ABSTRACT
Reports on the development of nano-tweezers capable of manipulating materials molecule-by-molecule, paving the way for nano-robots. Success of researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden in controlling their self-assembly process to such a degree that they have tied carbon nanotubes in knots; Development of a system of carbon nanotube self-assembly, the series of chemical reactions that gives rise to nano-structures.
