China's nanotech patent applications rank world's third

Patent application cases concerning nanotechnology have grown rapidly in China over recent years, following the United States and Japan to take the world's third place. According to the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MST), during the decade before 2001, China's total applications for nanotechnology patents numbered less than 1,000. The figure soared in the past two years and amounted to 12 percent of the world's total. China now has more than 2,400 such patents.
