Copyright Nano-Tek UK Technology Ltd 2005. Nanotechnology A New Era of Understanding What may surprise some people is that Nanotechnology is not new. As early as 450AD the Mayan culture used Nanotechnology in the preparation of pigments from gold. Only now do we understand the science of nano-particulate matter behind this ancient technology. What has brought Nanotechnology to the forefront of the public consciousness? Advanced scientific methods enable mankind to Probe, Understand and Control this previously enigmatic domain. The gap in scientific understanding between bulk matter and the molecule is being closed. Understanding facilitates innovation Innovation leads to commercial application
