Those who have to fight a powerful enemy must look for allies.
If the promise of nanotechnology is to be fulfilled, nanoparticles will have to be able to make something of themselves.
Shape is turning out to be a particularly important feature of some commercially important nanoparticlesâ€”but in subtle ways. New studies* by scientists at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) show that changing the shape of cobalt nanoparticles from spherical to cubic can fundamentally change their behavior.
Virginia Commonwealth University researchers have created highly magnetized nanoparticles based on metallic iron that could one day be used in a non-invasive therapy for cancer in which treatment would begin at the time of detection.
