Corn growers could help harvest nanotube fibers from ethanol

Abstract:
Technology gurus, and even politicians such as Newt Gingrich, are pointing to nanotechnology as a force that will change our world. But to become reality, this science of the small will require an affordable, ready source of its primary raw material, carbon. Petroleum is the obvious choice, but as its price goes up, corn-based ethanol could turn out to be the preferred source of raw materials for our nano future.
