Scientists use nanoparticles to control growth of materials

Researchers have developed a new process to control molecular growth within the 'building block' components of inorganic materials. The method, which uses nanoparticles to organize the components during a critical phase of the manufacturing process, could lead to innovative new materials, such as self-lubricating bearings for engines, and it could make it feasible for them to be mass-produced.
