Speeding food safety tests to deliver fresher products

05-06-2014

A research team led by food scientist Sam Nugen at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently received a $495,950 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to improve food safety by developing faster methods for detecting and ...

Illinois researchers combine weak chemical forces to strengthen novel imaging technology

A new nanoparticle design, inspired by cell membranes, has led to clearer MRI images and paved the way for better diagnostic tools

26-05-2014

When University of Illinois Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Hyunjoon Kong, graduate student Cartney Smith, and colleagues set out to improve MR imaging (MRI), they turned current contrast agent technology on its head —or rather, they turned it inside out. The new ...

The world's smallest, fastest nanomotor

22-05-2014

Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have built the smallest, fastest and longest-running tiny synthetic motor to date. The team's nanomotor is an important step toward developing miniature machines that could one day move through the body to ...

Multifunctional nanoparticles for cheaper, cleaner biofuel

14-05-2014

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory has created a faster, cleaner biofuel refining technology that not only combines processes, it uses widely available materials to reduce costs. Ames Laboratory scientists have developed a nanoparticle that is able to perform two processing functions ...

Antimicrobial edible films inhibit pathogens in meat

06-05-2014

Antimicrobial agents incorporated into edible films applied to foods to seal in flavor, freshness and color can improve the microbiological safety of meats, according to researchers in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. Using films made of pullulan -- an edible, mostly tasteless, ...

Self-assembled superlattices create molecular machines with 'hinges' and 'gears'

08-04-2014

A combined computational and experimental study of self-assembled silver-based structures known as superlattices has revealed an unusual and unexpected behavior: arrays of gear-like molecular-scale machines that rotate in unison when pressure is applied to them. Computational and experimental ...

Big step for next-generation fuel cells and electrolyzers

Researchers at Berkeley and Argonne National Labs discover highly promising new class of nanocatalyst

03-03-2014

A big step in the development of next-generation fuel cells and water-alkali electrolyzers has been achieved with the discovery of a new class of bimetallic nanocatalysts that are an order of magnitude higher in activity than the target set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for 2017. The new ...

Pinwheel 'living' crystals and the origin of life

26-02-2014

Simply making nanoparticles spin coaxes them to arrange themselves into what University of Michigan researchers call 'living rotating crystals' that could serve as a nanopump. They may also, incidentally, shed light on the origin of life itself. The researchers refer to the crystals as 'living' ...

Microanalysis technique makes the most of small nanoparticle samples

26-02-2014

Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have demonstrated that they can make sensitive chemical analyses of minute samples of nanoparticles by, essentially, roasting them on top of a quartz crystal. The NIST-developed ...

Nanotracer tester tells about wells

Rice University lab builds rig to evaluate oil, gas wells in fracturing operations

26-02-2014

A tabletop device invented at Rice University can tell how efficiently a nanoparticle would travel through a well and may provide a wealth of information for oil and gas producers. The device gathers data on how tracers – microscopic particles that can be pumped into and recovered from wells – ...
