The chemistry of functional nanomaterials

Author affiliations


Nanostructured materials are the core components of nanotechnology, providing basic building blocks for fabricating complex devices with desired functions. Thanks to their inherent quantum size and shape effects, nanomaterials have many important applications in electronics, optoelectronics, information processing, catalysis, biomedical science, environmental science, energy conversion and storage, advanced defense technologies, and many other fields. Chemistry plays a central role in the development of novel nanostructured materials. This themed issue on the chemistry of functional nanomaterials gives a broad overview of the synthesis, structural manipulation, characterization, surface modification, self-assembly, processing and integration of nanoscale materials into functional devices.
