UO patent opens way for green nano

Abstract:
A patent issued today to the University of Oregon provides an environmentally benign solution to an important challenge in nanotechnology. A process developed by chemistry professor Jim Hutchison eliminates the need to use two highly toxic chemicals in the production of functionalized gold nanoparticles. His innovation is part of the university's effort to develop safer manufacturing processes for nanoscale materials, those measuring less than 100 billionths of a meter.
