Nanomaterials: What’s in a Name? | ASTM Standardization News
Over the last two decades, nanoscience has developed thousands of nanomaterials that promise to revolutionize many aspects of science and technology. From nanomedicines to quantum dots to nanomachines, the possibilities seem endless. Because of their tiny size (nanomaterials have one or more dimensions in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers), nanomaterials are complex, typically much larger than individual molecules, yet much less complicated than bulk materials such as metals, ceramics, and polymers.
