The premier issue of NANO360, the only newsletter dedicated to global developments in nanotechnology from renewable and sustainable materials, has been launched by TAPPI. NANO360, the official newsletter of TAPPI's International Nanotechnology Division, will cover news, resources, research, and technology of nanocellulose and other renewable materials.
A group or researchers has devised and demonstrated a highly unusual, compact, and relatively inexpensive x-ray source for an imaging system that may soon be employed to produce the kind of 'molecular movies' that scientists and engineers need.
Researchers of the University of Würzburg are significantly involved in the new European collaborative project POCAONTAS. They intend to develop novel materials for photovoltaics from carbon nanotubes. The project is funded by the European Union with EUR 3.5 million.
Researchers succeeded in the production of particles with smaller size but higher surface area, and consequently more number of active sites, to adsorb pollutants by synthesizing cerium oxide-titanium dioxide nanoparticles and obtaining cerium oxide-titanium dioxide nanocomposite.
Controlling and modifying at will the transparency, electrical properties, and stiffness of a gel - such are the promises of a new discovery by researchers. This marks an important step for materials used in healthcare, high-tech, and the cosmetics industry.
Researchers from Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory have developed a straightforward and generalizable process for making reactant-selective oxide catalysts by encapsulating the particles in a sieve-like film that blocks unwanted reactants.
