Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are the divas of the nanoworld. In possession of alluring properties, they are also notoriously temperamental compared to their carbon-based cousins. On the plus side, they can withstand incredibly high heat, well over 1,100 degrees Celsius, says Yoke Khin Yap, an associate professor of physics at Michigan Technological University. "Carbon nanotubes would burn like charcoal in a barbecue at half of those temperatures," he says. And the electrical properties of...

Swiss scientists have found a way to fabricate borosilicate glass nanoparticles that are more stable than nanoparticles made of polymers or silica glass. Used in microfluidic systems, the new nanoparticles remain more stable when subjected to temperature fluctuations and harsh chemical environments than currently used nanoparticles, the researchers said. Nanoparticles have generated wide interest as potential transporters of antibodies, drugs or chemicals for use in diagnostic tests or...
