The changing economics of nanotech

Abstract:
Jack Uldrich: This past week witnessed two rather startling developments which I believe fundamentally alter the economics of nanotechnology and could lead to significant commercial growth. The first revolves around Dendritic NanoTechnologies (DNT) announcement that it has developed a new type of dendrmer -- the Priostar. What makes the Priostar so important is that it can be produced in just a few days at a cost of less than $10 a gram. This is a radical improvement over DNT's PAMAM dendrimer which took almost 30 days to produce and cost $2000 a gram.
