    For details, refer to Defining Nanomaterial Entity Properties

    Composing ElementAdd information regarding the elements that compose the nanomaterial entity of the sample. For details, refer to Defining Nanomaterial Composing Elements.

    Click Add to expand the page to add one or more files whose data is relevant to the nanomaterial entity or the derivation of its data. For details, refer to Adding Composition Files.

    Copy to Other Samples with the Same Primary OrganizationSelect samples in the list to which you want this physico-chemical data transferred. This option copies files and data to one or more selected samples "owned" by the same point of contact. For details, refer to Copying a Composition to Samples in the Same Primary Organization.

    If you paste text into an input field, review it before submitting the text to the system. Make sure the formatting (such as superscript, subscript, bold, and Italics), Greek letters, and other special characters appear as expected. For details, refer to Correcting Special Text
