Paradoxical replacement tissue for medicine

A material that thickens when you pull on it seems to contradict the laws of physics. However, the so-called auxetic effect is interesting for a number of applications. A new study shows how this amazing behavior can be improved - and even used to treat injuries and tissue damage.

Towards high quality ZnO quantum dots prospective for biomedical applications

Scientists have moved a step closer to creating stable, high quality colloidal zinc oxide quantum dots (ZnO QDs) for use in modern technologies and nanomedicine. Using advanced DNP-enhanced NMR spectroscopy they have clearly proved the superiority of the developed organometallic approach over the traditional sol-gel procedure both in terms of stability and the highly-ordered organic shell of the resulting ZnO QDs.

Magnetic nanoparticles for water purification

Scientists have introduced a new water purification method based on magnetic nanoparticles coated with a so-called 'ionic liquid' that simultaneously remove organic, inorganic, and microbial contaminants, as well as microplastics. The nanoparticles are then easily removed with magnets.
