Size matters: Chemistry has contributed strongly to the rapid development of nanoscience resulting in an ever-growing amount of nanosized systems and materials. The properties of these systems do not only arise from their size, but also surface modifications and structures. Nanomaterials thus have unique properties and can contribute to the development of chemistry, including nanocatalysts and nanomedicine.
