  6. 6. NANOT RA NSPO TECHNOLOGY: RT TO A HEY ANTONIO, HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?NEW UNIVERSE NO, I HAVEN’T. WHAT IS IT? MS. SANDRA, THE THE FABRICSTHE SUPERVISOR IS THE WAY SHE ELECTRONICS GO HAVE TO GET TO COMING ON A TRIP ENJOYS COMPUTERS, TO MINAS GERAIS. MANAUS TODAY! WITH US! SHE’LL LOVE THIS NEW THE COSMETICS, TRUCK. IT ALMOST CAN SPEAK! TO ACRE! NOTHING CAN BE LATE, GUYS! WOW! I ‘M SUPERVISING TECHNOLOGY KEEPS US THE WORK FOR YOU, COOL DOESN’T IT GUYS? THAT’S ALL! I CAN SEE HOW CALM YOU WELL, MS. SANDRA, ARE MS. SANDRA! I DON’T KNOW ABOUT COOL AND CALM, BUT I DO SO, WELCOME LIKE VIDEO GAMES! ABOARD! LET’S HIT THE ROAD! 5
  7. 7. SOMETIME LATER,LEAVING THE GARAGE... IT’S A WASTE OF TIME LISTENING TO AN OLD SONG ON A NEW RADIO... LET’S PLAY MUSIC TO KEEP US AWAKE! OK, I’LL TURN IT OFF! GAS LAMP GAS LAMP IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG TRIP...SOMETIME LATER... SO, LET’S SEE... ACCORDING TO THE TRAFFIC AND THE COMPANY MANUAL, IT’S ABOUT TIME TO SLOW DOWN AND TURN ON THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS. BUT... WHAT EXACTLY DOES WE DON’T NANOTECHNOLOGY NEED WINDSHIELD MEAN? WIPERS FOR THIS TRUCK! OH, BOY! IT’S VERY COMPLICATED... IT DEALS WITH VERY TINY REALLY? MATERIALS... YOU WHY? WOULDN’T UNDERSTAND! BECAUSE THIS TRUCK WAS MADE WITH THE LATEST IN INNOVATIVE MATERIALS! WITH NANOTECHNOLOGY! THE GLASS IS COVERED WITH A NANOSTRUCTURED FILM. ISN’T THAT AWESOME? 6
  8. 8. IT’S LIKE THIS: NANOTECHNOLOGY INVOLVES AND HOW WOULD THE STUDY AND MANIPULATION YOU KNOW THAT, MR. OF A MATERIAL ON A VERY SMALL TRUCK DRIVER? SCALE! SOMETHING IN THE RANGE 1 TO 100 NANOMETERS... MS. SANDRA, I DO ENJOY MY VIOLA AND AN OLD TRUCK, BUT I CAN UNDERSTAND OTHER THINGS. …IN ORDER TO I LEARNED GET A NANOMETER, ABOUT IT IN A CLASS ON YOU DIVIDE A INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY METER BY A AT THE TRUCK DRIVERS BILLION! UNION! THAT’S CRAZY! BUT TELL ME MORE ABOUT THESE EVERYTHING WE SEE IS MADE NANOTECHNOLOGIES! UP OF ATOMS AND MOLECULES. SO IF YOU TAKE ONE MOLECULE AND CONSIDER THE SMALLEST PART OF THAT SUBSTANCE, THAT REMAINS THE WELL, SAME SUBSTANCE – FOR EXAMPLE, THE SMALLEST LET’S SEE… PIECE OF WATER THAT IS STILL WATER – YOU KNOW? A VERRRRRRRRRRRY SMALL DROP OF WATER!LET ME TALK! BUT THEN AGAIN MAN, AND AS I UNDERSTAND IT, YOU CAN EVEN DIVIDE THIS WE CAN EVEN TAKE THESE ATOMSMOLECULE. BUT IT WON’T BE WATER AND, DEPENDING ON THE TYPES WE MIX,ANYMORE. ATOMS ARE ONLY: TWO OF THE RESULT BECOMES DIFFERENT THINGS. HYDROGEN AND ONE OF OXYGEN, FOR INSTANCE, MIXING HYDROGEN WITH MAKES H2O, LIKE YOU HAVE CARBON, WE CAN EVEN GET LEARNED AT SCHOOL. PAVEMENT OR PITCH. YOU’RE VERY HMM.... WELL INFORMED, I GUESS I SLEPT MR. ANTONIO! SO MUCH THROUGH THAT INFORMATION, AND CLASS! DOESN’T EVEN OWN A CELL PHONE! 7
