Nanotechnology is the study and control of matter at dimensions between approximately 1 and 100 nanometres. To put this into perspective, the width of a strand of human hair is 100,000 nanometres. At the nanoscale, materials may not behave as they normally do. Instead, they possess unusual physical, chemical, and biological properties, thereby allowing scientists to use these nanomaterials as the building blocks for novel applications. This relatively new technology is emerging as a critical field worldwide, with the potential to impact significant issues as diverse as health, water, energy and even information technology. 

At NanoScienceWorld, we regularly update our readers with the latest nanotechnological developments and discoveries taking place around the world. 

NanoScienceWorld is essentially a news site – you will find a mixture of the latest nanotechnology news coverage, features and blogs here. All in all, there is something here for science lovers from both ends of the spectrum – ranging from scientists to non-specialists.
