Nanoscience and Nanotechnology


Under certain circumstances nanoparticles without any solvent present remain as liquids. Such nanofluids are interesting as model systems for studying common fluids with the advantage that the 'molecular' granularity is now on a scale which is more than an order of magnitude larger than common liquids.

Nanobubbles are simply nanosized bubbles. What makes them interesting? Theory tells us they should dissolve in less than a second but they are stable for days. Additionally, they have lots of interesting properties being implicated in medical treatments and cleaning technologies.
