This new venture will raise awareness and promote developments in nanomaterials for the high performance engineering industry. Members of the HiPerNano group have the opportunity to discuss materials challenges and developments with end-users and industry professionals.
Thousands of scientists from around the world will gather in Philadelphia, PA, August 17-21 to report new discoveries in medicine, energy, environment, food science, and other fields that involve chemistry during the 236th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
In a conventional sewage works, nanoparticles should really be bound in the sludge and should not represent a major problem in the aqueous effluent. This is not true, however, as shown by a new study of the ceramic model material cerium dioxide.
Scientists seeking to protect the soldier of the future can learn a lot from a relic of the past, according to an MIT study of a primitive fish that could point to more effective ways of designing human body armor.
Japanese theorists show that a single beryllium nucleus can briefly resemble a covalently bonded molecule, an ionically bonded molecule, or just a pair of neutral atoms. It all depends on the energy with which two smaller nuclei collide to create the beryllium nucleus.
For years, human growth hormone has been considered one of the main banned substances used by athletes who want to build strength and avoid getting caught. Now a company in Virginia says researchers who originally set out to work on diagnosis and treatment of cancer have developed a test that can find HGH in urine, something one anti-doping expert believes 'could be a quantum leap forward' in the fight against drug use in sports.
Australia's regulatory systems are well placed to respond to the introduction of nanotechnology products. Two documents released this month identify areas for further work and the way the Government will address emerging nanotechnology issues.
