Nanocellulose in medicine and green manufacturing

What if you could take one of the most abundant natural materials on earth and harness its strength to lighten the heaviest of objects, to replace synthetic materials, or use it in scaffolding to grow bone, in a fast-growing ...

Talc nanocrystals with unique properties produced within seconds

It takes millions of years until the natural clay mineral talc is produced hydrothermally under bedrock, but artificial synthesis can make this process a lot shorter. Synthetic talc has many advantages such as high purity ...

Nanocage surfaces get 'makeover' in room temperature

Kyoto University researchers have discovered a way of replacing surface ions of copper oxide nanocrystals at ambient conditions—a feat that will make nanocage production considerably simpler.

Molecular-like photochemistry from semiconductor nanocrystals

Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated the transfer of triplet exciton energy from semiconductor nanocrystals to surface-bound molecular acceptors, extending the lifetime of the originally prepared ...
