Current Issue: January 2008

Welcome to the first issue of Materials World for 2008. This month we focus on Nanotechnology. John Gearing, Managing Director of Gearing Scientific Ltd, Ashwell, UK, discusses the measuring and testing of materials at the nanoscale, while Dr Cristianne Rijcken, a Postdoctoral Fellow from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, explores nanomaterials for drug delivery systems. Related articles focus on the future of nanotechnology and imaging materials at the nanoscale. In other feature stories, Michael Forrest takes a look at niobium mining in Araxa, Brazil and reports on the MinSouth commodity day, which focused on copper.
   In our news section, the Materials World team investigates the development of electrochemical technology to aid micro- and nanoscale substrate patterning, and recycling carbon-fibre based composites.
