Circularly Polarized Light Enables Chiral Templating of Self-Assembling Nanostructures

Circularly Polarized Light Enables Chiral Templating of Self-Assembling Nanostructures

As hands come in left and right versions that are mirror images of each other, so do the amino acids and sugars within us. But unlike hands, only the left-oriented amino acids and the right-oriented sugars ever make into life as we know it. [More]
Silver Nanowire Ink Printed on Paper to Create Flexible Electronic Sensors

Silver Nanowire Ink Printed on Paper to Create Flexible Electronic Sensors

Flexible electronic sensors based on paper -- an inexpensive material -- have the potential to some day cut the price of a wide range of medical tools, from helpful robots to diagnostic tests. Scientists have now developed a fast, low-cost way of making these sensors by directly printing conductive ink on paper. They published their advance in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. [More]

Novel Nanoparticles Can Simultaneously Perform MRI and Fluorescent Imaging in Living Animals

Novel Nanoparticles Can Simultaneously Perform MRI and Fluorescent Imaging in Living Animals

MIT chemists have developed new nanoparticles that can simultaneously perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorescent imaging in living animals. Such particles could help scientists to track specific molecules produced in the body, monitor a tumor’s environment, or determine whether drugs have successfully reached their targets. [More]
