Nanotechnology in Medicine
Nanomedicine is a relatively new field of science and technology. “Nanomedicine” is the science and technology of diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease and traumatic injury, using nanoscale structured materials, drug delivery for cancer treatment by enhancing build-ups of cytotoxicity in tumor tissue, specificity in tumor targeting, reducing the cytotoxic side effects on normal cells, reducing systemic side effect, increasing drug solubility, and inc
Nanocalcite/Calcium Carbonate Nanopowder
Nanocalcite or Calcium carbonate is a chemical compound with the formula CaCO3 formed by three main elements: carbon, oxygen, and calcium. Nanocalcite or Calcium carbonate improves the impact resistance, weather resistance, heat resistance and also the toughness and performance of the material under extreme temperature conditions.
Applications of Nanocalcite
Nanocalcite is widely used in the production of industrial paints and plastics due to its unique c
Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles for Revolutionizing Agriculture
Nanotechnology, which can lead to a new revolution in various fields of applications. The field of nanotechnology has revolutionized almost all the aspects of human life, and their potential applications in industries such as agriculture, biological, biotechnology, mineral nutrition, food processing, reproduction, textiles, cosmetics, engineering, environmental science, medicine, electrical and electronics, pharmaceutical, pharmacology app
Presently agriculture all across the world is facing a wide range of challenges; the important challenges are crop yield stagnation, decrease in arable land due to land degradation and urbanization, low nutrient use efficiency, deficiencies of more than one nutrients in soil, declining soil organic matter, water availability etc. Under these challenges, it would be difficult to produce enough food to feed the ever increasing populations, which is expected to cross 9 billion
MAX Phase Materials
The MAX phases are a new and exciting class of carbides and nitrides that bridge the gap between properties typical of metals and ceramics, while offering fundamentally new directions in tuning the structure and properties of ceramics for emerging applications. Potential applications for the MAX phases include heating elements, gas burner nozzles in corrosive environments, high-temperature bearings, diamond/Ti3SiC2 composites for dry drilling of concrete, examples of very thi
Nanotechnology for Health workers: COVID-19 Control & Prevention
Health workers are at the front line of the COVID-19 outbreak response and as such are exposed to hazards that put them at risk of infection. Hazards include pathogen exposure, long working hours, psychological distress, fatigue, occupational burnout, stigma, and physical and psychological violence.
Based on the available evidence, the COVID-19 virus istransmitted between people through close contact anddroplets, not by air
Silver nanoparticle based organic sanitizer
Hand hygiene is the principal factor in the prevention of nosocomial infections. Onthe other hand, compliance with recommended hand hygiene programs by hospital staff isquite low. In fact, it has been reported that poor hand hygiene is responsible for 40% ofinfections transmitted in hospitals.At present, prevention of nosocomial infections is centeredon rational use of antibiotics and sterilization and disinfection of the hospital environment.
