ChemMatters debuts first video podcast on nanotechnology’s big impact

Washington, DC | Posted on November 8th, 2009

The podcast highlights the promises of nanotechnology, the science and technology of building very small machines that are as small as 1/50,000th the width of a human hair. It is available at www.bytesizescience.com and on the Bytesize Science podcast on iTunes.

Produced by the team behind ACS' award-winning Bytesize Science video podcast, the ChemMatters video serves as an entertaining and educational introduction to the fascinating world of nanotechnology. The episode explains how incredibly small materials could lead to tiny devices that bring medicine exactly where it needs to go in your body, powerful computers the size of a grain of sand and new sources of energy.

ChemMatters has been demystifying the chemistry in our everyday lives for over 25 years. Released quarterly, each issue contains readable articles about the chemistry used in everyday life, and is of interest to high school students and their teachers. New episodes of the ChemMatters video podcast will be available in early 2010. For more entertaining video podcasts from the ACS, go to www.bytesizescience.com.

* Subscribe to Bytesize Science and ChemMatters in iTunes (requires iTunes software)
* No iTunes? No problem. Check out recent episodes of ChemMatters and Bytesize Science at www.BytesizeScience.com.

ChemMatters and Bytesize Science are produced by the ACS Office of Public Affairs.
