Scientists devised a novel method of tracking certain molecules inside live cells. This method uses graphene oxide or thin sheet of carbon. The sheets are decorated with apatmers, a specialized molecule that has a strong affinity for its molecular target.
NANOTEC researchers participated as speakers during the visit of science journalist from 8 European nations. The visit is organized under the umbrella of the FP7 funded SEA-EU-NET project, in which NSTDA is a partner, and the ASEAN-EU Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2012.
Scientists in China and Germany are working together to look very closely at how complex molecular assemblies work, and how they can be improved and harnessed to manufacture better and more efficient tools for people around the world.
Astronomers using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have, for the first time, discovered buckyballs in a solid form in space. Prior to this discovery, the microscopic carbon spheres had been found only in gas form in the cosmos.
To correlate TiO2 surface features with ET, scientists compared the photoinduced ET dynamics from single quantum dots (QDs) to polycrystalline TiO2 thin films grown by atomic layer deposition with that of porous TiO2 nanoparticle films by using single-particle fluorescence spectroscopy.
Radiological Technologies University would like to present Dr. Renat Letfullin as he hosts his "Introduction to Nanomedicine" webinar. The goal for these webinars is to build awareness about the revolutionary possibilities that nanotechnology holds for the field of medicine.
