Singapore research body makes breakthrough in nano-particles

Abstract:
Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, has managed to create a new class of nano-particles, which may lead to lower costs in pharmaceuticals production.

"By introducing these new nano-particles, we have made this traditional catalyst into a solid phase material, and they can easily be separated out from the products. So you are separating a solid from a liquid by simple filtration. This will make the manufacturing process a lot more efficient, and will allow you to recover these expensive catalystic materials," said Prof Ying, executive director of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology.
