All around us there are products that have been chemically altered to perform jobs that we take for granted. Many of these products are made from plastics and polymers, which have been scientifically tailored to deliver a specific performance. 

One Australian company producing ground-breaking results in this field is UniQuest start-up company TenasiTech Pty Ltd. From its R&D base in Brisbane, the company is using nanotechnology to fine tune the properties of plastics and polymers to improve their effectiveness in a wide range of end user applications.
