George Burdock] There are two ways to produce a nanosized product: (1) take the standard sized product particle and physically reduce it in size to produce a majority of the particles at nano size or; (2) manufacture the nanosized particle from the ground up, focusing not only on the end product (to be the same as the conventional product), but also keeping an eye on the size of the product particle.
