This chapter explores trends in nanotechnology knowledge creation across scientific disciplines and technology domains, and helps to understand the dissemination of nanotechnology knowledge. In relation to intense global competition in nanotechnology, this study exhibits a forward-looking approach in characterizing nanotechnology research and development trajectories. This research adopts hybrid research methodology, including both quantitative and qualitative methods. The findings imply that nanotechnology knowledge creation and dissemination trends have appeared to bridge divergent disciplines, emphasizing the importance of collaborative research networks among scientists to co-create, share and disseminate nano-knowledge across groups, institutions and borders.
