The Environmental Protection Agency announced today that the Presidential Green Chemistry Award 2007 was awarded for the project, Direct Synthesis of Hydrogen Peroxide by Selective Nanocatalyst Technology.
Researchers have used nanotechnology to create transparent transistors and circuits, a step that promises a broad range of applications, from e-paper and flexible color screens for consumer electronics to smart cards and heads-up displays in auto windshields.
Researchers have shown that such bioelectronic hybrid systems are no longer just a utopian vision. A new report describes the coupling of a receptor to a silicon chip by means of a cellā??transistor interface.
Over the coming 3 years, the key scientists involved in this European nanotechnology research project will be making video diaries and posting them on this web site, along with blogs of their work and lives.
With research backgrounds ranging from materials engineering to molecular biophysics, seventeen leading scientists issued a statement today announcing that, much as the discovery of DNA and creation of the transistor revolutionized science, there is a new scientific field on the brink of revolutionizing our approach to problems ranging from eco-safe energy to outbreaks of malaria.
Dr. Zhong Lin Wang, an expert in nanotechnology and inventor of the world's first nanogenerator, will be the keynote speaker at Nano Summit 2007, which will be hosted by Texas A&M University's Dwight Look College of Engineering.
