  • Nanoparticles
    • 1 - 100 nM in size
    • Combine to form nanostructures
    • Liposomes (naturally occurring) have always existed
    • Nanoparticle Properties:
      • - Electrons can move through an insulating layer
      • - Nanoparticles are more sensitive to light and heat
      • - Nanoparticles have a high surface area compared to their volume
    • Nanocomposites are added to plastics to make them stronger
      • Car industry
      • Pharmaceuticals
      • Lycra
      • Kevlar - body armour
