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.
Cost effective nano coating of face masks in the COVID-19 pandemic
Face masks are widely used bymedical workers as part of droplet precautions whencaring for patients with respiratory infections. It wouldbe reasonable to suggest vulnerable individuals avoidcrowded areas and use surgical face masks rationallywhen exposed to high-risk areas.As evidence suggestsCOVID-19 could be transmitted before symptom onset,community transmission might be reduced if everyone,including people who have been infe
What is corona virus?
Coronaviruses are a type of virus. There are many different kinds, and some cause disease. A newly identified type has caused a recent outbreak of respiratory illness now called COVID-19.Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
Nanotechnology in Construction Industry
The latest researches on nanomaterials and nanotechnologies showed the potential use of these materials in deferent fields such as construction, medicine, energy automobile industry, and so on. This is due to the special characteristics of materials at the nano scale. Nanotechnology research and product development are actively conducted in industries that manufacture advanced materials. Building and construction materials sector are one of the main benefi
