For nanotechnology to move forward - scientists need to consider the advantages of "green" chemistry according to a leading US nanotechnologist.
"Green chemistry allows us to think about new space and new parameters," Hutchison said. "We have the opportunity to develop the technology correctly from the beginning, rather than trying to rework and entrenched technology.
"We should commit ourselves to design these materials and processes to be green from the beginning, and this will provide a lot of freedom from layers of regulation to researchers and companies, allowing for more innovation."
