    Life cycle assessments are essential tools for ensuring the safe, responsible, and sustainable commercialization of a new technology. Such an assessment takes a cradle-to-grave look at the health and environmental impact of a material, chemical, or product. With missing data about the large scale impact of nanotechnology, life cycle...

    The silicon chip took over forty years to approach a $300 billion business today. A new form of electronics – printed electronics – will hit that figure in half the time because, unlike the silicon chip, it subsumes electrics such as lighting, batteries, solar cells and heaters, not just electronics. It is usually achieved by...

    When nanoparticles enter the human body, for instance as part of a nanomedicine application, they come into immediate contact with a collection of biomolecules, such as proteins, that are characteristic of that environment, e.g. blood. A protein may become associated with the nanomaterial surface during a protein-nanomaterial interaction, in a...

    A space elevator based on carbon nanotube (CNT) cables is one of those ideas from 1950s-style futurism that are so whacky they might just work. There is an annual Space Elevator Conference to discuss progress and a Japanese construction firm even has announced plans to build a space elevator by 2050. These plans mostly depend on carbon nanotubes...
