Indeed example, K. Eric Drexler wrote a book (in ) entitled “Engines of Creation.

The morphology of NPs and nanocomposites The morphological characteristics to be taken into account are the flatness, aspect ratio and spatial position of each element in the case of hybrid NPs HNPs. A general classification exists between high and low aspect ratio particles. High aspect ratio NPs include nanotubes and nanowires. Small aspect ratio morphologies include spherical, oval, cubic, prism, helical and pillar shapes.
The details of the preparation methods for these NPs are presented in chapter 2.
The TEM images in figures 1. These NPs were designed and synthesized using the hydrothermal process for purification of histidine-tagged proteins [ 21 ]. TEM images of examples of NPs with different morphologies and compositions.

Download figure: Standard image High-resolution image Export PowerPoint slide With regard to nanocomposites, substantial progress has been made in recent years in developing technologies in the fields of magnetic microspheres, magnetic nanospheres and ferrofluids.
Nanospheres and microspheres containing a magnetic core embedded in a non-magnetic matrix are used in numerous biological applications [ 7 ]. They are used, for example, as carriers that can be targeted to a particular site by using an external magnetic field.
In addition, the magnetic separation of organic compounds, proteins, nucleic acids and other biomolecules and cells from complex reaction mixtures is becoming the most suitable method for large scale production in bioindustrial purification and extraction processes. For in vivo applications, it is imperative that well-defined biocompatible coatings surround the magnetic particles to prevent any aggregation and also to enable efficient protection of the body from toxicity.
However, for in vitro applications, biocompatible coatings are not essential; particles can be coated with non-toxic materials inert to chemical and biological media. The particles employed in all these applications are mainly superparamagnetic colloids with appropriate coatings, guaranteeing the stability and biocompatibility of the solutions.
Superparamagnetic NPs exhibit magnetizations of magnitudes similar to those of ferromagnetic materials, however, they have neither coercivity nor remanence.
INTRODUCTION TO NANOMATERIALS AND NANOTECHNOLOGY
This behaviour, which is of quantum origin, is limited to nanocrystals with sizes below the critical size [ 24 ]. Conversely, most applications require superparamagnetic colloidal dispersions with large magnetic responses. Because the magnetization of a particle is proportional to its volume, the maximum magnetization that one can achieve is limited by the critical size of the superparamagnetic transition, which depends on the material [ 7 ].
A well-established strategy to create superparamagnetic particles with larger superparamagnetic responses is using nanocomposites see, for example, figures 1. These superparamagnetic composites are typically made by embedding superparamagnetic nanocrystals in a non-magnetic matrix such as polystyrene or nanoporous silica [ 25 — 27 ].
The resulting colloidal particles retain the superparamagnetic response of their constituent nanocrystals and show larger magnetization when an external magnetic field is applied.
Furthermore, neither coercivity nor remanence are observed at the working temperature. These are carbon rich grains expelled by old stars such as R Corona Borealis. The result of this collaboration was the discovery of C60 and the fullerenes as the third allotropic form of carbon. Subsequent discoveries included the endohedral fullerenes , and the larger family of fullerenes the following year.
Nanotube research accelerated greatly following the independent discoveries   by Bethune at IBM  and Iijima at NEC of single-walled carbon nanotubes and methods to specifically produce them by adding transition-metal catalysts to the carbon in an arc discharge.
In the early s Huffman and Kraetschmer, of the University of Arizona , discovered how to synthesize and purify large quantities of fullerenes.
This opened the door to their characterization and functionalization by hundreds of investigators in government and industrial laboratories.
At a meeting of the Materials Research Society in , Dr. Ebbesen NEC described to a spellbound audience his discovery and characterization of carbon nanotubes.
Textbook of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
This event sent those in attendance and others downwind of his presentation into their laboratories to reproduce and push those discoveries forward.
Using the same or similar tools as those used by Huffman and Kratschmer, hundreds of researchers further developed the field of nanotube-based nanotechnology. Government support[ edit ] National Nanotechnology Initiative[ edit ] Mihail Roco of the National Science Foundation formally proposed the National Nanotechnology Initiative to the White House , and was a key architect in its initial development.
The initiative was spearheaded by Mihail Roco , who formally proposed the National Nanotechnology Initiative to the Office of Science and Technology Policy during the Clinton administration in , and was a key architect in its development. In a 21 January speech  at the California Institute of Technology , Clinton said, "Some of our research goals may take twenty or more years to achieve, but that is precisely why there is an important role for the federal government.
Caltech is no stranger to the idea of nanotechnology the ability to manipulate matter at the atomic and molecular level. Over 40 years ago, Caltech's own Richard Feynman asked, "What would happen if we could arrange the atoms one by one the way we want them?
Bush further increased funding for nanotechnology. In the article, he argues that "Our most powerful 21st-century technologies — robotics , genetic engineering , and nanotech — are threatening to make humans an endangered species. In particular, he focuses on genetics , nanotechnology and robotics.
He argues that 20th-century technologies of destruction, such as the nuclear bomb , were limited to large governments, due to the complexity and cost of such devices, as well as the difficulty in acquiring the required materials. He also voices concern about increasing computer power. His worry is that computers will eventually become more intelligent than we are, leading to such dystopian scenarios as robot rebellion.
He notably quotes the Unabomber on this topic. After the publication of the article, Bill Joy suggested assessing technologies to gauge their implicit dangers, as well as having scientists refuse to work on technologies that have the potential to cause harm. Main article: Prey novel Prey is a novel by Michael Crichton which features an artificial swarm of nanorobots which develop intelligence and threaten their human inventors. The novel generated concern within the nanotechnology community that the novel could negatively affect public perception of nanotechnology by creating fear of a similar scenario in real life.
In he introduced scientific objections to them  attacking the notion of universal assemblers in a Scientific American article, leading to a rebuttal later that year from Drexler and colleagues,  and eventually to an exchange of open letters in Smalley believed that such assemblers were not physically possible and introduced scientific objections to them.
Smalley first argued that "fat fingers" made MNT impossible. He later argued that nanomachines would have to resemble chemical enzymes more than Drexler's assemblers and could only work in water.
He believed these would exclude the possibility of "molecular assemblers" that worked by precision picking and placing of individual atoms. Also, Smalley argued that nearly all of modern chemistry involves reactions that take place in a solvent usually water , because the small molecules of a solvent contribute many things, such as lowering binding energies for transition states. Since nearly all known chemistry requires a solvent, Smalley felt that Drexler's proposal to use a high vacuum environment was not feasible.
Smalley also believed that Drexler's speculations about apocalyptic dangers of self-replicating machines that have been equated with "molecular assemblers" would threaten the public support for development of nanotechnology. Drexler and colleagues noted that Drexler never proposed universal assemblers able to make absolutely anything, but instead proposed more limited assemblers able to make a very wide variety of things.
They challenged the relevance of Smalley's arguments to the more specific proposals advanced in Nanosystems.
Drexler maintained that both were straw man arguments, and in the case of enzymes, Prof.Additionally, scientists need to know about the exposures and the potential exposure routes i.
These developments led to the discovery of fullerenes in and the structural assignment of carbon nanotubes a few years later Invention of scanning probe microscopy[ edit ] Gerd Binnig left and Heinrich Rohrer right won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their invention of the scanning tunneling microscope.
A general classification exists between high and low aspect ratio particles. However, to be in a position to assess risk, additional information is needed regarding toxicity of the materials, how they interact biologically in the body, and what the health effects are resulting from toxicity.
After giving a historical introduction to the subject, a review of the various experimental tools to understand nanoscale materials is presented.
