Scientists succeeded in the production of a new type of nano adsorbents that can eliminate mercury from polluted environments. They came up with the invention by modifying the structure of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles.
Researchers successfully modified a glassy carbon electrode with multi-walled carbon nanotubes to obtain an efficient catalyst for the oxidation reaction of sulfaguanidine as well as its detection within environmental samples.
Researchers have developed a glassy carbon electrode modified with a nanocomposite comprised of multi-walled carbon nanotubes which enables low concentration detection of ethanol in different environments.
University of Arkansas physicists and their colleagues have determined important information about the nanoscale properties of materials called relaxors, which can be used in electronic devices to change temperature or shape. The discoveries may help maximize efficient use of relaxors to create better medical ultrasound, sensors and heart implants.
By blending optical and atomic force microscope technologies, Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory researchers have found a way to complete 3-D measurements of single biological molecules with unprecedented accuracy and precision.
Researchers report the first structural study on the atomistic processes of a ligand-exchange reaction of a well-defined gold nanoparticle that has 102 gold atoms and 44 ligand sites in the molecular overlayer.
BASF SE, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), and TU Darmstadt are pleased with the results of the first phase of the joint research project "Nanostructuring and plastic electronics print platform" (NanoPEP) and have agreed to continue their joint work.
Scientists from A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) will partner companies to develop, prototype and conduct pilot large scale manufacturing of nanoimprinted materials with better performance and at potentially lower cost than current production methods.
Researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology have used three-dimensional single-particle tracking to measure the dynamic behavior of individual nanoparticles adsorbed at the surface of micrometer-scale oil droplets in water.
