Water droplets shape graphene nanostructures


Graphene -- A single-atom-thick sheet of carbon, like those seen in pencil marks -- offers great potential for new types of nanoscale devices, if a good way can be found to mold the material into desired shapes. Chemists at the University of Illinois at Chicago say it's possible, reporting that ...


Where do nanomaterials go in the body?


Tiny, engineered nanomaterials can already be found in many consumer products, and have been hailed as having widespread future uses in areas ranging from medicine to industrial processes. However, little is known about what happens if these nanomaterials get into your body – where do they go? NC ...


NIST scientists study how to stack the deck for organic solar power


A new class of economically viable solar power cells - cheap, flexible and easy to make - has come a step closer to reality as a result of recent work at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where scientists have deepened their understanding of the complex organic films at ...


Remote-control closed system invented for inserting radio-active atoms inside fullerenes

The new material will increase control of radiation therapy


Virginia Tech chemistry Professor Harry C. Dorn, Emory and Henry College chemistry Professor James Duchamp, and Panos Fatouros, professor and chair of the Division of Radiation Physics and Biology at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine have co-invented a hands-off process for ...

Building with pentagons


Achim Müller and co-workers from Bielefeld University and Marshall Luban with his co-workers from the Departments of Physics and Astronomy at both Francis Marion University and Iowa State University worked on synthesising a Keplerate using pentagonal tungsten-oxide based units and studied its ...

Fullerenes well trapped


Scientists in Australia and India have shown that a zinc porphyrin-based yoctowell can be used as a fullerene receptor. Sheshanath Bhosale and colleagues from Monash University and a co-worker from North Maharashtra University, have designed a yoctowell cavity (a nanoporous surface modified with ...


Synthesis with a template

Carbon-free fullerene analogue


The discovery of a soccer-ball-shaped molecule made of 60 carbon atoms was a minor revolution in chemistry: Fullerenes are spherical, highly symmetrical molecules made of carbon atoms, and are the third form of carbon after diamond and graphite. However, the C60 "soccer ball" is not the only ...


Nano-C Awarded Fundamental Patents for Carbon Nanotube and Fullerene Manufacturing


Nano-C, Inc., developer of nanostructured carbon materials, announced that it has been issued U.S. Patent Nos. 7,335,344 and 7,396,520 by the Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office. These newly issued patents cover the manufacture of Nano-C’s core products, carbon ...


NSF-funded Rice study will trace path of nanomaterials

Researchers want to know if particles can be transported through food chain


Working to ensure the safe use of nanomaterials is the basis of a new Rice study funded by the National Science Foundation. Led by Pedro Alvarez, the George R. Brown Professor and chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and Vicki Colvin, the Pitzer-Schlumberger Professor of ...


Fullerene size matters

How does the reactivity of metallofullerenes correlate with the size of the cage?


Luis Echegoyen and co-workers at Clemson University, US and Luna Innovations Inc., Danville, Virginia have uncovered the reactivity of the higher trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene cages (TNT EMF). Endohedral metallo fullerenes (EMF) are fullerenes that have metal atoms enclosed ...
