Latest carbon nanotubes Stories
Team of more than 20 researchers directed white blood cells containing the oxidizing enzyme â€œmyeloperoxidaseâ€ to attack nanotubes, reducing their unhealthful effects and prompting natural biodegradation, says report in â€œNature Nanotechnology.â€
A team of Swedish and American scientists has shown for the first time that carbon nanotubes can be broken down by an enzyme - myeloperoxidase (MPO) - found in white blood cells.
A closer look at a promising nanotube coating that might one day improve solar cells has turned up a few unexpected wrinkles, according to new research conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and North Dakota State University (NDSU)â€”research that also may help scientists iron out a solution.
Current body protheses do not last more than 10-15 years. After this time, the operation has to be repeated in order to change prothesis.
Phase transitions â€“ changes of matter from one state to another without altering its chemical makeup â€“ are an important part of life in our three-dimensional world.
Dry printing of nanotube patterns to any surface could revolutionize microelectronics and more.
DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Cromoz Inc., located in Research Triangle Park, will initiate water-soluble carbon nanotube-based cancer drug delivery system in Hyderabad, India.
Most people would like to be able to charge their cell phones and other personal electronics quickly and not too often. A recent discovery made by UC San Diego engineers could lead to carbon nanotube-based supercapacitors that could do just this.
Rice University scientists yesterday unveiled a method for the industrial-scale processing of pure carbon-nanotube fibers that could lead to revolutionary advances in materials science, power distribution and nanoelectronics.
Researchers have overcome a major obstacle in efforts to use tiny structures called carbon nanotubes to create a new class of electronics that would be faster and smaller than conventional silicon-based transistors.
