00:02:46 Can I say anything new?
00:03:46 Abstract
00:04:22 The Laws of Physics or The Crunch You call me a crunchie and I’ll take you outside And I’ll show you just how the crunch is applied David Kramer
00:05:20 The 3 S’s

'Nano' is all about small. A dispersed system is smaller than its agglomerated or aggregated precursor. Dr Alan Rawle rambles through the fundamental physical principles outlining dispersion, solid bridging and the importance of the surface
