Nanoscientists boldly go to the frontiers of the smallest solids in basic science and their technical application. In their Review on page 1362 ff., H. Goesmann and C. Feldmann point to the visionary potential of nanoparticulate functional materials. After a general introduction of the topic, the optical, electrical, magnetic, and catalytic properties of nanoparticles as well as their potential for upgrading materials are summarized. Moreover, fundamentally novel shapes and compositions of matter are presented.
