About the course

This comprehensive course covers both the fundamental  and applied aspects of the nanomaterials and presents for the first time a new theory to describe the properties of nano materials. Nanoparticles and nanomaterials, in spite of their very small dimensions, unlike atoms and small molecules, are substances that have collective properties (heat capacity, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, hardness, etc.). The study of these properties of matter, regardless of the aggregate state, initially relied on thermodynamics, which considered matter as a continuous substance and, despite some achievements, could not explain the emerging new phenomenon.Through this workshop participants will acquire a sound knowledge properties and observed phenomenon in nanomaterials. The course will cover Molecular-Kinetic Theory (MKT) and discuses  its shortcoming in application for nano materials  and present a New Theory: Potential Theory of substances  (EPTS) and application for nano materials.
