A nanofiber strengthening technique is suggested to overcome these two major problems with nanofiber-reinforced clay-based 2D nanofluidics to achieve extremely effective results for osmotic energy applications.
Detailed knowledge of nature’s smallest biological building elements—biomolecules—is essential to generating new medications and vaccinations. Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have developed a revolutionary microscopy approach that allows proteins, DNA, and other small biological particles to be investigated in their natural conditions in an entirely new way.
A novel approach to enhancing the thermal conductivity of nanofluids for energy-based applications is discussed in a new paper.
Researchers prepared carbon-based nanofluids (CbNFs) by using a two-step method and determined their thermal conductivity (?) and diffusivity (a). These CbNFs were said to significantly enhance the characteristics of the base working fluids.
New research focuses on creating sustainable superhydrophobic coating materials using nanofluids based on easily accessible materials like silica (SiO2) nanoparticles.
