Researchers at the UAB have designed minimalist biostructures that imitate natural enzymes, capable of carrying out two differentiated and reversibly regulated activities thanks to a unique combination of structural and functional properties. The strategy used opens the door to the creation of "intelligent" nanomaterials with tailor-made combinations of catalytic functions.
Several researchers have strangely tried to place very small diamonds within living cells. This is because nanodiamonds are constantly bright and can offer a better understanding of the inner life of cells over a long period.
A new study has demonstrated that an innovative electrospun nanofibrous air filtration system may be invaluable for improving personal protective equipment and indoor air filtration systems. This could help to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The research was published on the medRxiv* preprint server.
An international team of researchers has developed a new nanomaterial from the silk produced by the Tetranychus lintearius mite. This nanomaterial has the ability to penetrate human cells without damaging them and, therefore, has "promising biomedical properties".
Researchers have identified the physical mechanism that allows gold nanoparticles to effectively kill bacteria. The finding could lead to wider applications in the medical field.
Scientists from the Adolphe Merkle Institute and the Department of Biology of the University of Fribourg have identified how some silica nanoparticles could serve as a degradable, traceless and highly efficient treatment against certain plant pathogens.
In 2020, every individual in the world is generating around 1.7 MB of data each second, and that data amounts to 418 zettabytes, or 418 billion one-terabyte hard drives, in just a single year.
A COVID-19 vaccine?—?or two?—?is just around the corner, bringing with it the possibility of a return to normalcy for many people. These medical interventions use nanotechnology to mimic nature’s own method of slipping past the immune system to deliver treatment to target cells.
Researchers from Aalto University have used bacteria to create intricately developed three-dimensional objects made of nanocellulose.
A group of scientists from the University of Liverpool has revealed new possibilities for the upcoming development of clean, sustainable bioenergy.
