Reactions: Everyday Chemistry videos and infographics

Linked product
Description
The American Chemical Society produces Reactions Everyday Chemistry videos, stories, and infographics covering a wide variety of chemistry topics including many about nanoscale science. Example: How Can You See an Atom? video The World's Smallest Robots: Rise of the Nanomachines What is the Blackest Black? Since ancient Greek times, philosophers and scientists have tried to figure out what an atom looks like. For a couple thousand years, humans could only speculate on the structure and other properties of the smallest unit of matter. It wasn't until the 1980s that chemists could see individual atoms. Bestselling author Sam Kean takes us through the nearly 2,400-year quest to see the atom in a new episode of our "Legends of Chemistry" series.

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
