Nanotechnology: The changing shape of nanoparticles
Story  - Nanoparticle structure is no fait accompli. The precise configuration of the component atoms can be altered after the nanoparticles have been made, simply by changing their environment, research in this week's Nature suggests. In the future, nanoparticles could be modified post-synthesis to endow them with new properties.
