Task 6.1 Uses of New Materials
P6 Define nanochemicals and describe a use of nanochemicals, smart and specialised materials.

What is nanochemical?

Nanochemicals are chemicals that have been generated by the use of nanomaterials. Nanochemicals are used in different applications, including miltirary weapons, bicyle manufacturing and chemical warfare.Nanochemistry or Nanotechnology are related with the production of nanochemicals, its is a branch of nanoschience and involves the study of nanoscale size materials. It works with materials at a atomic level.

What is a smart material?

Smart materials are a reactive material, they have been specially designed to perform a task or a function specifically. It is a material with a property that can be changed and controlled by external stimuli. The external stimuli causes the change in the smart material properties. A change such as compressing, bening, changing the light intersity or temperature change.

What is a specialised material?

Specialised materials is a substances that is specifically designed for specific usage. For example, in electronic industry it relies on specialised materials to make the components it is using in mobile phones. The key material (specialised material) is Silicon, as it is a semiconductor.

Here are some examples of nanochemcals, smart materials and specialised materials.
Smart materials
Specialised materials
Nano wires
Thermochromic materials
Pizoelectric materials
Photochromatic materials
Thermochromic materials
Piezoelectric materials
Titanium dioxide

Task 6.2 Benefits of New Materials

M6 Explain the benefits of using nanochemicals, smart and specialised materials.
The Pizoelectric effect in Pizoelectric materials have a ability to generate an electric charge. It genergates an alternating current voltage when it is subjected to a mechanical stress. One material of Pizoelectric material is quartz (mineral in earth continental
