Abstract: Nanotechnology is a relatively new interdisciplinary field to which much attention has been paid for the last years. It involves researchers from very different areas: Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science or Medicine. In the interface of all these disciplines lay the possibility to tackle new challenges, unthinkable a few years ago [Klabunde2001]. Nanoscience has opened many possibilities in most technology areas, unreachable so far. It is devoted to the studies of phenomena at the nanoscale, that is, the limit “where the smallest man-made devices meet the atoms and molecules of the natural world” [Wong1999]. Nanoscience is based on the fabrication and characterization of nanostructured, or nanophase systems. These can be three- dimensional: nanoparticles or nanospheres, two-dimensional: thin films, or one- dimensional: quantum dots. The nanoscale regime is a very special point in the length scale, at which the classical laws of physics are not suitable for the explanation of many phenomena, so quantum approaches are needed. Significant changes in the chemical and physical properties of materials take place at the limit at which the interactions correlation length (electrical, magnetic, crystalline...) is of the same order of magnitude of the system size. That opens new possibilities for the development of smart new functional materials, like improved catalysts, polymers, ceramics, tissues, solid state medicines or drug carriers...
