Goal or Need:It will be an ongoing challenge to communicate complex concepts in definitions in a manner that is meaningful and practical for stakeholders in research, commercial applications and government. The development of core terms and their definitions has benefited from discussion over time concerning scientific, regulatory and consumer usage. The science is still emerging, as is our capacity to measure and characterize nanomaterials, or more generally matter, in the nanoscale. Care needs to be taken to ensure the latest scientific information is incorporated into the terminology as it becomes available.
