Short description: Nanotechnology is an emerging technology that is generally defined as the ability to create and use materials, devices, or systems with a size of approximately 1 to 100 nanometers (nm). Applications of nanotechnology in environmental protection draw on the unique properties of nanomaterials and include (1) sensors for improved monitoring and detection capabilities, and (2) treatment and remediation techniques for cost-effective and rapid site cleanup.
