Abstract

Atomic agregates with dimensions in the range of the nanometer scale possess unexpected physico-chemical properties. Those very special properties stem mainly from two facts: i) a large fraction of the total number of atoms lie at the surface and ii) the unfilled electronic bonding of these atoms makes them extremely reactive. In general it is expected that nanostructures should give the link between atomic, surface and bulk matter physico-chemistry. We discuss briefly only some properties that are subjects of research in our group; i.e., 1) chemical ordering in bimetallic nanostructures with compact shapes, 2) magnetic properties of transition metal clusters, and 3) electronic and structural properties of semiconductor nanostructures.
