This is our comprehensive summer double editi- on with a great number of industry and research news. One focus is on environmental techno- logies (pages 60, 76). We also included the last report by Cientifica (Global Nanotechnology Funding 2011, page 101) that shows for nanotech the US is still the place to be although China and Russia are increasingly attractive.
The number of news on GRAPHENE is quite stri- king. That opens up the possibility for a replace- ment of e.g. silicon. Even if graphene still is a very special material it will slowly develop into a “standard” material like the nanotubes.
