Abstract : Development of synthesis protocols for realising nanomaterials over a range of sizes, shapes, and chemical compositions is an important aspect of nanotechnology. The remarkable sizedependent physico-chemical properties of nanoparticles have fascinated and inspired research activity in this direction. This paper describes some aspects on synthesis and characterisation of nanoparticles of metals, metal alloys, and oxides, either in the form of thin films or bulk shapes. A brief discussion on processing of two-phase nanocomposite magnets is also presented.
