The National Nanotechnology Initiative is a focal point for advances in emerging nanosciences.
Nanotechnology is interdisciplinary and multinational in scope. What is Nanotechnology?
It is, as Dr. Roald Hoffman, Cornell University Nobel Laureate in Chemistry states "Nanotechnology is the way of ingeniously controlling the building of small and large structures, with intricate properties: it is the way of the future, a way of precise controlled building, with incidentally, environmental benignness built in by design."
Nanoparticles are the molecular building blocks that enable the creation of new materials with new sets of properties.
"Improvements in environmental impact are achieved by utilizing nanostructure particulates in coatings thus eliminates the requirement for toxic solvents." WTEC Hyper-Librarian
