According to a recent study published on November 24th, 2022 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, scientists at the University of Pittsburgh have created cancer-fighting nanoparticles that deliver both a novel immunotherapy and a chemotherapy drug.
Over the years, researchers have tried hard to comprehend topographic signals that promote cell mechanical sensitive responses. The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides a complex cellular microenvironment that controls cellular behavior.
High growth nanomaterials developer Quantum Science is set to share its expert insights into quantum dot (QD) technology at the Innovation Leaders Summit in Tokyo, Japan.
The unrestricted use of synthetic fertilizers in agricultural fields is largely responsible for global warming and biodiversity degradation. Therefore, the agriculture industry requires rapid technological advancement to sustain high crop yields.
In a paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, a novel composite of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and nano-zero valent iron (nZVI) was developed via a green and facile approach, utilizing the extract of Atriplex halimus leaves as a stabilizing and reducing agent.

In an article published in PNAS, researchers introduced the magnetotactic bacteria (MTB) Mms6 proteins into a reverse micelle structure to create a nanoreactor that resembled a magnetosome.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a new way to guide the self-assembly of a wide range of novel nanoscale structures using simple polymers as starting materials. Under the electron microscope, these nanometer-scale structures look like tiny Lego building blocks, including parapets for miniature medieval castles and Roman aqueducts.
An international research team from Italy, Germany, the UK, and China recently examined important development directions in the area of electronic materials with curved geometries at the nanoscale in a study that was recently published in Nature Electronics.
PNRs are ribbon-like strands of the 2D material phosphorous which, like graphene, are composed of layers of atoms that are only single-atom thick.
