HideShow resource information
What is a nano-particle?
A nano-particle is a particle that is a really tiny, it's a 'nano scale particle'.

What do nano-particles contain? What are they? Shape & arrangement?
Nano-particles contain fullerenes, which are tiny carbon molecules. They're shaped like hollow balls or closed tubes, and they have an arrangement in hexagonal rings.

What is nano-science?
Nano-science is the use of nano-particles in science.

What are some of the uses of nano-particles in nano-science?
Large surface area to volume ratio, means they could help make new industrial catalysts. You can use nano-particles to make sensors, such as water purity. Nano-tubes can be used to make stronger, lighter building materials
