Nanomaterials, carbon based and inorganic nanomaterials, are being employed in consumer and industrial products. Many end product applications include polymer composites, drug delivery systems, coatings and films, military applications, electronics, cosmetics, healthcare, and others. The most important characteristic of a nanoparticle is the large surface area to weight ratio that enables “designer” functionality to be added to nano-surfaces. Depending on the nano-application, complex functionalities are being added to the surfaces of the nanomaterial for nanocomposites to drug delivery systems, to cosmetics, and even clothing. It is during this process of coating that characterization is important. Characterization is essential for reproducible manufacturing processes. Not surprising, environmental scientists are also interested in nano-coating characterization as these functionalized nanomaterials enter our environment. This paper discusses the characterization of nanomaterial coatings by TGA-GC-MS.
