Developments in Bullet Proof Materials using Nanotechnology

It's hard to imagine the number of lives that have been saved thanks to bulletproof materials. Soldiers, police and others who put themselves in harm's way can depend on Kevlar and other fabrics to spread the impact of projectiles and allow them to perform their jobs in relative safety. Now, scientists from Rice University have used microbullets to analyse graphene’s strength in these applications [More]
Effective Dispersion of Graphene and Graphene Oxide – An Introduction to Haydale’s Plasma Processing Technology

Effective Dispersion of Graphene and Graphene Oxide – An Introduction to Haydale’s Plasma Processing Technology

There are problems with producing effective nanocomposites with graphene materials. Initially, the exfoliation process needs to be optimized to produce high quality graphene flakes with reasonable lateral dimensions. These flakes then need to be dispersed evenly through the matrix material, without agglomeration. [More]
Producing Unstainable T-Shirts with the Help of Nanotechnology

Producing Unstainable T-Shirts with the Help of Nanotechnology

The wettability of materials is characterized based on the contact angle between a droplet of water and the surface it has settled on. The lower this angle is, the more wettable, or hydrophilic, a material is said to be. [More]
