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
"Improvements in environmental
impact are achieved by utilizing nanostructure particulates in
coatings thus eliminates the requirement for toxic solvents."
