A test of determination: tenure

It’s amazing what another job offer can do. Sometimes, your value is best determined by testing it on the market.

Lessons learned

a person walking on stepping stones
  1. You can’t do it alone.
  2. Make good friends and colleagues and don’t neglect them.
  3. Don’t let other people define your job, your family or your recipe for happiness.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
