Guillermo Muñoz-Matutano recovers Nano – Mètode's issue dedicated to nanotechnology – and reviews the main changes ocurred in the nanoworld these years, along with its future challenges.
Tininess Makes a Huge Impact: Semiconducting and Metallic Nanoparticles. Defying the conventions of linguistic repetition, the prefix nano springs up in all languages with unusual force. Nanostructure, nanofiber, nanocrystals, nanowires, nanotubes, nanodevice
Miniature Universe: Challenges Facing Molecular Nanoscience. The molecular field of Nanoscience is an area as yet little explored in Nanoscience. This may be because, compared to simpler atom-based nano-objects, the larger structural and electronic complexity of molecules makes them more difficult to study at nanoscale with
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Nanoscience has progressed over the last 50 years from a scattered set of basic but outstanding breakthroughs to hundreds of research groups world-wide, continuously announcing the discovery of novel nanomaterials and fascinating nanodevices. Nanotechnology is becoming real; in fact, many of these advances have become
[caption id="attachment_368" align="alignleft" width="350"] The lotus effect. The self-cleaning properties of leaves of diffe-rent plant species are based on their superhydrophobic character. Water is repelled by the leaf surface, and this repulsion is due to the combination of a microstructured surface formed by leaf cells,
