Nanochemistry: Who Owns It ?

So who owns nanochemistry? Should “all” the credit be given to chemistry pioneers of the past 20-30 years or were the foundations of nanochemistry already laid in the field of colloid chemistry, the origin of which can be traced to a century earlier?

Nano Silicon Samurai?

Welcome to one of our guest columns, where active researchers can share their views on topics relevant to materials science. Professor Geoffrey Ozin from the University of Toronto tells us what he thinks about nanoscale silicon and its future. One thing that has...

Life Before Advanced Materials?

Materials science is now well-established as an interdisciplinary field, but how was it in the early days? Professor Geoffrey Ozin recalls the challenges he faced when scientific research was still very traditionally classified–chemistry, physics, biology, engineering…
