The 2012 Guinness Book of Records has been published - and we're in it!
The record is for the smallest periodic table.
We engraved the table on a strand of Professor Poliakoff's hair (see video below).
The publishers have put the record in the nanotechnology section!
You can also see our record on the book's website.
I picked up a copy of the book at Heathrow Airport and gave it to The Professor in Australia, where he is on a lecture tour.
He has proudly shown the entry to a few people already and mentions it in some of his presentations!
The engraving was done by experts at the University of Nottingham's Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre using a beam of gallium ions and an electron microscope.
