South Africa enters the nanotech race

Nanotechnology - the burgeoning science of super-small construction - has so far eluded Africa. But this looks set to change. An African Materials Forum, to be held next month at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa, could kickstart the continent straight into the nanotech race. Many believe that Southern Africa has great potential in the field, as a team of researchers at the University of Zululand (UniZul) in South Africa is already showing. The team is currently investigating applications for nanomaterials in water treatment and energy storage.
