Summary

In this introductory paper an attempt is made to give an overview of the area of nanostructured materials irrespective of the synthesis process. The various microstructural features such as clusters or isolated nanoparticles, agglomerated nanopowders, consolidated nanomaterials and nanocomposite materials as well as all materials classes are considered. As an important component of modern research on nanomaterials a section describes the various characterization tools available. Based on these remarks some properties of nanostructured materials will be summarized emphasizing the property-microstructure relationships. Finally, a brief outlook on applications and initial industrial use of nanomaterials is presented.
