This issue of Nanotech TOE covers nanotechnology related innovations for 3D printing, aviation industry, healthcare, batteries, agriculture, construction, and data storage applications. Innovations profiled include nanofibers for waste water recovery applications, hydrophobic nanocoating for increased safety in the aviation industry, a nanosensor that enables detection of inflammation, silicon-based nanostructures that prevent inflammation in implants, and nano-fiber based bio-fertilizers for improved efficiency in organic farming. Nanoparticles for ophthalmology applications, a novel zinc oxide-based anti-microbial coating are also profiled. In addition a novel, nanotechnology-based approach for improved data storage and a production method for more sustainable concrete alternative are described. The Nanotech TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on nanotechnology-related innovations and their impact across various industries. Technology focus areas include nanomaterials, nanocoatings, nanohealthcare, nanomedicine, and nanomanufacturing. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Nanocomposites, lithium-metal batteries, data storage, anti-microbial coatings, nanomaterials, bio-fertilizers, organic farming, nanocrystals, light-emitting nanocrystals