  9. 9. AND A WOW! SO, A NANOMETER... HOW MOLECULE OF WATER IS SO MUCH IS THAT? TINY, IT CAN BE COMPARED TO A GRAIN OF SAND? IT’S LIKE THIS: TO GET ONE NANOMETER, YOU DIVIDE A METER BY A NO! A BILLION, OR, A MILLIMETER MOLECULE OF WATER IS BY A MILLION.EVEN SMALLER. IT’S ONLY A NANOMETER IN SIZE. HOLD ON! SO, THINK OF THAT NANOTECHNOLOGY DEALS TRIP WE TOOK TO THE WITH THESE ULTRA-SUPER NORTH, TO DELIVER BANANAS. TINY THINGS? THE DISTANCE BETWEEN NATAL AND SALVADOR, IS ABOUT 700 MILES (1,126 KM). IMAGINE A YES... GRAIN OF SAND IN ALL THIS LET ME TELL YOU. DISTANCE AS A NANOMETER COMPANIES AND SCIENTISTS IS TO A METER! ARE ALREADY WORKING WITH MATERIALS ON THE NANOSCALE! MANIPULATION MOLECULES, ISN’T THAT AMAZING? THAT’S CRAZY MRS. HMM... SANDRA! ARE THESE THINGS WELL, WHAT KINDS GOING TO BE SOLD ON THE OF MATERIALS? MARKET? TAKE THE GLASS ON THIS YES, THERE ARE TRUCK, FOR EXAMPLE. NOW WE DON’TALREADY SOME PRODUCTS NEED TO CLEAN OR WIPE THE WINDSHIELD BECAUSE IT’S STRUCTURED ON THE MADE FROM NANOSCALE NANOSCALE SO THE WATER JUST MATERIALS. RUNS RIGHT OFF IT. 8
  10. 10. SO, THIS ANT NANOTECHNOLOGY THING IS ESIST AIN R WRIN KLE! REALLY GOOD! RIGHT NOW I AM IS ST SN´T H ERE E REMEMBERING A MOVIE THATAN D T IC THAT DO NANO GLU SHOWED EXACTLY THAT... FA BR MATER E THAT STI ! IAL TO CK SOMETHING TO DO WITH VERY RIAL DUST A NOTHES ANY ANTIBACTE R! SMALL MACHINES… BUT WAIT A MINUTE! GROOVY! MS. SANDRA FORGOT TO GLASS COATING AN D ! EXPLAIN THE PROBLEMS LS ANTI-CORROSIO N MATERIA WITH NANOTECHNOLOGY. ELETRONIC EQUIPAMENT! THE COSMETICS WE´RE DELIVERING!... AT THE NANO LEVEL, PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS CAN CHANGE. WHAT IS STABLE IN BIGGER SIZES CAN BE VERY REACTIVE. WHAT WELL, ARE IS INSULATING CAN BE CONDUCTIVE. THERE ANY WHAT IS OPAQUE CAN TURN PROBLEMS? TRANSPARENT... WHAT ARE HELLO YOU LOOKING AT, LITTLE “BRO”? OH, YES!!! FRIENDS!!! THERE ARE LOTS OF PROBLEMS! NOOOO! GOLD, FOR INSTANCE. GOLD THAT’S NOT WHEN WE HAVE A GOLDEN GOLDEN?! RING, IT’S GOLD, ISN’T IT? BUT THAT’S TRUE, ON THE NANO SCALE, GOLD BUT IT’S NOT CAN EVEN CHANGE JUST BECAUSE COLOR! JUST THAT! IT CHANGES COLOR, DOESN’T MEAN THAT’S A PROBLEM...! 9
  11. 11. THINKS ABOUT THIS: MATERIALS THAT ARE JUST BECAUSE IT WORKS IN A SAFE IN A REGULAR SIZE, CAN GET REGULAR SIZE, DOESN’T MEAN IT UNDER THE SKIN AS NANOPARTICLES, WILL WORK THE SAME WAY ON OR THEY CAN GO AEROSOL AND GET INTO THE NANO SCALE. THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM. WHAT A WOW... PROBLEMATIC THAT’S WOMAN… FRIGHTENING! RIGHT! BUT THINK ABOUT SO, THE ADVANTAGES! NANOTECHNOLOGY NOW WHAT, IS REALLY GOOD! IT CAN HELP