Activities for Teaching Nanochemistry

This chapter presents middle and high school teachers with the background information, procedures, and expected results of various chemistry-focused nanotechnology activities. A selection of experiments at varying degrees of difficulty are presented for nanoparticle synthesis, applications of nanomaterials, and characterization. Several activities use models to clearly demonstrate nanoscale phenomena, including self-assembly, surface to volume ratio, and probe microscopy. Models have the added benefit of providing a low-cost and safe method of introducing nanotechnology to the curriculum. Other interesting aspects of chemical nanotechnology can be presented using demonstrations to students.
