Many properties of nanomaterials are used to good advantage in automobiles. Applications include durable coatings, fuel-saving tires, and reinforced plastics that facilitate the manufacture of lighter, more fuel-efficient cars. The miniaturization of electronic appliances and enhancement of their performance require highly integrated chips. The production process includes polishing the wafers with dispersions containing silica or aluminum oxide as polishing agents.
