This article reports that an European Union-funded project backed by Bayer Corp. and Unilever PLC will investigate unpredictable nanoparticle dispersion in liquids leading to easier manufacture of nanoproducts such as suncreams and plastics. Gul Ozcan-Taskin, project co-ordinator at BHR Group Ltd. said the action of nanoparticles in liquids is not fully understood and so conventional processing methods yield many mistakes. Nanoparticle behaviour in a liquid can be unpredictable, and lab-based processing methods often fail to translate to an industrial scale.
