Nanorods, or quantum rods, are short nanowires that seem rigid and straight and are one-dimensional structures that provide a directed path for electrical transport. They are shaped like long sticks or dowels with a diameter in the nanoscale but a length that is much longer and aspect ratios between 2 and 50. Their mechanical, electrical, and optical properties depend upon their size, allowing for multiple applications. Also, nanorods may be functionalized for different applications.
Typical Applications

The applications of nanorods are diverse, ranging from display technologies to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optical, sensing, solar cells, magnetic, and electronic device applications.

Nanorod TSCA (SARA Title III) Status: Varies. For further information, please call the E.P.A, Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) at 202-564-2902 Or contact the CDC at +1–800–232–4636 or by email at: Nanorod Safety Notice: Before using nanorods, the user shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use, and user assumes all risk and liability whatsoever in connection in addition to that. Please visit and read this excellent “Approaches To Safe Nanotechnology” document from the CDC & NIOSH. This publication was designed to: raise awareness of the occupational safety and health issues involved with nanotechnology; make recommendations on occupational safety and health best practices in the production and use of nanomaterials; facilitate dialogue between NIOSH and its external partners in industry, labor, and academia; respond to requests for authoritative safety and health guidelines; and, identify information gaps and areas for future study and research
