Highly charged molecules behave paradoxically

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Thu, 11/23/2017 - 18:53
Chemistry researchers have now discovered how certain small biomolecules attach to one another. The researchers’ study also overturns the standard picture – particles with the same electrical charge appear to be drawn together and not vice versa. The results may be important for the development of new drugs.

Designing lubricant-infused surfaces with the help of predictive models

NanoWerk.com - Thu, 11/23/2017 - 11:14
Liquid-impregnated coating technologies involve nanoscale texturing of a surface, which is then coated with a - usually lubricating - liquid. A lubricant infused surface is comprised of a textured solid surface into which a lubricating fluid is spontaneously wicked. Lubricant infused surfaces can exhibit excellent fluid repellency if designed properly. Scientists now have developed a model to determine which lubricant infused surfaces will work and which will fail based on material properties.

New composite material made of carbon nanotubes

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - Wed, 11/22/2017 - 20:30
Due to their unique properties, carbon nanotubes would be ideal for numerous applications, but to date they cannot be combined adequately with other materials, or they lose their beneficial properties. Scientists have developed an alternative method of combining, so they retain their characteristic properties. As such, they 'felt' the thread-like tubes into a stable 3-D network.

Monitor your UV exposure with an adhesive nanoplasmonic patch

NanoWerk.com - Wed, 11/22/2017 - 17:33
Moderate exposure to sunlight has significant health benefits, however, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation also is a major risk factor for most skin cancers. That means that, while moderate exposure to sunlight is recommended, there is a fine line to walk between beneficial and harmful amounts of UV exposure. To take the guesswork out of assessing the exposure to damaging UV rays, several wearable consumer UV sensors have already hit the market. Researchers have now proposed a simple and low-cost stick-on nanoplasmonic patch made of optically active silver nanoparticles embedded in a film of nanopaper. The patch changes color once it has been exposed to a certain amount of UV light.

Fine felted nanotubes - a new composite material made of carbon nanotubes

NanoWerk.com - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 23:24
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) either cannot be combined adequately with other materials, or if they can be combined, they then lose their beneficial properties. Scientists have now developed an alternative method, with which CNTs can be combined with other materials, so that they retain their characteristic properties.
