Nanomaterials That Can Save the World
Jeong-O Lee, Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology

During the last century, mankind experienced tremendous progresses in science, technology and economy. Life expectancy becomes much longer, and humankind in general enjoys the improved quality of life. There are side effects to such changes however; a population explosion and consequent shortage of resources, and aging of the population.
In this session, two different approaches to solve such problems using nanomaterials will be introduced. First, nanomaterials can be used as efficient tools for disease diagnostics, drug delivery and drug discovery in order to solve the problems stem from global aging. And secondly, a novel approach to use nanomaterials to develop next generation energy devices and systems with high energy density will be demonstrated.
