Bio Nano Conjugation

Bio Nano Conjugation is a chemical strategy to form a stable covalent link between two molecules, at least one of which is a biomolecule. Proteins and other biopolymers regulate and perform biological functions by binding to ligands. “Novel functional bio-materials make possible transformative new opportunities to impact society in a beneficial way.” The ability to create functional biomolecules through bioconjugation has affected every...

Carbon Nanotubes Dispersion (CNT)

CNT DISPERSIONS Carbon nanotubes dispersion are strong and flexible but very cohesive. They are difficult to disperse into liquids, such as water, ethanol, oil, polymer or epoxy resin. Carbonnanotubes (CNT) are used in adhesives, coatings and polymers and as electrically conductive fillers in plastics to dissipate static charges in electrical equipment and in electrostatically paintable automobile body panels. By the use of nanotubes, polymers can...
