It’s Alive: The Coming Convergence of Information, Biology and Business by Christopher Meyer and Stan Davis
AbstractA colleague who teaches chemistry and physics and I were discussing his dissertation work. He told me he was creating a new compound that would bond with mercury. This compound could be used by water companies seeking to remove this dangerous heavy metal from water. He said that they did not know the specific mechanism by which this occurred because the material is opaque and thus cannot be examined through even a sophisticated electron microscope.
