Nanochemistry and Nanocatalysis Science: Research advances and future perspective
Bhupender S. Chhikara, Rajender S. Varma
The development of nanomaterials has made its mark in nanocatalytic applications and ensuing plethora of nanotechnological advances. The size-dependent chemistry of nanomaterials and consequent controlled and designed synthesis of smart materials with desired end application has provided us a number of new products recently which are already making impact on quality of human life. The fundamental nano paradigm shift would influence future research advances in field of nanoscience chemistry, ranging from drug delivery to exquisite designs of novel catalysts that drive innovations in chemical synthesis and transformations. The nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field that will see increased role in the diverse and emerging newer areas like artificial intelligence; nanochemistry would help speed up the development of applications in the real world with artificial intelligence.
