Commercializing Nanotechnology - from Laboratory to Market


For the last ten years, basic research activities in nanoscience and engineering have increased exponentially and some of them have great potentials for commercial applications globally.

Currently, a very few nanotechnology based commercial products are available in the market. Millions of dollars are being invested in the basic research and engineering, but funding is almost nonexistent for taking these potentials to technology development, testing, and commercialization.

The universities and laboratories now engaged in nanotechnology basic research are normally not equipped to handle technology development and testing that are essential for commercialization.

The presentation will cover current culture of commercialization, methodologies and techniques. It will also present case studies.


Dr. Hebab.Quazi has been providing technology and management leadership for more than 35 years in the US and internationally. His experience covers Research & Development and Technology Testing & Commercialization.

Currently he is a Director at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ Nanoscience and Engineering Forum (2013 to 2018). He served as Session Chairs – “Nanomaterials Manufacturing” at the AIChE 2014 thru 2017 Annual Meetings ; and Session Co-Chairs– “Nanofabrication and Nanoscale Processing, at the AIChE 2016 & 2017 Annual Meetings. He also served as the /Program Manager / Technical Director for the US Department of Defense program on Nanotechnology.

This year, writing a book on "Commercializing Nanotechnology", scheduled for publication during 2019.
