Several properties of nanomaterials are related to their crystallinity, size and composition. Many of these structural parameters can be pre-determined through chemical choices operated during their synthesis. Moreover, the surface features of nanoparticles govern their interaction with the environment, setting the bases for their implementation into functional composites and biological systems. I will discuss some of the chemical parameters which enable control over optical properties of nanoparticles, as well as on their further processing toward optical materials at the macroscale.
