uncertain NanoMaterial Registry

Abbreviation:Nano Registry

General Information
The Nanomaterial Registry is a central registry and growing repository of publicly-available nanomaterial data which are fully curated based upon a set of Minimal Information about Nanomaterials (MIAN). Each nanomaterial curated into the Registry provides the following information: Physico-characteristics – values, protocols, metadata; Information on the related biological and/or environmental studies; Instance of Characterization information – preparation, synthesis, and time frame leading up to the nanomaterial characterization; and Validation back to the Data Source, such as scholarly article, manufacturer’s website. As both the original homepage ( and data browser are not functional, we have marked this record as Uncertain. Please get in touch with us if you have any information on this resource.
