ACS publication highlights nanotech

from the chemists-at-work dept.
The November issue of Todayís Chemist At Work, a publication of the American Chemical Society, trumpets a pair of feature articles on nanotechnology. One article ("Manipulating molecules", by Hank Simon) provides an extensive overview of the development of the system that combined virtual reality and an atomic force microscope to create a nanoManipulator. The system was developed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and is being marketed as a commercial product by a spinoff firm, 3rdTech.
A second feature article discusses organic conductive polymers in really flat panel displays (which you might roll up in your pocket), but the nanotech connection is tenuous at best.
There is also a very short news item on private investment in nano-materials and nanotech firms.
