Graphene Smart Textiles
The Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth century was a breakthrough in the textile sector and another revolution in this sector was the discovery of synthetic fibers at the start of the 20th century. In the 21st century, advancement in textiles have been directed to the development of smart textiles and E-textiles by employing fibers equipped with specific properties, including electrical, thermal, waterproof and other technical characteristics. Several strategies have
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 in-vitro diagnostics, novel biomaterial design, Bioimaging, therapies, and active implants.
AuNPs exhibit unique physicochemical properties including Surface Plasmon resonance (S
Nanotechnology in Sports Equipment
With the ever-growing development of new technologies, sports cannot go together without technology. The sports industry is getting better day by day by leveraging several areas. The sports industry also deals with the 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
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.
