Mathematical modeling at the Institute of New Materials has played a crucial role in supporting the manufacturing and design of new technologies of nanomaterials, whose applications range from transportation, electronics and optics engineering to environmental sciences.

In this paper, we focus our attention to two mathematical models together with their corresponding FEMLAB simulations: The first part of the paper is about computational modeling of fire-retardant nanocomposite gels and the second one deals with Magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo applications. We provide specific background and numerical results for each model to finally state conclusions to our modeling.
