This article provides information on nanotechnology. The discovery of fullrene was made for carbon nanotubes in 1985. Thin films of carbon nanotubes were developed using evaporation technique in 2006. Nanotechnology coverts sun light directly into power, cleans oceans and sea beaches from oil slicks and serves as fueling agents for thermites and munition. According to the author, nanotechnology aims to establish the most fundamental basis for the precise development of solid phase nanomaterials.
