The last part of the course is focused on the applications of polymeric nanoparticles. The most traditional field of application is waterborne paints, adhesives, and coatings. The details of some formulation and application issues will be presented. Of more recent emergence is the field of redispersible latices and pressure sensitive adhesives.
A recent boom in the range of application of polymeric nanoparticles is the sector of biotechnology, and more specifically biomedical products. These include the critical delivery of sensitive drugs and medical diagnostics. Last but not least, polymeric nanoparticles have found their ways in EMO devices.
Polymeric nanoparticles are predominantly prepared by wet synthetic routes. Several industrial processes will be described. Emphasis will be placed on the type of polymers and morphology structures that can be synthesized using each process. Controlled radical polymerization will be explored for their ability to provide structural control of polymer chains.

A section of the course is dedicated to polymeric nanoparticles characterization. Of critical importance is the measurement of particle size, bulk and surface chemical composition. Importantly, the internal structure of the particles can be measured by combinations of microscopy and thermal analysis. All techniques will be presented for their utility toward polymeric nanoparticles characterization.

NIST experiments with varying concentrations of nanoparticle additives indicate a major opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of large industrial, commercial, and institutional cooling systems known as chillers.
NIST researcher Mark Kedzierski has found that dispersing ÂsufficientÂ amounts of copper oxide particles (30 nanometers in diameter) in a common polyester lubricant and combining it with a refrigerant improves heat transfer 50-275%.
