Gold Nanoparticles for Cancer Treatment
Nanotechnologies can be defined as the design, characterization, production and application of structures, devices and systems by controlling shape and size at a nanometer scale. In medicine, most interest is in the use of nanoparticles to enhance drug delivery with interest also invitro diagnostics, novel biomaterial design, Bioimaging, therapies and active implants.
AuNPs exhibit unique physicochemical properties including Surface Plasmon resonance (SPR)
Nanotechnology in Sports Equipment
With the ever growing development of new technologies, sports cannot go together without technology. Sports industry is getting better day by day by leveraging several areas. Sports industry also deals with smallest things called ‘Nanotechnology’ across the globe.
Nano Technology: This is the technology and science that deals with the material creation at the molecular level and it can be sprawled into different fields to reinforce them with it
Nanocomposites are composites in which at least one of the phases shows dimensions in the nanometer range. These are high performance materials that exhibit unusual property combinations and unique design possibilities and are thought of as the materials of the 21st century. With an estimated annual growth rate of about 25% and huge demand for engineering polymers, their potential is so promising that they are useful in several applications ranging from packaging to bio-me
Nanotechnology in Agriculture
Technical innovation in agriculture is of extreme importance, in particular to address global challenges such as population growth, climate change and the limited availability of important plant nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium. Nanotechnology applied to agricultural production could play a fundamental role for this purpose and research on agricultural applications is ongoing for largely a decade by now. The application of nanomaterials in agricultu
Graphene Flexible Electronics
Recent advances in ultrathin electronic devices have broadened the scope of flexible/stretchable electronics from flexible circuits, foldable displays and flexible energy harvesting/storage devices to the advanced stretchable and wearable biomedical devices that can integrate with the complex curved geometries to closely monitor and record the var
Nanoparticles in cosmetics
Eventually, nanotechnology may help us reverse aging at a cellular level. Until that day comes, we’ll have to be content with the ways that nanotechnology is being used in cosmetics to keep our skin more youthful and provide protection from harmful sunlight. The applications of nanotechnology and nanomaterials can be found in many cosmetic products including moisturizers, hair care products, make up and sunscreen. A report from Observatory Nano (this repor
Aluminum Foam for Automotive Application
Modern automobiles call for several advanced features such as energy efficient crash safe structures, efficient thermal management system, silent ride and reduced vibration. Aluminium foams not only have high energy absorption and sound absorption characteristics, but are also light weight. Inclusion of aluminium foams into automotive structures increases the levels of density compensated design indices such as bending stiffness, bending strength,
