A small selection of additional overview or introductory nanotechnology material has been collected to provide an introduction to topics and issues relevant to nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is defined as fabrication of devices with atomic or molecular scale precision. Devices with minimum feature sizes less than 100 nanometers (nm) are considered to be products of nanotechnology. See NanoWord

Nanotechnology is a science that promises breakthroughs in all kinds of areas. We are already seeing it in stain resistant clothes, stronger materials and even in makeup. DTSC is working to make sure that Nanotechnology is safe for our health and the environment, that industry and government build strong partnerships, that the consumers get product information and that the benefits of Green chemistry will be incorporated.
