Informationspflichten von Seiten der Landesbehoerden fuer besonders besorgniserregende Stoffe im Rahmen der europaeischen Chemikalienrichtlinie REACH werden momentan nur unzureichend erfuellt. Das geht aus einer Antwort der Bundesregierung auf eine Kleine Anfrage der Fraktion Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen hervor.
Ion bombardment of metal surfaces is an important, but poorly understood, nanomanufacturing technique. New research using sophisticated supercomputer simulations has shown what goes on in trillionths of a second. The advance could lead to better ways to predict the phenomenon and more uses of the technique to make new nanoscale products.
A special feature in this week's issue of the journal Science highlights protein array technology, touching on research conducted by Joshua LaBaer, director of the Biodesign Institute's Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics.
A new study shows that the availability of hydrogen plays a significant role in determining the chemical and structural makeup of graphene oxide, a material that has potential uses in nano-electronics, nano-electromechanical systems, sensing, composites, optics, catalysis and energy storage.
The expert on nanosecurity affairs for the European Commission, Giorgios Katalagarianakis, explained the guidelines which would guide the European projects on nanosecurity from 2013 during the symposium, "Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials", Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials".
2012 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting Announces Call for Papers; Focus is on all areas of Electron Device Technology with extended focus areas in circuit-device interaction, energy-harvesting, biomedical and power devices, magnetics, spintronics.
An international team of scientists in the University of Leicester's Department of Geology has found a solution to a research problem involving fossils right next door - in the University's Chemistry Department.
A new handbook has been published under Empa leadership which aims to unify European standards in nanoparticle research. It contains detailed regulations for the manufacture and analysis of specific nanoparticles in the laboratory environment, placing research work in this field on a unified foundation and enabling valid comparisons to be made between studies.
A new report - Carbon nanotubes: Exposure, toxicology and protective measures in the work environment - has been written on behalf of the Swedish Work Environment Authority by researchers working at Lund University in research collaborations between Metalund and Nano-Safety.