IN MR. KNOW-IT-ALL? AGRICULTURE, MEDICINE, WATER PURIFICATION, COMPUTERS... MY COSMETICS! HERE’S THE THING: NOW, SHE’S GOT THIS IS ALL VERY NICE, BUT US! I BET THEY DIDN’T HOW CAN WE USE IT, IF WE EXPLAIN THAT AT THE DON’T KNOW IT WON’T HARM TEAMSTERS UNION HUMAN HEALTH? COURSE. COMPANIES SPEND A LOT OF I WOULD SUGGEST THAT MONEY RESEARCHING MATERIALS THESE FOLKS STUDY WHETHER THAT WORK ON THE NANO SCALE, NANOMATERIALS, BECAUSE OF THEIR SIZE OR AND ALMOST NOTHING STUDYING THEIR COMPOSITION COULD POSSIBLY DO HARM WHETHER THEY ARE HARMFUL TO PEOPLE. THAT SOMEONE BE ABLE TO SAY, THIS IS GOOD OR THIS IS BAD. TO HEALTH. BLAH, BLAH BAH! THERE ARE ALWAYS I GOT IT!COMPLAINTS... WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? 10
  12. 12. MR. ANTONIO, I THINK HMM.... MS. SANDRA’S RIGHT! AREN’T YOUSO PESSIMISTIC! OVERREACTING? IF THEY WERE AS AND I’LL SAY MORE: DANGEROUS AS YOU SAY, NO ONE BOTH THE GOVERNMENT WOULD HANDLE THEM! AND THE WORKERS IN THE UNION NEED TO KEEP THAT’S RIGHT, GABRIEL! AN EYE ON THESE THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST AFRAID TECHNOLOGIES! OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES, ANYTHING NEW! YOU’RE WRONG MS. SANDRA! LIKE WHAT, IT’S NOT FEAR; YOU JUST HAVE TO BE MR. ANTONIO? CAREFUL! THERE ARE LOTS OF DANGEROUS PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET, AND PEOPLE ONLY ASBESTOS-LINEDFIND OUT ABOUT THE DANGERS WHEN IT’S TOO VEHICLE BRAKES, FOR LATE. THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF DANGEROUS EXAMPLE. THEY HAD TO TAKE THE PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET! ASBESTOS OUT OF THE BRAKES BECAUSE IT WAS PROVEN PARTICLES WERE RELEASED BY THAT, AND CAUSED CANCER! OH, THAT’S SILLY A MISTAKE? MR. ANTONIO! THE JUST LIKE OTHER ACCIDENTS WE’VE HAD INDUSTRY JUST MADE IN THE PAST, SUCH AS ALCOHOL IN CHILDREN’S A MISTAKE! VITAMINS, OR LEAD-BASED PAINT IN CHILDREN’S TOYS, TRANS FAT IN FOOD OR THAT’S TRUE, LEAD IN GASOLINE? MR. ANTONIO! IT WAS NOW JUST AN ACCIDENT! HE’S GOT YOU, MS. SANDRA! YIKES! 11
  13. 13. SO, THAT HOW IT SHOULD BE? JUSTIGNORE NANOTECHNOLOGY HMM... AND THAT’S IT? I WONDER IF IT’S NO, NOBODY HAS TO IGNORE ANYTHING, GOING TO RAIN, TAKE IT EASY, MS. SANDRA! PEOPLE JUST NEED TO TODAY? ANTONIO, ONLY BE BETTER INFORMED BEFORE USING A LITTLE TIME TO NEW THINGS. THEY NEED TO STUDY AND WHAT A DRAG! GO BEFORE DISCOVER THE CONSEQUENCES RETIREMENT! NANOTECHNOLOGY MIGHT HAVE... THE GOOD AND THE BAD.TIMES GOES BY AND NIGHT FALLS OVER THE HIGHWAY... WHILE EVERYONE ELSE GETS TO SLEEP, I’M STILL HERE, DRIVING ON AND ON AND ON....THANK GOD WE’RE ALMOST THERE! I CAN’T WAIT TO LISTEN TO THE NEW COUNTRY CD’S I BOUGHT 12
