General Approach for Mixing Nanoparticles to Fabricate Multifunctional Materials

General Approach for Mixing Nanoparticles to Fabricate Multifunctional Materials

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a general approach for combining different types of nanoparticles to produce large-scale composite materials. The technique, described in a paper published online by Nature Nanotechnology on October 20, 2013, opens many opportunities for mixing and matching particles with different magnetic, optical, or chemical properties to form new, multifunctional materials or materials with enhanced performance for a wide range of potential applications.

Quantum Dots within Thermoelectric Material Increase Heat-to-Energy Conversion

Quantum Dots within Thermoelectric Material Increase Heat-to-Energy Conversion

High-performance thermoelectric materials that convert waste heat to electricity could one day be a source of more sustainable power. But they need to be a lot more efficient before they could be effective on a broad scale in places like power plants or military bases, researchers say. [More]
Water-Loving, Jelly-Like Materials may Help Test Biological Effects of Nanoparticles

Water-Loving, Jelly-Like Materials may Help Test Biological Effects of Nanoparticles

A class of water-loving, jelly-like materials with uses ranges ranging from the mundane, such as superabsorbent diaper liners, to the sophisticated, such as soft contact lenses, could be tapped for a new line of serious work: testing the biological effects of nanoparticles now being eyed for a large variety of uses.

Nanotechnology Enables Safe Delivery of Reformulated TNF-alpha to Cancer Cells

Nanotechnology Enables Safe Delivery of Reformulated TNF-alpha to Cancer Cells

The protein tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is a powerful weapon in the arsenal to control cancer. Unfortunately, as is the case with many potent cancer therapies, the use of TNF-alpha as an anti-cancer therapy has been severely limited. “It was so toxic that it caused death,” and researchers gave up on it, explains Scott McNeil, director of the Nanotechnology Characterization Lab at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research.
