Yang et al.'s recent paper gives us a new way method of custom design of nanoparticles. See my page for details

A nanoscience example of "bricks and mortar"

Posted on February 26, 2012 at 11:27pm 0 Comments

Sea urchin spines have been shown to have a nanostructure involving “bricks” of calcite crystals embedded in an amorphous calcium carbonate “mortar”.See my page for more details.

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
