Chemistry of nanostructured materials.

Nanochemistry is a scientific branch that examines the synthesis, analysis and structure of chemical compounds at the nanoscale.

Nanochemistry located in the border area between nanotechnology and chemistry. But other areas of work play a role: nanotoxicology, the physics of nanostructures, materials chemistry theoretical chemistry and physics, and others.

The following list gives an overview of information and information on the chemistry of nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials and Nanochemistry

Nanomaterials are a fast developing field of research and applications lie in many separate domains, such as in hi-tech (optics, electronics, biology, aeronautics), but also in consumer industries (automotive, concrete, surface treatments (including paints), cosmetics, etc.).
