Magnetic nanoparticles with ionic liquids for water purification

Providing Safe, Clean Water

03-Dec-2019

In many parts of the world, access to clean drinking water is far from certain. Filtration of large volumes of water, however, is slow and impractical. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have introduced a new water purification method based on magnetic nanoparticles coated with a ...

Eco-friendly method for the synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles

Producing nanomaterials from plant extracts

17-Sep-2019

A team of scientists from Ural Federal University (Yekaterinburg), Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and other collaborator have published an article about a new method for the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles. Today nanoparticles are used in various fields, from biomedicine ...

Particles pull last drops of oil from well water

Nanoscale solution to ‘produced water’ problem

17-Aug-2018

Oil and water tend to separate, but they mix well enough to form stable oil-in-water emulsions in produced water from oil reservoirs to become a problem. Rice University scientists have developed a nanoparticle-based solution that reliably removes more than 99 percent of the emulsified oil that ...

Multiresponsive nanosurfactant constructs tiny chemical factory

12-Jan-2018

When people hear of surfactants, they normally think of a static chemical compound used to stabilize droplets in the manufacture of soaps, detergents, or paints. Research has shown that active forms of surfactants can respond to individual external stimuli, but what if it could interact with more ...

Assembly of nanoparticles proceeds like a zipper

26-Sep-2017

It has always been the Holy Grail of materials science to describe and control the material's structure-function relationship. Nanoparticles are an attractive class of components to be used in functional materials because they exhibit size-dependent properties, such as superparamagnetism and ...

Magnetic nanoparticle chains offer new technique for controlling soft robots

22-Dec-2015

esearchers from North Carolina State University have developed a technique for using chains of magnetic nanoparticles to manipulate elastic polymers in three dimensions, which could be used to remotely control new "soft robots." The ability to control the motion of soft robots, coupled with their ...

Putting a new spin on plasmonics

Researchers at Aalto University have discovered a novel way of combining plasmonic and magneto-optical effects

13-May-2015

Researchers at Finland's Aalto University have discovered a novel way of combining plasmonic and magneto-optical effects. They experimentally demonstrated that patterning of magnetic materials into arrays of nanoscale dots can lead to a very strong and highly controllable modification of the ...

Magnetic nanoparticles could aid heat dissipation

22-Nov-2013

Cooling systems generally rely on water pumped through pipes to remove unwanted heat. Now, researchers at MIT and in Australia have found a way of enhancing heat transfer in such systems by using magnetic fields, a method that could prevent hotspots that can lead to system failures. The system ...

Mixing nanoparticles to make multifunctional materials

Standardized technique opens remarkable opportunities for 'mix and match' materials fabrication

22-Oct-2013

NY-Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a general approach for combining different types of nanoparticles to produce large-scale composite materials. The technique, described in a paper published online by Nature Nanotechnology, opens many ...
