Berkeley Lab's SINGLE provides images of individual nanoparticles in solution
Just as proteins are one of the basic building blocks of biology, nanoparticles can serve as the basic building blocks for next generation materials. In keeping with this parallel between biology and nanotechnology, a proven technique for determining the three dimensional structures of individual ...
North Carolina State University researchers have developed an effective and environmentally benign method to combat bacteria by engineering nanoscale particles that add the antimicrobial potency of silver to a core of lignin, a ubiquitous substance found in all plant cells. The findings introduce ...
Byproduct of research may lead to new way to irradiate cancer with gold-bonded isotopes
Chemists at Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences, collaborating with PerkinElmer and UCL (University College London), have witnessed atoms of one chemical element morph into another for the first time ever - a feat that produced an unexpected outcome that could lead to a new way to ...
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a fast, simple process for making platinum 'nano-raspberries' - microscopic clusters of nanoscale particles of the precious metal. The berry-like shape is significant because it has a high surface area, which ...
Scientist Recognized for Study of Agricultural Applications of Nanotechnology and Environmental Impact
Agilent Technologies Inc.announced that Dr. Arturo Keller has received an Agilent Thought Leader Award in support of his research on the use of nanoparticles in agriculture and the environmental consequences.Dr. Keller, who directs the Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology ...
A team of scientists at Virginia Commonwealth University has synthesized a powerful new magnetic material that could reduce the dependence of the United States and other nations on rare earth elements produced by China. "The discovery opens the pathway to systematically improving the new material ...
New approach to designing ordered composite materials for possible energy applications
Taking child's play with building blocks to a whole new level-the nanometer scale-scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have constructed 3D "superlattice" multicomponent nanoparticle arrays where the arrangement of particles is driven by the shape of ...
Rice-led study shows how particles quench damaging superoxides
Injectable nanoparticles that could protect an injured person from further damage due to oxidative stress have proven to be astoundingly effective in tests to study their mechanism.Scientists at Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas Health Science Center at ...
UMass Amherst team invents a way to create versatile, water-soluble nano-modules
A team of materials chemists, polymer scientists, device physicists and others at the University of Massachusetts Amherst report a breakthrough technique for controlling molecular assembly of nanoparticles over multiple length scales that should allow faster, cheaper, more ecologically friendly ...
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 ...
