1 Nanomaterials is the study of materials with structure whose size is in the scale of 1-100nm. Materials with this size characteristic can have unique chemical, electrical, optical, thermal and structural properties. A clasic example is the variance of the color of gold particles with respect to particle size. Nanomaterials can consist of particles, quantum dots, nanorods, nanotubes, as well as other composites and nanostructured materials.
3 This page is a starting point for nanoHUB users. It lists a few
4 resources developed or recommended by the NCN Nanomaterials team. You can find other resources by browsing through the list with the tag [[Tag(nanomaterials)]], or by
5 using the nanoHUB search box to locate other resources. Resources for specific materials are available: [[Tag(nanocomposites)]], [[Tag(nanoparticles)]], [[Tag(quantumdots)]], [[Tag(nanorods)]], [[Tag(nanotubes)]], [[Tag(nanostructure)]].
