Nano-Terra Partners With Merck Kgaa
Nano-Terra, in Cambridge, Mass., and Germany's Merck, through its North American affiliate EMD Chemicals, will work together to apply nanoscale molecular fabrication methods to the production of specialty chemicals. A goal of the work, which they will conduct largely in Nano-Terra's labs, is to create new physical properties in materials that Merck currently makes and sells. The firms expect the first products from their collaboration to be available by early 2008. Privately held Nano-Terra was created in early 2005 by entrepreneur Carmichael Roberts and Harvard University chemistry professor George M. Whitesides.
