Abstract

Nanoscience seems to be a main topic of this century. The chemical fundamentals are very old and named colloids since Graham in 1861. The acronym nano has been introduced in 1960 at a conference of measures and weights in Paris. In 1982 Binnig and Rohrer invented the scanning tunnel microscope(STM) and four years later Binnig the atomic force microscope(AFM). These microscopes are the main tools for the nanotechnology and from this times the number of publications exploded. In this article we’ll focus on the chemical aspects of nanotechnology and how to implement experiments into school.
