  • Merck Ignites Firework of Research Initiatives During its 350th Anniversary Year

    Merck announced several research grants and challenges during the company’s 350th anniversary year in addition to already existing initiatives. The new research grants and challenges are mainly directed to scientists working in institutes, universities or start-up companies around the world. “The be more

  • Individual impurity atoms detectable in graphene

    A team including physicists from the University of Basel has succeeded in using atomic force microscopy to clearly obtain images of individual impurity atoms in graphene ribbons. Thanks to the forces measured in the graphene’s two-dimensional carbon lattice, they were able to identify boron and nitr more

  • How to control liquid crystal patterns

    When Lisa Tran set out to investigate patterns in liquid crystals, she didn't know what to expect. When she first looked through the microscope, she saw dancing iridescent spheres with fingerprint-like patterns etched into them that spiraled and flattened as the solution they were floated in changed more

  • Towards nanomedicine

    Diamond nanoparticles or nanodiamonds (NDs) behave several essential assets for biomedical applications: their very weak cytotoxicity and genotoxicity [1], their carbon-related surface chemistry for covalent functionalization of targeting or labeling moieties (oligonucleotides, proteins, fluorescent dyes, peptidic nucleic acids [2],…) and their tunable surface charge toward drug delivery [3]. In particular, detonation nanodiamonds synthetized by explosion [4] combine all this possibilities in a primary size of 5 nm, compatible with kidney filtration for an expected easier elimination. Nevertheless, these NDs are extremely sensitive to their surface state. more
