The chemical engineering ‘down-sizers’ (Day 232)

Molecular DreamChemical engineers have been described as industry’s ‘super-sizers’. They can take the smallest product developed in a lab and reproduce it on a huge scale, perfectly.

But we also operate at the other end of the scale – at the nano-level.

It’s an area with┬álots of controversy surrounding its use. I think most of comes from a lack of understanding, even within our profession.

Anything we can do better to understand how things work at this small scale can only help further our acceptance – and the publics – understanding of when it is appropriate to use such materials.
