Researchers at National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) and King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi have successfully developed a target drug delivery system using folate-conjugated pluronic F127/chitosan core-shell nanoparticles to deliver doxorubicin (DOX) to target cancer cells focusing on breast cancer.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a plaster that accelerates wound healing and is easily removed from the wound at any time. Burn victims in particular may profit from this invention in the future.
Researchers have shown that graphene has two other properties that could have applications in high-speed telecommunications devices and laser technology - population inversion of electrons and broadband optical gain.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently published a Technical Report (TR) that provides guidance on the physicochemical characterization of manufactured nano-objects prior to toxicological assessment.
Inexpensive, portable devices that can rapidly screen cells for leukemia or HIV may soon be possible thanks to a chip that can produce three-dimensional focusing of a stream of cells, according to researchers.
A research group headed by MANA Scientist Dr. Qingmin Ji, in joint research with Prof. Frank Caruso of the University of Melbourne, developed a new elastic capsule using an inorganic nanometer-thickness flake-shaped material.
Researchers of the UPNA-Public University of Navarre have developed a type of coating for construction materials. It is based on nanoparticles that interact with sunlight and trigger a chemical reaction that eliminates certain air pollutants.
The discussion about environmentally friendly regenerative sources of energy and sustainable production and consumption revolves around three aspects of photosynthesis: first, sunlight as an infinite and clean source of energy; second, the conversion and storage of energy in the form of hydrogen and hydrogen-rich carbon compounds; third, the production of food for earth's growing population.
A team of surface scientists has managed to fix single gold atoms on special sites of an iron-oxide surface. This could open the door to more efficient catalysts, requiring less of the precious material.
