Nanoparticles - 4 News by Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
Novel approach towards nanomaterials developed
During this process, the team discovered an intriguing phenomenon
26-Sep-2023 - Scientists from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, both Germany, have successfully developed nanomaterials using a so-called bottom-up approach. As reported in the scientific journal ACS Nano, they exploit the fact that crystals often ...
Cleaning water with ‘smart rust’ and magnets
New method for pollutants such as crude oil, glyphosate, microplastics and hormones
22-Aug-2023 - Pouring flecks of rust into water usually makes it dirtier. But researchers of FAU have developed special iron oxide nanoparticles they call “smart rust” that actually makes it cleaner. Smart rust can attract many substances, including oil, nano- and microplastics, as well as the herbicide ...
Using magnetic microparticles to mark objects unambiguously and tackle counterfeiting
‘Smart rust is cheap to make and ecologically sound’
10-Jun-2021 - We can only guarantee that objects are manufactured in an environmentally friendly, socially sustainable way and recycled correctly if all raw materials and intermediate products are marked unambiguously using a tamper-proof method. The current optical (barcode) and electromagnetic (RFID chip) ...
How nanoparticles give electrons away
16-Dec-2015 - Whether it is in catalytic processes in the chemical industry, environmental catalysis, new types of solar cells or new electronic components, nanoparticles are everywhere in modern production and environmental technologies, where their unique properties ensure efficiency and save resources. The ...
