• In the past nanotechnology sounded like science-fiction, nowadays it is fully incorporated in our daily lives. Even if we don’t always notice nano-particles – they are widely applied in chemical and downstream industries. Nanoparticles have unique physical and chemical properties due to their high surface area and nanoscale size (ranging from 1nm-100nm). The properties are dependent on the particle size and shape, allowing the possibility of tuning the material according to the required characteristics
