Nanotechnology Today – Fuel Cells, Buckyballs and Carbon Nanotubes

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. Check out the video for a first hand look at the exciting applications of nanotechnology available today, and those that are just around the corner.

Drs. Eichhorn and Reutt-Robey at the University of Maryland ‘illuminate’ for us some of the current nano-technology being developed for commercial applications.
