Nano-Terra's groundbreaking nano-scale fabrication methods to be used to develop advanced materials and devices for 3M

Nano-Terra Inc. Announces Multi-Year Development and Licensing Agreement with 3M

Cambridge, MA | Posted on May 17th, 2007

In an effort to more fully realize the potential of nanotechnology fabrication in advanced materials and devices, the Nano-Terra Company today announced a multi-year development and licensing agreement with 3M (NYSE: MMM). Nano-Terra is a privately-held company focused on commercializing industrial applications of nano- and micro- technologies that have been developed by Nano-Terra co-founder Dr. George Whitesides at his renowned laboratory at Harvard University.

The cooperative agreement is designed to bring to market innovative,
nanotechnology-based products and solutions made possible by the
groundbreaking nano-scale, molecular fabrication methods pioneered by
Professor Whitesides and the scientists at Nano-Terra. The Cambridge-based
company is employing the design and manipulation of molecular structures
for the creation of new properties and functionalities in materials.

Carmichael Roberts, Vice Chairman and co-founder of Nano-Terra, said,
"3M is an innovative, diversified technology company with a stable of
well-known brands, and is a global leader in commercializing
nanotechnology. We are proud they have chosen Nano-Terra as a collaborative
partner with the technology and expertise to apply nano-scale fabrication
to commercially viable processes and products. As a first step, we are
focusing on how our expertise in soft lithography and in molecular
self-assembly can support 3M's own development work in certain application
areas."

The co-development work will be performed primarily at Nano-Terra's lab
facilities in Cambridge, with frequent input from and milestone reviews by
3M.
