Scientists from Contipro have patented new jet for effective coaxial nanofibers production. (PRWEB) May 30, 2013 Although nanofibres are thousands of times finer than a human hair, with current technology scientists can produce fibres of this size where the inside is made with a different material from the outer coating. However, this success has mainly been limited to laboratory, as the switch to full-scale production has proved to be a very difficult technical problem. Contipro´s...

New Nanofiber Is Tough And Strong
2013-04-24 18:45:28

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Materials engineers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have developed a structural nanofiber that is found to posses both strength and toughness; two qualities that are traditionally mutually exclusive. Findings from their work will be published this week in the April issue of the American Chemical Society's journal, ACS Nano. The materials engineers group made the nanofiber using polyacrilonitrile nanofiber, a synthetic...

The Czech company Contipro developed a laboratory device for producing nanofibers that promises to revolutionize research into the use of nanomaterials. (PRWEB) January 16, 2013 New ambitious project has the potential to change the shape and direction of current research into nano-applications. Contipro´s laboratories have developed 4SPIN®, a device that removes many of the obstacles that have so far hindered advances in the broader application of nanofibers, especially low...

Sulfur Compounds In Petroleum Fuels Have Met Their Nano-structured Match
2012-12-17 16:44:59

University of Illinois University of Illinois researchers developed mats of metal oxide nanofibers that scrub sulfur from petroleum-based fuels much more effectively than traditional materials. Such efficiency could lower costs and improve performance for fuel-based catalysis, advanced energy applications and toxic gas removal. Co-led by Mark Shannon, a professor of mechanical science and engineering at the U. of I. until his death this fall, and chemistry professor Prashant Jain, the...

Promising Nerve Research From Stem Cells Plus Nanofibers
2012-11-07 15:29:57

University of Michigan Health System Researchers coax cells to grow and myelinate along thin fibers, with potential use in testing treatments for neurological diseases Every week in his clinic at the University of Michigan, neurologist Joseph Corey, M.D., Ph.D., treats patients whose nerves are dying or shrinking due to disease or injury. He sees the pain, the loss of ability and the other effects that nerve-destroying conditions cause — and wishes he could give patients more...

Composite Nanofibers Developed, Next Chapter In Orthopaedic Biomaterials

Bioengineered replacements for tendons, ligaments, the meniscus of the knee, and other tissues require re-creation of the exquisite architecture of these tissues in three dimensions. These fibrous, collagen-based tissues located throughout the body have an ordered structure that gives them their robust ability to bear extreme mechanical loading. Many labs have been designing treatments for ACL and meniscus tears of the knee, rotator cuff injuries, and Achilles tendon ruptures for patients...
