I don't have a problem with the word "nanotechnology," but it has spawned a spreading wave of nano-words that are getting very annoying - see here: Small science may clean a big problem csmonitor.com

Why use the term "nanoparticle" when the word "molecule" is already available? Answer: marketing. It would be nice to have some detail in what these large molecules containing iron are - a Frankenstein's hemoglobin? Engineered using enzymes from living cells, no doubt. Hemoglobin has hundreds of carbon atoms for each iron atom - I feel like I'm getting spin-only here.

Ok, I can use google. The abstract of the original research is on the ACS site here: http://pubs.acs.org/cgi-bin/abstract.cgi/esthag/asap/abs/es049190u.html Must schedule a trip to the science library to look at the actual article.
