Lightweight nanomaterial superior to many metals

Abstract:
Israeli researchers have created an organic spherical nanomaterial that they claim is lightweight, as strong as steel and environmentally friendly. The nanostructure may be used for medical implants, as construction material or even in the production of bullet-proof vests, they said.
