Nanotechnology: Nanomaterials And The Purple Mattress

The world of science and technology is one that is continuously changing and evolving. Currently, one of the hottest buzzwords in scientific and technological is nano-manufacturing. This is a process through which nanoscale materials are made. Nanoscale, in this case, refers to a length of between 1 and 100 nanometers.

Nanomaterials are usually produced to magnify the unique characteristic of the material in question. Nanomaterials may end up having unique electrical, catalytic, mechanical, thermal or even imaging capabilities. The versatile nature of nanotechnology and nanomaterials make them quite useful in a wide range of industries from the military to medicine and even down to the industrial sectors.… Read More

A 7 Point Introduction to Nanomaterials Used In The World Today

The terms nanotechnology and nanomaterials are popping up more often in the news, in research papers and even on the web. Despite that, there is still a relative lack of awareness regarding nanomaterials.

1. Definition of Nanomaterials

Before understanding the concept of nanomaterials, there is need to understand what the general concept of nanotechnology is all about.

The term ‘nanotechnology’ emerged in 1974. At the time, it was defined as consisting of the processing of separation, consolidation, and deformation of materials by one atom or by one molecule.
