So when you hear about nanomaterials, a lot of things come together in the group. There are natural nanomaterials, which a billion-year history has given us and from which we try to learn as many things as possible. There are also “involuntary” nanomaterials, ie those that are accidentally produced as by-products of industrial processes, for example in mines and metalworking, or in the combustion engines that power our vehicles. …

In this phase the interpreter behaves like a rigorous English teacher who rejects any sentence that does not conform to the syntax, that is, to the grammatical rules of the language itself. As soon as the interpreter detects an error, it…
