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.
