Diatomaceous earth is a common material that we buy in bulk and put into our pool filters and kitty litter. If you thought it was just dirt take a close look. We are mining fossils; an antique algae that looks like a nanomachine.

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
