Nanotechnology highlights from the ACS national meeting
From stain-free clothing to scratch-resistant eyeglasses to longer lasting sunscreen lotions, nanotechnology - the science and technology of the ultra small - is already making an impact on our lives. Now, it's poised to make an even broader impact with promises of faster computers, better diagnostic tests and improved ways to remove toxins from contaminated sites. More than 15 symposia will feature these and other topics related to this growing field of research - including its promises, challenges and potential risks.
