What is it about?

Nanomaterial synthesis methods are vast. However, there are few coordinated and agreed upon methods for assessing nanomaterials in the many lenses of green chemistry or sustainability. This paper presents a broad perspective of metrics and focuses on emerging areas such as natural language processing, informatics, and automation as means to contribute to innovation and provide for more green/sustainable nanomaterials.

Why is it important?

This review is important in the context of the community of practice that was brought together to discuss and promote the topic of green and sustainable nanomaterials. This review is a part of a special issue dedicated to the topic and was part of an American Chemistry Society Symposium.


There are many informatic tools that nanotechnologists could use to promote knowledge and enhance lab capabilities, such as contributing an electronic nano-recipe to a larger synthesis cook-book!
