New possible nanotechnology applications of some original developments and results of studying the regularities and micromechanisms (physics) of the hydrogen fluoride gas activator influence on oxidation of titanium, zirconium and zirconium-based alloys with niobium, and also - on nitriding, boriding and carbiding a series of refractory metals (Ti, Zr, Nb, Mo, W, Ta) are elaborated. The new possible nanotechnology applications of the techniques and physics of creating a compound-like nanosegregation or the liquid-like nanosegregation at grain boundaries in nanostructured metals, i.e. creating of specific cellular type natural nanocomposites, are considered as well.
