U.S.-Israeli outfit greases wheels of nano commercialization

Abstract:
Back in 1992 a team of researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel was looking for a technology to convert solar energy into electricity. What they found instead was a substance that was an excellent lubricant; had great shock absorbing powers, and was an efficient semiconductor.

Today, a U.S.-Israeli startup, ApNano Materials Inc., is commercializing that serendipitous discovery. The substance was inorganic fullerenes, nanoparticles of tungsten disulfide or similar materials with a unique spherical structure and a diameter of less than 100 nanometers.
