Narrator: This is Science Today. At the University of California, Riverside, researchers are working to develop what they call nanoplatforms for various applications – including the field of nanoelectronics and even cancer therapeutics. Chemical engineer Cenzan Ozkan says the implications are enormous.
Ozkan: First of all, you will be able to generate very high speed electronics and they will be useful for a variety of purposes and carbon nanotubes can be employed together if you connect them or hybridize them with bio molecules such as DNA. So, with the aid of nanotechnology or bio nanotechnology, we aim to incorporate these additional functionalities so that you get more overall speed or functional properties that only serves much better to society.
