UK Nanotechnologies 2011 survey

 
1. Please indicate which organisation sent you the survey
2. How do you best describe your organisation?
3. The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) defines nanomaterials* as follows:

A substance is defined as a nanomaterial if it satisfies all the elements below:

- Is a solid, particulate;
- Is intentionally manufactured at the nano-scale;
- Consists of nano-objects as defined under ISO;
- Contains aggregates and agglomerates; and
- 10wt.-% or more of nano-objects as defined by ISO - Or - 50 wt % or more of aggregates / agglomerates consisting of nano-objects.

ISO (ISO/DTS 80004-1) definition of nano-object: material with one, two or three external dimensions in the nanoscale.
NOTE Generic term for all discrete nanoscale objects.
