Specifically concerning organic chemistry, but an explanation on its significance and applications in inorganic chemistry would be great as well.

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ The question title as written seems too broad. There are lots of examples of applications of nanotechnology throughout chemistry. There are so many that it would be hard to imagine that there is one definitive answer to this question. Now, for the more localized question of organic chemistry, I think we have a better chance. Perhaps if this question was specific to organic and you asked another question about inorganic chemistry. $\endgroup$ – Ben Norris Jun 5 '15 at 12:13

There is branch named Chemical Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Which deals with chemistry asspects.

Talking about organic chemistry, nanotechnology is used for Organic synthesis.

With help of Modern Chemistry today we can synthesis almost all complex molecules, thanks to nanotechnology.

Check out Wikipedia-1, Wikipedia-2 and nano.gov

For organic chemistry, Polymer nanotechnology is developed notably. Polymer matrix and nanocomposites have become a prominent area of current research and development

    $\begingroup$ This answer has been flagged as VLQ. While I do not agree with this flag, I and the OP probably too would appreciate and example for the use of nanotechnology in organic synthesis. $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Jun 5 '15 at 7:42
