BU Nanocamp, July 2008

Synthesis and Characterization of Nanomaterials 

The Participants

First some theory. How big is Nano? Why do properties change on the nanoscale? How can we make and characterize nanoscale materials?

Then some introduction into standard laboratory techniques ...

All set to weigh in the chemicals.

Yes, chemistry really works.

Why are gold nanoparticles red and not "golden"? Because of plasmons !
