Nanopolymers make their debut

Abstract:
Researchers in the US have made a new class of materials called "nanopolymers" -- the first nanoscale equivalents of polymers. The breakthrough was made by Francesco Stellacci and colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and involves introducing defects onto two opposing areas on the surface of spherical-shaped metallic nanoparticles. The resulting divalent particles are then chained together to make freestanding films (Science 315 358).
