2 Nanotechnology in Brazil Based on data from the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology (2010), in Brazil there are around 150 companies developing any products or services from knowledge in nanotechnology. They include companies specializing in the production of nanomaterials such as nanoparticles; companies focusing on manufacturing of intermediate products, including coatings and fabrics ; and companies that seek to end consumer products and are dedicated to the fields of cosmetics and clothing, among other segments. The main areas of application of nanotechnology in Brazil are the pharmaceutical and cosmetic ones.
