One of the weeks more astonishing claims, and worthy of many of the new nanotechnorati, is that the addition of nanotechnology has the promise to " that promise to make, say, a T-shirt worth a lot more than it is now."

While that may be sufficient evidence of a quick buck for Merrill Lynch to run out and base an index on, we have long been fascinated by the confusion between activated charcoal (commonly used for its odour absorbing properties) and certain other forms of carbon such as fullerenes.

As always, it is tricky to determine what has been lost in translation, especially when dealing with Bamboo Charcoal, but we predict that the combination of nanotechnology with natural products will become a hot issue this year, especially in Asia.
