This talk highlights the most significant achievements and challenges related to our recent studies of nanomaterials. Among studied species are fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, metal and metal oxide clusters. Possible applications for hydrogen storage, DNA protection and damage, and nerve agent detections and decomposition are discussed. Also novel developments of Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships (QSAR) approach in prediction properties of nanospecies and in the risk assessment of nano-size materials will be reviewed.
