Graphene Oxide used to soak radioactive waste

Researchers from Rice University and Lomonosov Moscow State University discovered that Graphene Oxide can quickly remove radioactive material from contaminated water. They found out that graphene oxide bind quickly to natural and human-made radionuclides and condense them into solids.

This discovery is obviously useful in contaminated site cleanups (such as the Fukushima nuclear plants), but is also useful in hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) for oil and gas recovery and rare…

PhD Position: In situ spectroscopy of heterogeneous nanoparticle catalysts (Durham University, UK Students Only)

Heterogeneous (solid) catalysts are used in 90% of all petrochemical-based industrial processes; heterogeneous catalyst manufacture is worth $250bn annually. Currently, 99% of carbon-based feedstocks used by the chemicals industry (and indirectly by many others) are derived from petroleum and natural gas. The pressure to switch existing chemical processes to more sustainable feedstocks requires the development of new catalysts with significantly different…

New nano textbook

Dear colleagues.

Springer has recently published my book 'Statistical physics of Nanoparticles in the Gas Phase'. It contains 11 chapters and three appendices, covering a number of phenomena and systems, such as rate constants for atom, electron and photon emission, abundance spectra and binding energies, powerlaw decay, simulation methods, thermally excited valence electrons, melting of finite particles, etc. It is of particular interest for experimentalists who work with gas phase…

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
