Latest Nanoparticle Stories
To learn how biological molecules like proteins function, scientists must first understand their structures. Almost as important is understanding how the structures change, as molecules in the native state do their jobs.
A recent study from Stony Brook University examines the presence and effects of gold nanoparticles that are found in everyday items, most notably cosmetics. Dr.
A special type of nanoparticle created using natural lipids derived from grapefruit could be used as a less toxic way to deliver cancer-fighting medication, antibodies such as proteins, and other substances to patients, according to research published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.
University of Illinois researchers have developed a new way to produce highly uniform nanocrystals used for both fundamental and applied nanotechnology projects.
In recent years, metal nanoparticles have showed great application prospect in the field of biological imaging, cancer diagnosis and treatment due to its unique optical scattering and optical absorption properties.
Stockholm, Apr 26, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Nanoparticles are currently used in commercial products ranging from catalysts, polishing media and magnetic fluids to cosmetics and sunscreens.
The macroscopic effects of certain nanoparticles on human health have long been clear to the naked eye. What scientists have lacked is the ability to see the detailed movements of individual particles that give rise to those effects.
New research from the University of Southampton has found that working or traveling on an underground railway for a sustained period of time could have health implications.
