science does have a major part to play in the years to come. In many ways the industry is building on existing practice because nanomaterials are a natural part of food processing and the production of conventional foods, because the properties of many foods rely on nanometre sized components. The research under way at the moment looks at the way in which manufactured nanoparticles can be added to food or changes made to existing ingredients in order to improve the end product. The possibilities may be exciting but one of the major issues facing the industry is the regulatory issues surrounding the sector. Companies developing new products will have to demonstrate that their work based around food additives and ingredients does not put the consumer at risk. Food safety is high on the Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda and companies seeking to take advantage of nano-technology in food always have to consider public perceptions. 104 success through nanomaterials

technical opportunities for use of micro- and nanotechnology in food and drink products can be identified and assessed n A forum for discussions on the use of micro- and nanotechnology in the food & drink industry n A watching brief on the potential emerging technologies that can bring benefits for both the industries and the consumers n Pre-competitive collaboration projects to demonstrate the feasibility and practicality of micro- and nanotechnology in food and drink science Through its NanoWatch© programme, Leatherhead has developed its knowledge on nanotechnology and its expertise to translate technical and regulatory information into real food and drink products, as well as into packaging and manufacturing processes. Being at the forefront, and through involvement with the United Kingdom’s Parliamentary House of Lords’ Select Committee on Science & Technology’s “Nanotechnologies and Food” Report, Leatherhead can offer research on: Ingredient Functionality & Product Applications n Improvement of product quality in terms of texture and stability using our extensive practical expertise and kitchen and pilot plant facilities combined with ingredients and microstructural facilities. n Enhancement of products’ sensory attributes through use of trained panels and consumers n Evaluation of packaging performance during storage through use of established physical and shelf-life testing regimes Nutritional and Health Benefits n Enhancement of nutritional benefits of food & drink products n Evaluation of health impact through clinical studies Packaging and Processing Efficiency n Use of nano-structured coatings on food contact materials including packaging and processing equipment Detection of Undesirable Components and Micro-organisms n Use of nano-sensors for detection and/or quantification of undesirable components and volatiles that affect the product quality and stability In addition to the technical support, Leatherhead can offer global regulatory support for use of nanotechnologies in food & drinks applications. 106 success through nanomaterials

Nanotechnology offers benefits both to the industry and also to the consumer. Examples include the generation of new products that are structured at the micro and nano levels with greater understanding of the role of individual ingredients in the taste, texture and stability of foods. There is a strong drive to create healthier foods with lower salt, sugar and especially fat, but it is important to the consumer that these products deliver as much satisfaction as the standard ones. One of the main advantages in considering nanotechnology is in the improved thinking behind the development of food products and consequently in relating the microstructure of foods to properties. All foods contain structures that give particular properties to the foods. For example: n Meat contains proteins arranged in the muscle in very precise namo-

arrays and the way these proteins are dispersed in the product affects the fat binding and texture of the meat. n In a similar way, the fat crystal structure is important in stabilising emulsions such as spreads and bakery products, and changes to the size and shape of the crystals affects the properties. n The distribution of fat in a product can change with storage and this is associated with changes to the flavour and texture during the shelf-life of the product. An example of this is in the distribution of fat in a freshly prepared biscuit compared to a stale biscuit (see Figs 1 and 2). In the fresh biscuit the fat is distributed fairly evenly around the starch but in the stale biscuit coalescence of the fat has occurred. Case Study By understanding how the individual ingredients are located in the food and the role they play, healthier products with better qualities can be made. An example of this is the restructuring of a high fat emulsion-based system such as mayonnaise using the knowledge and understanding of the product at the microscale. Standard high fat mayonnaise consists of small fat droplets in a water phase and this structure gives a creamy viscous mouthfeel that is pleasant to eat. In lower fat systems the number of fat droplets is reduced as the level of fat is lowered. This means that the water phase needs to be thickened and stabilised with an additive such as starch. This combination while providing a lower fat stable alternative does not give the same creamy fatty mouthfeel as the high fat standard product. However, if the product is restructured so that some of the water phase is dispersed in the fat droplets then the resulting low fat product gives a very good taste and sensory experience. These water in oil in water emulsions are a natural way of redesigning food at the micro and nano level.

Potential Applications Other potential applications for nanotechnology include manufacture of delivery systems based on natural food ingredients; restructuring of ingredients and products to give new properties that are of benefit, and new sensors that offer the ability to carry out rapid analyses of critical components or contaminants that might be present in foods. These are still at the

developmental stage but offer the promise of a new generation of analytical techniques based on the developments in nanotechnology in other fields. Leatherhead Food Research is unique in that the scientists at Leatherhead with their expertise in both science and its applications in the real world of the food industry, provide a bridge between science and industry in all areas of food safety, innovation, nutrition and regulatory.