  14. 14. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT MS.SANDRA’S DREAM... YOU’LL BE FORGIVEN, AS SOON AS YOU SEND 30 TEXT MESSAGES O GREAT TO 30 DIFFERENT CELL PHONE ENLIGHTENED CELL PHONE, NUMBERS... O LAZY SERVANT! FORGIVE THE MISTAKES OF YOUR DEVOTED SERVANT! WE ARE ...AND GABRIEL’S DREAM... BUT... THAT NANOPARTICLES! WE HAVE CRAZY DREAM! BEEN MAGNIFIED NEARLY A WHO ARE YOU? BILLION TIMES TO LET YOU ALL THESE NANO SEE US! THINGS SEEM TO BE PRETTY CRAZY! TOO BAD I DON’T THAT ONE IS UNDERSTAND ANYTHING FLIP AND I AM FLOP. ABOUT THEM... HOW ARE YOU DOING, BUDDY? D RE O NA N CTU TRU GY O ES LO CHNO ANOTE NA N N NANOPARTICLES YIKES! MS. SANDRA AND MR. ANTONIO SAID YOU WERE INVISIBLE! THAT’S WE ARE INVISIBLE! WEDON’T HAVE PERSONALITIES CRAZY! AND WE AREN’T DIVIDED INTO MALE AND WELL... WE ARE THAT’S ALL FEMALE! PRODUCTS OF YOUR HE CAN SAY??? CRAZY, IMAGINATION! THAT’S CRAZY, CRAZY... WHY WE ARE PART OF YOUR DREAMS! OH, FLIP, LEAVE HIM ALONE. AFTER TELLING HIM ALL ABOUT IT, WE’LL TEACH HIM SOME NEW WORDS! 13
  15. 15. WE CAME TO SMART ASSES! DO A BIT OF REVIEWING! YOU WOW… COOL!WHAT DO YOU WANT DON’T DESERVE… BUT WE SO, SMART GUY... LET’S TO TELL ME? WOULD LIKE TO SHOW UP IN GET BACK TO THE SIZE OF MATTER THIS STORY! INSTEAD OF THE BANANA DELIVERY. THINK OF IT LIKE THIS... WE’VE REALIZED THAT YOU DIDN’T UNDERSTAND A THING ABOUT THE SIZE NANO. THAT’S WHY WE CAME TO HELP! OF A NANOPARTICLE IS TO A SOCCER BALL, LIKE THE SOCCER BALL IS TO THE SIZE OF PLANET EARTH! NOW, I’VE GOT IT. BALL?... EARTH?... THIS VERY SMALL LITTLE THING NANOPARTICLES? IS HARD TO GET! AAUGH! ... IF A NANOPARTICLE YES... WE CAN SEE WERE THE SIZE OF A THAT! SOME PEOPLE TAKE SOCCER BALL... LONGER THAN OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND IT... THE SOCCER BALL WOULD BE THE SIZE OF THE EARTH, GOT IT “SMURF”? LEAVE THE GUY ALONE, FLIP! LET’S REVIEW THE CONSEQUENCES OF USING THIS TINY SIZE IN THE USE OF NANOPARTICLES! WOW... AND SINCE WE ARE SO LITTLE, YOU LOST ME WE’VE GOT A HIGH RATIO BETWEEN AGAIN! SURFACE AND VOLUME. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE NEW PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL WE THOUGHT SO…JUST PROPRIETIES! THINK OF SALT. NOW COMPARE THE SAME AMOUNT OF ROCK SALT TO REFINED SALT... AND THAT INCLUDES INCREASED WHICH ONE TAKES UP CHEMICAL REACTIVITY ON MORE SPACE? VOLUME? THE SURFACE OF WHICH ONE DISSOLVES NANOPARTICLES! MORE EASILY? 14
