The increasing drive towards miniaturisation has dictated that new micro- and nanomanufacturing technologies are developed in parallel with nanotechnology, molecular engineering and biotechnology in order to keep abreast of future technological developments. IJNM provides a principal forum for the interchange of information on the science, process technology and applications of micro- and nanomanufacturing processes.


 Topics covered include

  • Nanomanufacturing
  • Micromanufacturing
  • Materials in micromanufacturing and nanomanufacturing
  • Tools and processes for micromanufacturing and nanomanufacturing
  • Management of micromanufacturing and nanomanufacturing processes
  • Micromanufacturing and nanomanufacturing enterprises

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJNM are to establish effective channel of communication on the latest developments in micro- and nanomanufacturing science, processes, technology and applications between engineers, scientists, industry, policy makers, academic and research institutions, and persons concerned with any aspect of nanomanufacturing. The interdisciplinary nature of nanomanufacturing will serve to break down cultural, international and academic barriers to meet the needs of accelerating technological developments in the international community for a global change.


IJNM provides a vehicle to help academics, researchers, industrial companies, trade associations and policy-makers in the fields of manufacturing technology, materials science, engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology, electronics and business to disseminate information and learn from each other's work.


IJNM publishes original high quality papers, rapid communications, timely review papers, technical reports, case studies. Special Issues devoted to developments in important topics in micro- and nanomanufacturing will be published periodically.

  • Puffed up rice


    Researchers in China have developed a new method for "puffing" glutinous rice starch which produces a material with a water-absorbing nanotextured surface that might be exploited in oral pharmaceutical delivery and alternatively in the adhesives industry. Glutinous rice starch is a well-known natural biopolymer widely used in the food industry as a raw material for cakes, dumplings, rice glue balls, and other food products. Its chemical character might readily be exploited in a range of environmentally benign and biodegradable non-food products, thanks to this new work [...]
