In a different light: In a provocative look at nanoscience, Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann considers the structural and electronic perplexities of dimensionality, the consequences of bond severance in nano-object formation, the implications of simple acid-base chemistry for stabilization of nanostructures, and what lessons might be learned from surface science on structural relaxation and reconstruction.
