Ultrabright Fluorescent Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles
Carbon nanotubes have the potential to unlock effective treatments for that most delicate of systems – the mammalian central nervous system. But conflicting studies and reports on potential toxicity underline the need for careful, standardized, and thorough research protocols.
New publication brings together theory and experimental results in molecular electronics – can we go beyond Moore’s law? Emanuele Orgiu & Paolo Samorì of ISIS tell us more
One-dimensional nanostructures like nanowires, nanobelts, and nanotubes attract considerable interest. However, common techniques to separate the nanostructures from the template can cause the structures to collapse.
Scientists at Institute of Plasma Physics, CAS, have developed a way to modify multiwalled carbon nanotubes to enhance their dispersion properties and adsorption capacities
Light-triggered myosin allows real-time study of cells
Merging the ultra-strong nature of carbon nanotubes and mussel-inspired linker molecules renders high-strength fibres via a simple spinning process.
Tetrahedral constructs of DNA are a new way to support proteins on functional nanostructures, according to work by U.S. scientists.
The self-assembly of block polymers raises this question, discussed in the latest Trend Article in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics.
Very small organic thin-film transistors with high operating frequencies have been produced by Japanese and German scientists.
