Preserving the nano 'snowflake'
Between lectures at Saturday's Undergraduate Nanotechnology Conference, The Varsity sat down with U of T chemistry Professor John Polanyi, a 1986 Nobel Prize winner and the recipient of over thirty honourary degrees.
The Varsity: What is the most exciting part of nanotechnology?
Polanyi: The most exciting thing is the fundamental science. It's still such an early stage in the history of nanotechnology that it's the "nano" rather than the "technology" that needs the most work, and that's where the opportunities lie.
