Nanochemistry and Measurements

Nanochemistry is a new field of chemistry dealing with the syntheses, characterizations, and applications of nanoscale (from ~1 to ~100 nm) materials. In this size regime, many materials show unique physical and/or chemical properties that neither their bulk counterparts nor atoms/molecules have. Our discipline provides various research activities in, but not limited to, creating new chemical nanostructures, uncovering and understanding their novel properties, and learning how to organize these new nanostructures into larger and more complex functional structures and devices.
