At a famous Christmas lecture in 1959, the theoretical physicist Prof Richard Feynman talked for the first time about nanotechnology and its potential applications. Exactly 60 years have passed since that Christmas lecture, and we are currently living in a nanotechnology era. The beginning of the third millennium has seen a dramatic increase in the use of nanoscopic phenomena and nanomaterials in our daily lives; and the discovery of graphene in 2004 (for which Professor Andre Geim and Professor Konstantin Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Prize in 2010) have opened new venues in nanoelectronics, nanomedicine, nanobiotechnology, etc. Nanoparticles are routinely used in human diagnostic and therapeutic methods and they have also been recently used in animal production and veterinary medicine.
