Nanotechnology is an emerging field of applied science that engages almost every technical discipline – from chemistry to agriculture – in the study and application of extremely tiny materials with particle sizes ranging from ~1-100 nm. This course will cover the fundamentals of nanoscience and nanotechnology from historical development, concepts and principles to nanomaterial manufacturing and property characterization, and the application of nanotechnology in food science, agriculture and environment.
