C2: Nanoparticles

Here is a set of revision cards for students taking AQA Additional Science. These cards are on nanoparticles from the C2 (Chemistry) section. They are specific to what the specification requires you to know. Hope these help you to revise! Please rate and comment on how to improve them :) Also, I have a study group called AQA Additional Science where we discuss this topic and more. Feel free to become a member, the more the merrier!

Nanoparticles are 1-100nm in size

They have unique properties

they can combine to form nanostructures

They can lead to the development of new computers, new catalysts, new coatings, highly selective sensors and stronger and lighter construction materials
