Nanomaterials are an emerging technology increasingly portrayed in science fiction. But what are these mysterious materials in reality about? How are they made? And what are they used for? To answer these questions and more we invited co-editors Prof. Xuan Grace Wang, Prof. Sajid Bashir, and Prof. Jingbo Louise Liu to chat about their new book, “Nanochemistry: From Theory to Application for In-Depth Understanding of Nanomaterials”, with De Gruyter Acquisitions Editor Dr. Christene Smith.
