Abstract

Nanoscale materials formed by logical or random ensembles of molecules have been an integral part of many cultures for centuries, although arguably for thousands of years. Early notable works with nanomaterials date back all the way to the 9th century, as artisans and pot-makers would apply metallic films on the surface of ceramics, rendering a metallic glitter to their works.
