A research review published in the July issue of the journal Nature Materials provides a comprehensive overview of current knowledge on the physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials that allow them to undergo interactions with biological molecules and bioprocesses.
When it comes to regulating nanotechnology a new study led by professors Dietram Scheufele at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Elizabeth Corley at Arizona State University reveals that the views of U.S. nanoscientists differ from those of the general public.
Scientists from Singapore A*STAR?s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in France, are working on nanotechnology that can create significant potential impact, such as the creation of chips with computing power a million times greater than existing technology.
Anatoly Chubais, Director General of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies, and Toshihiro Nikai, Japan's Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, have agreed to establish a workgroup for cooperation in the field of nanotechnology.
Researchers from the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Wako, in collaboration with colleagues from Toho University, Japan, have discovered an organic compound that exhibits a rare feature: the compound?s electrons behave like particles without mass, so they do not obey Newton?s second law of motion.
The scenarios described in the book suggest that the development and deployment of new technologies coupled with close international climate co-operation could enable us to mitigate climate change, but success will be dependent on renewal of the entire energy system by the year 2050.
A team of researchers led by Wolfgang Tremel at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz have now developed a new technique for producing tin disulfide nanotubes. According to the report published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the scientists have found a way of growing SnS2 tubules from a metal droplet.
Die Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft betreibt seit 60 Jahren angewandte Forschung. Doch was ist der Ertrag dieser Arbeit? Anhand von einigen ausgewählten Beispielen zeigt das Buch "MP3, LEDS und Co." in welchen Produkten, Verfahren und Dienstleistungen Fraunhofer-Know-how steckt.
A more effective way to build plastic scaffolds on which new tissues and even whole organs might be grown in the laboratory is being developed by an international collaboration between teams in Portugal and the UK.
The NanoCare Project has gained new knowledge about the effects of nanomaterials on health and on the environment. Dr. Peter Nagler, head of Innovation Management for Evonik?s Chemistry Business Area, said that the project, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, would immensely help create a broad basis for safe and responsible nanotechnology development.
