Beyond good vibrations: New insights into metamaterial magic

Nanowerk.com - 6 ноября, 2017 - 22:46
Metamaterials have amazing potential--think invisibility cloaks and perfect lenses - but they are more likely to be found in a Harry Potter novel than a lab. To help bring them closer to reality, researchers have gone back to basics and demonstrated that the fundamental physics of metamaterials is more complex than scientists once thought.

Researchers have shown for the first time in mice that long and thin nanomaterials called carbon nanotubes may have the same carcinogenic effect as asbestos: they can induce the formation of mesothelioma. The findings were observed in 10 percent -- 25 percent of the 32 animals included in the study, which has not yet been replicated in humans.

Autonomously growing synthetic DNA strands

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 6 ноября, 2017 - 20:13
Engineers have developed a method that allows pre-designed sequences of DNA to autonomously grow and concatenate along specific assembly routes, hence providing the basis for a new generation of programmable molecular devices. Putting their new concept of so-called 'Primer Exchange Reaction' (PER) cascades to the test, they successfully engineered a first set of devices with diverse functions, such as self-building DNA-origami and DNA nanostructures that sense, amplify, record or logically evaluate environmental signals.

Dendritic fibrous nanosilica: All-in-one nanomaterial for energy, environment and health

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 3 ноября, 2017 - 17:57
Dendritic fibrous nanosilica (DFNS), also known as KCC-1, has a unique fibrous morphology and a high surface area with improved accessibility to the internal surface, tunable pore size and volume, controllable particle size, which made it useful in the fields of energy, environment, and health. DFNS showed interesting applications in solar energy harvesting (water splitting for hydrogen), energy storage (battery), CO2 capture, drug delivery, sensing etc. It is truly an all-in-one nanomaterial.
