All carbon nanotubes are not created equally

The family of carbon nanotubes is large. There can be single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), which are like a rolled up sheet of graphene - a monolayer of carbon bonded into a tubelike structure or they could be multiwalled carbon nanotubes, which have concentric layers of these graphene tubes. These carbon nanotubes can have large aspect ratios (length to width) or could be cut into ultra short carbon nanotubes. In fact, carbon nanotubes come in thousands of different molecular weights and…See More

I am writing this blog as I procrastinate writing the final exam for myBioNano class this fall. During the class, student picked current peerreviewed journal articles and presented them in a short Pecha Kuchaformat. This means presenting 20 PPT with 20 sec per slide. Topicsranged from applications of gold nanoparticles for lung cancerdetection, the effects of feeding Buckyballs to mice, and antimicrobialproperties of nanosilver. Students in the class were required to readthe papers chosen by…See More

"Dear Dr. Nichol, Do you think this discovery brings in a new problem, since we have been doing our calculations based on our old measurements, and we haven't faced problems yet. Raghavendran"

Proton Size

I woke up this morning feeling maybe smaller, maybe less energized. Infact, a new study in Nature calculates that the proton is 4% smallerthan previously thought or as this Scientific American headline reads"proton shrinks in size"http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=proton-shrinks-in-size.So perhaps my jeans really do fit better today because my protons aresmaller than they were last week.

Nanocomposites and everyday things

Posted on June 11, 2010 at 5:49am 0 Comments

just put some Saran wrap on leftovers. Was it Saran or some cheaper

knock off? Does it matter? Probably not, since my family will eat it

tomorrow regardless (they are not picky). However, if you were packing a

product to be shipped around the world, like an expensive

pharmaceutical product or even an inexpensive snack, you would care.

Time is money - esp. when it is sitting on a store shelf.



How does this relate to the esoteric term, nanocomposites? The cause… Continue

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
