A wide variety of fabrication processes for nanoparticles and related materials has been developed for the last several decades. Cost-effective and environmentally conscious production of nanomaterials is necessary to establish the nanopackaging technology. In addition, shape-controlled synthesis of nanomaterials such as nanorods and nanowires is also important for developing advanced electronic devices. In this chapter, fundamentals and applications of physical and chemical processes are reviewed to understand recent progress in the industrial production for metal nanoparticles and related materials. This chapter also describes utilization of the nanomaterials for preparing electric wires, electrodes, and interconnects.
