Search for nanomaterials


NanoData is a knowledge base with information on the development of nanomaterials and nanotechnology, focusing mainly on the EU market. You can find out about key sectors using nanomaterials, including health, energy, photonics, manufacturing, and information and communication technology. You can also find out about products that use nanomaterials and nanotechnology, patents, and research projects funded by the EU.

You can filter information by sector, product or organisation and by research and development activity. NanoData also gives you access to the latest news in nanomaterials and nanotechnology.


The eNanoMapper provides a computational infrastructure for the management of toxicological data for nanomaterials. It is one of the largest data sources currently available on the toxicological properties of nanomaterials.

The data is collected from several sources, including the EU-funded NanoREG project. The database will continue to expand as results from more research projects is added.

The eNanoMapper is funded by the EU under its research and innovation programme.

ECHA's registered substances database

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) publishes information on chemical substances registered under REACH. This information covers the intrinsic properties of each substance and their impact on our health and the environment. The data comes directly from companies who make or import the substances. The database also includes substances in nano-form.

Catalogue of nanomaterials used in cosmetics

The European Commission maintains a catalogue of all nanomaterials used in cosmetics placed on the EU market, based on information notified by industry. The EUON has matched these substances with those registered under the REACH Regulation. Browse the catalogue and access all the publicly available information collected from REACH registration dossiers including information on the toxicological and ecotoxicological properties of the substances.

List of nano-pigments on the EU market

The list consists of 81 substances from the European Chemicals Agency's chemicals database, the Belgian and French national inventories, the Danish Product Register and the EU catalogue of nanomaterials in cosmetic products.
