New nano knight

Like Comment

Seeing as my last post of 2006 was about awards, it’s not such a bad idea to start 2007 with something along the same lines.

Chemistry (and nanotechnology) has a new knight – not sure if that comes with shining armour or not though! In the New Year’s Honours List, Fraser Stoddart, professor at UCLA, receives a knighthood for his services to chemistry and molecular nanotechnology. I wonder if Sir Fraser will be rubbing shoulders with ‘Sir’ Bono, who received an honourary knighthood this year…?!
