Moving up the value chain

Abstract:
It would hardly seem possible that an unpronounceable material like polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS), which in the recent past cost as much as $200 per pound, could find itself quickly becoming a commodity bulk material. But it’s not too far-fetched as analysts expect the material to drop to about $15 per pound in just a few years. Okay, that’s still not bulk material prices, but the trend is inexorably downward. So POSS joins carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and whole families of nanoparticles in making the transition from high value nanotech to low value bulk chemicals.
