Error and misleading description in first sentence![edit]

"Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to "nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale". Nope this is wrong, nanotechnology is about the nanoscale, you know things measured conveniently in nm, sure at the lower end of this scale it begins to look like the molecular scale and at fractions of nm the atomic scale but for a couple of orders of magnitude, say 10-300nm it is still nanotechnology but it isn't definitely not atomic and only tenuously molecular scale, in fact, continuum mechanics rule the roost here (albeit with different material properties).

This needs fixing! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:29, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

I added "supramolecular" to the sentence. The isn't a exact definition for nanotechnology that's universally accepted, but I agree that the supramolecular scale should definitely be included. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 22:06, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Subject: You have an error on [1]


I noticed you have an error on this URL, [2]. The link with the anchor text [3] is pointing to a dead page.

If you want, I found another, similar page that you can replace that link with. You can find it here "" the page is even good enough for Wikipedia to link to it.

Keep up the good work!

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. This appears to be a request from some kind of (semi)-automated system, and I can't understand what the requester is asking to be changed. Please clarify your request which your end result will be best achieved with a clear please change "this text" to "this other text" based on th(is|ese) reliable source(s):
  • Source 1
  • Source 2
  • ...

Thank you for your interest in editing the English Wikipedia. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 19:53, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

The editor is requesting a change in the "Top-down approach" subsection of replacing the url (which is a deadlink) with Unfortunately, the suggested link is a spammy site about cosmetics and is not suitable for verifying a statement about giant magnetoresistance-based hard drives.

Nanotech and IP[edit]

Consider adding a small section covering the current debate about nanotechnology and IP. See for example:

Nanobots Rabotos[edit]

Sehr geherrte Damen und Herren hiermit teile Ich Ihnen mit das Ich so genante Nanobots im Koerper habe Wollte sie fragen wie steuert man diese ? Wie bekommt man die wieder aus dem Korperherraus ? Uber mir meine Nachbarn haben Sie in meinem Koerper rein gemacht. Weiss was man machen kann. Die Steuern diese übers Handy, habe keine ahnung davon. Ich werde seit ca 5000 Stunden Elektronisch vergewaltigt kann nix da gegen tuen finde kein handy app dazu. Brauche hielfe oder einen Ratschlag.

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Nanotechnology. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

You may set the |checked=, on this template, to true or failed to let other editors know you reviewed the change. If you find any errors, please use the tools below to fix them or call an editor by setting |needhelp= to your help request.

Cheers. —cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 01:56, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

List of databases[edit]


I would like to add list of nanotechnology related databases and related softwares to the page. I have the tables (in word form) from our publication The article published under creative commons. It seems the nanotechnology page is semi-protected. I can provide the tables and any of the administrators can verify and add. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sureshbup (talkcontribs) 03:42, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protection should not stop established registered editors such as you from editing. No comment on whether adding the entire table is a good idea (I'm not sure) but I noticed that the OECD entry is a dead link. SpinningSpark 10:13, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