A home for innovation

Science parks have increasingly become part of the modern landscape as businesses focus ever more of their work on innovation. With so many nations emerging as major economic forces, it is crucial for the UK to maintain its edge in those areas in which it leads the world. Bringing together experts in various fields is a major way of achieving that, which is where science parks come into the equation. They are designed to create a hotbed atmosphere in which ideas can be explored and where new inventions can emerge. Offering support to these new ideas is important because UK business has always been characterised by innovative approaches, from the great mining and shipbuilding engineers of the 19th Century through the scientists of the 20th Century to the digital innovators of the 21st Century. Each one, and many more like them, has played a part in making the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial landscape what it is. Science parks have been a crucial part of that process because they provide the opportunity for specialist businesses to cluster together. So what makes a good science park? One of the major factors is accommodation, where small businesses can rub shoulders with larger concerns. The good science parks are the ones which provide large-scale accommodation for big companies and laboratory and office space for small start-up companies with big ideas but who only need 200 sq m in their early days. Proximity between companies on science parks is seen as important. A small company trying to work in isolation can find life much more difficult 108 success through nanomaterials

than if they have a bright idea and are able to walk down the corridor or across the quadrangle to discuss it with another expert. And although business is competitive, the science park experience has shown that a strong sense of co-operation and collaboration can allow ideas to develop at a much quicker rate than if companies operated in their own little worlds. There are many UK science parks and most are characterised by their proximity to good transport links, be it a major roads or good air and railway links. Another notable characteristic is their proximity to universities. Knowledgebased businesses thrive in the environment created by links between science parks and those universities providing some of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brightest young stars in the field of science-and technology. Talk to some of the major figures in scientific circles and their stories started at university before continuing in the commercial world. Every year sees an emergence of more bright young talent and major companies are keen to recruit and support the next generation of innovators, either by taking on people or supporting small companies, because science moves ever more rapidly. Science parks are a fine way of allowing them keep pace.

Wilton Centre Ideal base for businesses - Established and new

One of the North East’s leading science and business parks, The Wilton Centre, is a well-regarded location that can accommodate businesses at every stage of their growth. Whilst the centre is well-known for its capacity to offer grow-on space to developing business its capacity to support new businesses working in the science, technology, engineering and life sciences sectors was given a huge boost with the announcement earlier this year of the development of a 10,000 sq ft facility incorporating ten specialist laboratories and office space. The Wilton Centre Innovation Accelerator Incubator - which has been designed by the Wilton Centre Facilities Management (WCFM) and CPI Innovation Accelerator teams - is due to be completed at the end of 2010. The promised new premises have attracted a lot of interest and one company - BioInnovel, a provider of bioprocess monitoring and control technologies – was so impressed that it has already signed up. Founded in Cambridge in 2006, BioInnovel develops and commercialises real-time rheology sensors and predictive optimal control software for bioprocesses in the Pharmaceutical, Environmental, and Agro-Food industries worldwide.

The sensors measure the mechanical properties of industrial bio-cultures using non-destructive ultrasonic testing. BioInnovel’s sensing technology can benefit R&D facilities through faster scale-up of new drugs and the plant operation of end-user bio-manufacturers. The company’s Founder & Technical Director, Joanna Vlahopoulou, said the presence in the Incubator of market sector specialists from CPI’s Innovation Accelerator team had been one of the deciding factors when considering their move to The Wilton Centre. “The collaboration with CPI will contribute to our company’s strategic growth as it will bring us nearer to the bio-industry customer base, and support the validation of our sensing technologies,” she explained. While awaiting completion of the Incubator, BioInnovel has taken up residence in temporary laboratory and office space at The Wilton Centre. Further details of the new development as well as opportunities for expansion, scale-up facilities and pilot plant are available at: www.wiltoncentre.com

Challenge our Innovation

The vast majority of nanomaterials manufacturers has been finding it difficult to scale-up their production processes with very few manufacturers being able to produce tens of tons of nanomaterials annually. Moreover, the complex nature of nanomaterials has raised certain doubts by end users regarding the technical reliability of these materials. To address these challenges, INNOVNANO (part of CUF, the largest Portuguese chemical group) has developed a unique and innovative proprietary patented process. The process is defined as high-pressure semi continuous process for the large-scale production of nanomaterials and advanced ceramic powders. High pressure (> 30,000 bars) and high temperature (range of 500°C to 2000°C) are combined with ultrafast quenching (up to 108 K/s to 109 K/s) in one single reaction step. Furthermore, the complete automation of the manufacturing process has resulted in minimum human intervention and eliminated downtime, thereby ensuring production maximization and quick response time to customers. The process has been controlled in such a way that competitive selection of precursors and production conditions is possible to tap the appropriate properties of metal oxides, doped metal oxides, and composites. Today, INNOVNANO offers several commercial nanoparticles in the range of 20 nm to 60 nm. This patented technology is useful to target the various mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, and other pertinent properties of these nanomaterials to cater to advanced coatings and advanced ceramics, as well as the energy sector and cosmetics industries. Different synthesis options have been created for preparing either single compound microparticles or nanoparticles, or a homogeneous mixture of various compounds in the same particle. The proper control of reaction kinetics has ensured that both partial and complete coatings could be easily synthesized in the manufacturing process. INNOVNANO is part of NANOFutures, the European initiative for sustainable development of nanotechnology, and is also part of the Nanotechnology Industries Association (N.I.A), which represents the industrial nanotechnology supply chain in Europe.
