Document Title:Nanotechnologies — Methodology for the classification and categorization of nanomaterials

This Technical Report describes a classifying system, termed a “nano-tree”, upon whose basis wide ranges of
nanomaterials can be categorized, including nano-objects, nanostructures and nanocomposites of various
dimensionality of different physical, chemical, magnetic and biological properties.

However, the classifying system presented in this Technical Report does not claim to provide full coverage of
the whole range of nanomaterials.
