Process could be useful for applications in manufacturing and architecture UCLA mechanical engineers and materials scientists have developed a process that uses nanoparticles to strengthen the atomic structure of glass. The result is a product that’s at least five times … Continue reading →
Targeted medicine deliveries and increased energy efficiency are just two of many ways Nanoscience research involves molecules that are only 1/100th the size of cancer cells and that have the potential to profoundly improve the quality of our health and … Continue reading →
Berkeley Lab Scientists Answer Questions of How Charged Ligands Balance on Surface of Colloidal Nanoparticles Danylo Zherebetskyy and his colleagues at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) found unexpected traces of water in semiconducting nanocrystals.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a way to melt or “weld” specific portions of polymers by embedding aligned nanoparticles within the materials. Their technique, which melts fibers along a chosen direction within a material, may lead to … Continue reading →
New research from North Carolina State University finds that gold nanoparticles with a slight positive charge work collectively to unravel DNA’s double helix. This finding has ramifications for gene therapy research and the emerging field of DNA-based electronics. “We began … Continue reading →
Chemistry team discovers new catalyst A chemistry team at the University of Toronto has discovered environmentally-friendly iron-based nanoparticle catalysts that work as well as the expensive, toxic, metal-based catalysts that are currently in wide use by the drug, fragrance and … Continue reading →
*Golden Membranes Pave the Way for a Better Understanding of Cancer and the Immune System* Football has often been called “a game of inches,” but biology is a game of nanometers, where spatial differences of only a few nanometers can … Continue reading →
