Schematic illustration of the NInChI as a notation to represent a particular group of NMsidentifier, with the size of the group getting smaller as additional sub-layers and NM components (core, shell(s), surroundings in the case of NMs providedes as dispersions). Note also that the NInChI incorporates existing InChIs for small molecules, PInChIs for polymeric coatings and MInChI for the wt% of particles in dispersion).
