A special feature in this week's issue of the journal Science highlights protein array technology, touching on research conducted by Joshua LaBaer, director of the Biodesign Institute's Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics.
A new study shows that the availability of hydrogen plays a significant role in determining the chemical and structural makeup of graphene oxide, a material that has potential uses in nano-electronics, nano-electromechanical systems, sensing, composites, optics, catalysis and energy storage.
The expert on nanosecurity affairs for the European Commission, Giorgios Katalagarianakis, explained the guidelines which would guide the European projects on nanosecurity from 2013 during the symposium, "Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials", Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials".
2012 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting Announces Call for Papers; Focus is on all areas of Electron Device Technology with extended focus areas in circuit-device interaction, energy-harvesting, biomedical and power devices, magnetics, spintronics.
An international team of scientists in the University of Leicester's Department of Geology has found a solution to a research problem involving fossils right next door - in the University's Chemistry Department.
A new handbook has been published under Empa leadership which aims to unify European standards in nanoparticle research. It contains detailed regulations for the manufacture and analysis of specific nanoparticles in the laboratory environment, placing research work in this field on a unified foundation and enabling valid comparisons to be made between studies.
A new report - Carbon nanotubes: Exposure, toxicology and protective measures in the work environment - has been written on behalf of the Swedish Work Environment Authority by researchers working at Lund University in research collaborations between Metalund and Nano-Safety.
Francesca Ferlaino's research team at the University of Innsbruck is the first to successfully create a condensate of the exotic element erbium. The Innsbruck experimental physicists hold the world record in attaining the first Bose-Einstein condensates of different chemical elements.
The 6st International Nano-Authorities Dialogue with Government officials from Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland took place on 8./9. May in Zurich. The Swiss Federal Office for the Environment invited representatives of the public authorities dealing with regulatory issues of nanotechnology in health, environment or occupational safety areas.
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) under ultra high vacuum conditions enables the monitoring of organic reactions in solution when carried out in mixtures of reactive ionic liquids, as demonstrated by scientists for a thermally activated alkylation of a nucleophilic amine by a chloroalkyl species.
