Intended audience

This document is aimed at everyone working in the NanoSafety Cluster.

The JRC representative industrial nanomaterials are a series of nanomaterials used in the European nanosafety community for research [[Totaro2016]]. eNanoMapper is developing an ontology to be used as common language by this community. This document links the JRC materials to specific terms in the ontology and provides identifiers for each of them. The sources can be found at


The eNanoMapper ontology is developed to be used as common language for the nanosafety community [[Hastings2015]]. The ontology contains terms for, for example, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, but the encourage the data and knowledge exchange for the JRC representative industrial nanomaterials, we have added them to the ontology specifically.

The below table does not show where in the hierarchy the terms are found This can be looked up by clicking the eNanoMapper IRI link. The links provided for the ontology IRIs point to BioPortal [[Noy2009]], which will show the superclasses, which are more general concepts.

The table below also provides corresponding Compact Identifiers, based on a new US-EU standard [[Wimalaratne2018]]. These identifiers can be used in written materials (deliverables, research papers, etc) to identify the JRC nanomaterial.

The mappings

The below table gives the ontology IRIs for each of the JRC representative nanomaterials. Important to note is that these mappings do not NM-xxx synonymes; these are explicitly different in the ontology.
