Researchers have found that a lipid nanocarrier engineered to be small enough to get past the blood-brain barrier could be targeted to deliver a chemotherapeutic drug more efficiently to tumor cells in the brain.
Physicists have produced the first rewriteable artificial magnetic charge ice. The research shows strong potential for technological applications from information encoding, reprogrammable magnonics, and also to spintronics.
New research has revealed a way to reduce the energy demand in one key step of plastic manufacturing by using a class of materials that can filter impurities more efficiently than the conventional manufacturing process.
A method to produce significant amounts of semiconducting nanoparticles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical applications has gained momentum with a demonstration by researchers.
Researchers have created a new material, called 'rewritable magnetic charge ice', that permits an unprecedented degree of control over local magnetic fields and could pave the way for new computing technologies.
The new research reveals how glycerol prevents ice crystals from forming in water as the solution is cooled to -35C, with important implications for improving cryoprotectants used in fertility treatments and food storage.
