Give credit where credit is due. ~ Loretta Young.

Creating “100 Nano-Stories: Bookmarked!” was no easy task. That’s a given. I had to go through countless articles, videos, books, and courses to find the most reliable and information-dense material to learn about nanotechnology. But the most important thing was sharing the information with everyone who is reading this.

I believe in the research that I read to explain everything about the fundamentals of aerogel, graphene, nanotechnology, and organic nanomaterials to all of you.

Thank you to the people who created the resources to build my knowledge and create “100 Nano-Stories: Bookmarked!” Having that said, I will share your work in this article as an explicit way of gratitude and acknowledgment. You deserve it. 🙏🏽