  16. 16. REFINED? THE ONE HOW ABOUT YOU?WE USE ON FOOD, IS WILL YOU CHANGE THE THAT IT? THAT’S RIGHT! WORLD? IT’S THE SAME IDEA WITH US NANOTECNOLOGIES DON’T -- SINCE WE ARE SO LITTLE, NEED MUCH WORK, SPACE OR WE REACT MORE! MAINTENANCE! BUT NOTICE “LITTLE SMURF”: THIS ISN’T A NEW PROPERTY, WE ARE GOING TO BUT IT SHOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE MEAN MAJOR CHANGES IN SIZE OF NANOPARTICLES, AND THE SIZE SOCIETY, THE ECONOMY, OF PARTICLES IN THE PROPERTIES OF THEENVIRONMENT AND SUBSTANCES. THE MILITARY! THAT’S COOL, MAN! CARBON NANOTUBES ARE STRUCTURED IN CYLIN- AND NOW... TA-DA! DRICAL SHAPES MADE OF CARBON ATOMS WHOSE LET’S INTRODUCE SOME MEMBERS DIAMETERS ARE FROM ONE TO 20 NANOMETERS, OF OUR FAMILY TO YOU! AND WHOSE LENGTH CAN BE 18,000 NANOMETERS. THEY ARE ALMOST 100.000 TIMES THINNER THAN A HAIR. RESEARCHERS HAVE BEEN STUDYING THEIR USE IN STRUCTURES BY REPLACING STEEL, IN CARBON NANOTUBES, CONDUCTING MATERIALS AND SEMICONDUCTORS, FULLERENES AND NANOLAYERS! OR EVEN CHIPS FOR COMPUTERS. OUR RELATIVES ARE GORGEOUS, AREN’T THEY? I AM VERY LITTLE, BUT VERY STRONG!FULLERENES ARE PURE CARBON SPHERES COMPOSEDBY 60 ATOMS OF CARBON (C60). THEY ARE ABOUT A NANOLAYERS ARE PRODUCED BY ENGINEEREDNANOMETER IN DIAMETER, ARRANGED IN 20 HEXA- NANOSCALE SURFACES AND LAYERS. THEY MAYGONS AND 12 PENTAGONS, LIKE A SOCCER BALL. GENERATE A WIDE RANGE OF FUNCTIONALITIES ANDTHEY CAN BE USED IN A PROCEDURE CALLED DRUG NEW PHYSICALEFFECTS. EXAMPLES OF THEIR USEDELIVERY, WHICH CONSISTS OF CARRYING DRUGS ARE: SELF-CLEANING SURFACES, LIKE WINDSHIELDSTO SPECIFIC PARTS OF THE BODY. THEY REACT DIF- OF THE TRUCK DRIVEN BY ANTONIO, CORROSIVEFERENTLY FROM CURRENT MEDICATIONS, SUCH AS PROTECTION FOR MACHINES AND EQUIPMENTS, ANDANTIBIOTICS, FOR EXAMPLE, THE ONES THAT KILL EVEN BANDAGES FOR WOUNDS...BAD BACTERIA, AS WELL AS GOOD BACTERIA. MS. BACTERIA I’VE BROUGHT YOU HO, HO, HO, A SURPRISE! WE ARE VERY CLEAN! HEAVEN! 15
  17. 17. THIS IS ALL COOL! AS YOU’VE SEEN, WE BUT MR. ANTONIO HAS SAID THAT AND OUR RELATIVES ARE NANOPARTICLES HAVEN’T BEEN STUDIED ENOUGH ALREADY SOLD IN THE IN ORDER TO LEARN ABOUT THEIR EFFECTS ON MARKET. HEALTH! HOW ABOUT THE RISKS TO WORKERS? HOW ABOUT OTHER PRODUCTS ALREADY AVAILABLE I MEAN, NOT BOTH OF ON THE MARKET AND SOMETIME LATER WERE US, RIGHT FLIP? WE ARE JUST FOUND TO BE DANGEROUS? PRODUCTS OF YOUR IMAGINATION... NANOPARTICLES CAN’T TALK! THAT GUY IT’S ALWAYS LIKE IS SMART! THAT! THEY SEEM SOME PEOPLE THAT VANISH WHEN THAT’S TRUE. IT’S TIME IT’S TIME TO TALK ABOUT THE INVESTMENTS IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MATERIALS IN TO GO, FLOP! OWN FAULTS! NANOTECHNOLOGY ARE 100 TO 1000 TIMES OK FLIP! THIS GREATER, DEPENDING ON THE COUNTRY, THAN BOY ASKS A LOT IN STUDIES OF THEIR IMPACT ON HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT! OF DIFFICULT QUESTIONS!ON THE HIGHWAY, LIFE GOES ON... NICE MUSIC! FOR A WHILE DEAR READER, THIS IS THE END! BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO WAIT TOO LONG FOR U-U? MORE ADVENTURES OF MS. SANDRA, ANTONIO AND GABRIEL! 16
