Introduction

The US National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) defines “nanoscience” as “research to discover new behaviors and properties of materials with dimensions at the nanoscale, which ranges roughly from 1 to 100 nanometers (nm).” A key objective of nanotechnology is to develop materials, devices and systems with fundamentally different properties by exploiting the unique properties of molecular and supramolecular systems at the nanoscale. Nearly every field of science has been affected by the tools and ideas of nanotechnology, and breakthroughs continue to be made in computing, medicine, sensing, energy production, and environmental protection.
