Nanocrystals have long been known for their ability to color glasses and catalytic action. New understanding of nanoscale phenomena, especially the changes in the material properties with size are promising to usher in a whole new genre of applications.1-31, 2, 3 In this entry, a discussion of the electronic, optical, and magnetic properties of capped nanocrystals, followed by a brief elucidation of select applications is provided
