Faking Out The Fakers

Abstract:
Faced with a tidal wave of counterfeit goods, companies are turning to secretive sci-fi technology. But crooks catch on fast

Next time you fill up at the pump, there's a good chance you'll be injecting billions of nanoparticles into your tank. These marker molecules are in much of the gasoline at U.S. pumps, allowing gas companies to determine whether the fuel you're buying is the real stuff or some adulterated mix. If you think that's weird, a similar organic tracing compound may one day be coursing through your alimentary canal as you sip a scotch on the rocks.
