Inorganic Nanomaterials: Synthesis and Properties

This chapter describes the properties of inorganic nanomaterials and the most common methods used to prepare them. The peculiar characteristics of materials when their dimensions are reduced to the nanoscale are briefly introduced. Top‐down and bottom‐up preparation methods are critically reviewed, with a special focus on those strategies that are most frequently used in the preparation of nanostructures for the conservation of cultural heritage.
