Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology
Nano-scale sized materials are called nanomaterials and to describe nanostructures it is necessary to distinguish between the numbers of dimensions in the volume of an object. The surfaces having one dimension on the nanoscale are called nanotextured surfaces. It is of extensive significance that the power of nanotechnology has assisted in understanding the complexity at ever smaller scales, which is helping humanity to understand the specific basis of some of the oldest and most intractable of technologies, such as those involved in food and medicine. Current research in nanotechnology includes bottom-up ad top-down approaches, functional, biomimetic, speculative and dimensionality of nanomaterials.
