Chemists Pioneer New Antibiotics And Nano-Sized Delivery Vehicles

University of South Florida chemists who recently patented a new class of synthetic antibiotics for killing drug-resistant bacteria have also developed a better (and smaller) way of getting drugs to a target. Using nanotechnology - the big science of making small things - their antibiotics now can ride into bacteria cells on nano-sized, spherical vehicles one millionth the size of a pinhead.
