Harnessing the possibilities of the nanoworld
Scientists have long suspected that the way materials behave on the nanoscale - that is when particles have dimensions of about 1'100 nanometres - is different from how they behave on any other scale. A new paper in the†journal Chemical Science provides concrete proof that this is the case.† It is exciting that these simple experiments, when carried out with great care, can unexpectedly open a new door to understanding the fundamental question of how surface effects can control the stability of nanocrystals.
