The objective of the Journal of Nanoparticle Research is to disseminate knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological phenomena and processes in structures that have at least one lengthscale ranging from molecular to approximately 100 nm (or submicron in some situations), and exhibit improved and novel properties that are a direct result of their small size.
Nanoparticle-based coating helps stop water from beading
When rain falls on a glass window or a plastic skylight cover, it often forms beads. That's because these surfaces typically are hydrophobic, meaning they repel water.
Silver nanoparticles on graphene oxide support
Silver (Ag) has a high catalytic activity towards many organic and inorganic transformations such as NOx reduction and catalytic oxidation of CO to CO2. In practical applications, catalysts like Ag are affixed ...
Small differences in how a technology is defined can make a big difference in how the public feels about it
(Phys.org) —Even small tweaks in how scientists describe scientific breakthroughs can significantly change how the public perceives their work, a new study indicates. Researchers found that showing individuals different ...
