MIT Recognizes Groundbreaking Nanotechnology Discovery
At first glance, 6,645,455 does not seem a significant number, but it represents one of the most revolutionary inventions in recent U.S. history -- the patent for chemically derivatized carbon nanotubes. Poised to change the world of computing, medicine, and science, U.S. Patent No. 6,645,455, providing a method for separating and chemically modifying carbon nanotubes, was recently recognized by MIT's publication, Technology Review as one of the industry's "5 Killer Patents."
