Researchers in Japan have succeeded in developing an aligned and highly densely packed carbon nanotubes material that retains the excellent physical and chemical properties of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes.
A new report summarizes the contents of an event entitled "NIA Masterclass & Workshop: REACH for Nanomaterials", held in London on May 9, 2007. The event discussed the implications of the new European law on chemicals - REACH - for nanomaterials.
Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a hallmark effect triggered by effective anticancer drugs. Now, researchers have developed a biocompatible, fluorescent nanoparticle that could provide an early sign that apoptosis is occurring as a result of anticancer therapy.
An initiative to develop a "Responsible NanoCode" for businesses working with nanotechnologies has been launched by the Royal Society, Insight Investment, the Nanotechnology Industries Association and the Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network today.
