Whether you're a researcher or not, there is no doubt the word "nano" has entered your vocabulary more times in the past year than ever before. Used in everything from sunscreens to golf drivers, nanotechnology has exploded on both scientific and consumer radars.
Nanoparticles, molecules in the 10-9 m diameter range, emerged in the scientific world as the tool promising to be able to change technology as we know it. Due to the small size and large surface area, nanoparticles exhibit unique physical and chemical properties that have generated great interest from researchers specializing in a wide range of disciplines.
Development of products containing these molecules has grown exponentially in the last few years. Nanoparticles now appear in many of the everyday items we see on shelves, including sensitive products like food, lotions, and childrens' toys.
