We conducted an exclusive interview with Mike Foley,
Founding Director of CheapTubes Inc.
worldwide leading distributor of nano carbon materials, located in Vermont USA.
CheapTubes supplies various kinds of CNTs from single, double, and multi wall
to functionalized and graphitized CNTs with various lengths at competitive
prices yet high quality. They also supply single layer graphene oxide that can
be applied such as for transparent conductive coatings, and other nano carbon
based materials. Read our article of the interview

Consortium in Singapore
Differing from the conventional industry consortium,
Singapore Institute of Materials Research of Engineering (IMRE) provides a
platform for building a global industry consortium connecting R&D
capability in Singapore and industry beyond the borders. The Industry
Consortium on Nanoimprint (ICON) covers the full value chain in Nanoimprint
technology and products. IMRE will officially launch ICON together with the 4th
Industrial Symposium on Nanoimprint Lithography on 3rd August 2010
at IMRE. Initiated by Dr Low Hong Yee (Nanoimprint Program Director of IMRE),
the consortium aims to advance the nanoimprint R&D and accelerate the transfer
of nanoimprint technology to industries. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for more details and information at our event website
provides professional services based on our unparalleled understanding of
nanotechnology in Asia. Our participation in Asian nanotechnology events
and site-visits give us deep insight into policy issues, strategic intelligence
needs, and the ability to analyze nanotech innovation for commercialization. We
would be honoured to discuss our consulting services and to work together for
your business development success. Click on the Services Button of our website
We continue our "round the world" nano tour of events and site visits and share what we have seen and experienced in our weekly articles appear at Nanotechnology Now website (Nanotechnology in Asia Column), Bimonthly SingNano Newsletter and the Asia Nano Forum Quarterly newsletters and Annual Reports.
At the end of July 2009, we published a book titled "Emerging Nanotechnology Power: Nanotechnology R&D and Business Trends in the Asia Pacific Rim"
which is the only book today covering nanotechnology updated
development in the Asia Pacific region in terms of policy, funding,
infrastructure, education, R&D and commercialization, and
standardization and risk management.

NanoGlobe was invited to participate in Tsukuba
Nanotech Innovation Arena (TIA nano, a USD500M nanotech center to be built
starting this year) - Nanotech International Workshop held in the Japan
National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)
located in the Japan science city Tsukuba during 15-16 February 2010. Dr Liu
was an invited panelist and shared our experience on international
collaboration in nanotechnology R&D and commercialization.
NanoGlobe partnered with International Enterprise (IE) Singapore
organized the Singapore Pavilion to participate in nano tech 2010, the largest
annual nanotech conference & exhibition in Tokyo Japan, 17-19 February
2010. It was our third time in organizing the Singapore Pavilion to showcase
