  MIT Chemistry: Nanoscience
Nanoscience refers to the science and manipulation of chemical and biological structures with dimensions in the range from 1-100 nanometers.
Nanoscience is about creating new chemical and biological nanostructures, uncovering and understanding their novel properties, and ultimately about learning how to organize these new nanostructures into larger and more complex functional structures and devices.
Nanoscience is a new way of thinking about building up complex materials and devices by exquisite control of the functionality of matter and its assembly at the nanometer-length scale.

 What is Nanoscience?
Nanoscience is the study of phenomena on the scale of ~ 1-100 nm.
Nanotechnology is the ability to create and control objects on this same scale with the goal of preparing novel materials that have specific properties and, thus, functions.
It is thus clear and justified that nanoscience, as a prerequisite to nanotechnology, should receive long-term fundamental support.
