A nanoparticle comprised of a polymer, lipid or other type of shell that enclosing its inner cavity or content. A nanocapsule is usually a hollow spherical particle made up of polymers or phospholipids (in this case it is called a liposome or a nanosome) containing a low-molecular substance inside

Hollow nanoparticle composed of a solid shell that surrounds a core-forming space available to entrap substances
Reference : IUPAC Recommendations
Nano-object with more than one chemically or structurally distinct wall layer enclosing a hollow or solid core, which is designed to carry analytical, therapeutic or image enhancing components

It is the average number of times the nanotechnology articles published within a year have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports.
The total number of times all records have been cited: This field displays the total number of citations to all of the nanotechnology-related articles in the set of search results.
This field displays the h-index count and is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited count. The h-index is the number of item which is in the h rank of the mentioned ranking and have at least "h" citations. For example, an h-index of 20 means there are 20 items that have 20 citations or more. This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited.

The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology granted patents in USPTO. According to ISO/TS 18110 (First Edition 2015-08-15), the definition of nanotechnology patents is “patents that include at least one claim related to nanotechnology or patents classified with an IPC classification code related to nanotechnology such as B82.
