In a newly published study, the shape and geometry of nanoparticles can have a significant impact in modulating adverse injection reactions and offer realistic solutions for patients receiving nanopharmaceuticals.
Using pressure instead of chemicals, a team has fabricated nanoparticles into nanowire-array structures similar to those that underlie the surfaces of touch-screens for sensors, computers, phones and TVs.
Culminating a nearly 10 year effort, researchers have determined the atomic resolution structure of a key molecule that translates signals from a cell's local environment into a language that the cell can understand and use.
Photosynthesis requires a mechanism to produce large amounts of chemical energy without losing the oxidative power needed to break down water. A research team has clarified part of this mechanism, marking another step towards the potential development of artificial photosynthesis.
