Surname 2 find new ways of executing chemical reactions ( Klabunde and Richards 45). Professor Geoffrey Ozin of the University of Toronto is credited as the pioneering figure in the domain of nanochemistry. His groundbreaking research on the concepts of nanochemistry, proposes the application of chemistry principles in the bottom-up fusion of materials "over different length scales" via "building block hierarchical construction principles" ( Cademartiri and Ozin 12; Ozin and Arsenault 53). The field entails the use of nano-scale or molecular building blocks "programmed" with chemical data to self-assemble naturally self-assemble, in controlled environments. Regarded as a new thinking in the scientific domain, nanochemistry utilizes the material's chemistry and procedures from synthetic chemistry to construct nanomaterials with distinct properties, shapes and sizes. Nanochemistry as outlined in a study carried out by Chen et al. is a novel way of designing devices atom by atom, with molecular scale accuracy (5163). It involves studying, synthesizing, and characterizing materials on nanoscale, focusing on the behavior and reaction of atoms, as well as the control and manipulation of chemical reactions at atomic levels. In particular, Chhikara and Varma mentions that nanochemistry focuses on comprehending new behaviors that emerge on the nanoscale (2). Given that every atom in a

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
