Nanowerk, a leading nanotechnology information portal and home of the unique Nanomaterial Database, launched a new service that offers custom sourcing for nanomaterials as well as discounts on carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and other nanoparticles from suppliers worldwide.
Controlling the movement of electrons through individual molecules could allow for the development of new technologies such as small-scale circuits to be used for a variety of applications including improved solar cells.
The promise of regenerative medicine and the nanotechnology catapulting it into the forefront of chemistry are highlighted in two papers being presented on Monday, Sept. 11, in San Francisco during the American Chemical Society's 232nd national meeting.
A major limitation that investigators still must overcome to fully realize nanoparticles for anticancer applications is the propensity for immune cells such as macrophages to engulf and eliminate nanoparticles circulating in the bloodstream.
Researchers have made a discovery about the behavior of tiny structures called nanocantilevers that could be crucial in designing a new class of ultra-small sensors for detecting viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.
New research results suggest that for cancer patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common malignant brain tumor in adults, synthetic LDL-like nanoparticles could prove to be the vehicle of choice for delivering potent anticancer drugs to tumor cells while sparing healthy neighboring cells.
