‪ Bytesize Science‬ - ‪Nanotechnology Today‬: ‪Fuel Cells, Buckyballs and Carbon Nanotubes‬

 Reactions  show

Summary: To celebrate the 25th anniversary of National Chemistry Week, we visited the Maryland Nanocenter at the University of Maryland (UMD) to check out the latest research in nanotechnology -- this year's theme for NCW. Three UMD researchers explain how their work in the nano-scale could lead to better fuel cells, solar cells, cancer treatments and super strong materials made from carbon nanotubes. It's a first hand look at the exciting applications of nanotechnology available today, and those that are just around the corner.
