Nano-agents that strip for action

Abstract:
Nanotechnology has invaded the fuel tank. But forget Prince Charles's "grey goo" and science fiction tales of rampaging swarms of nano-robots. This invader is a harmless diesel fuel additive, and just a teaspoon in your tank can not only increase your fuel economy by up to 10 per cent, but also significantly cut harmful exhaust emissions. Composed of nano-scale particles between eight and 12 billionths of a metre across, Envirox is the result of four years of development by Oxonica, a spin-off company from Oxford University.
