history, nanoparticles before nanotechnology – nanowiki #2

Nanoparticles existed before nanotechnology. Every time a volcano roars, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes are formed. This happens as well when forests, Or oil, burn. The thermodegradation of organic matter generates nanostructures And, indeed, biological processes involve nanoparticles, Such as magnetosomes, which function as bacterian compasses, Or ferritin, an iron reserve. Sometimes humans have taken advantage […]
