NANOSCIENCE
1 Tiny particles - 1-100 nanometres across - are called 'nanoparticles'
2 Nanoparticles contain around a few hundred atoms
3 eg. fullerenes - molecules of carbon, shaped like hollow balls or closed tubes
3.1 The carbon atoms are arranged in hexagonal rings.
3.2 Different fullerenes contain different numbers of carbon atoms
4 1nm = 0.000 000 001m
5 Fullerenes can be joined together to form nanotubes - tiny hollow carbon tubes, a few nanometres across
5.1 All those covalent bonds make carbon nanotubes very strong. They can be used to reinforce graphite in tennis rackets
6 A nano particle has different properties from the 'bulk' chemical it's made from
