Russian researchers suggest precipitating nickel on carbonic nanotubes

Nickel nanoparticles are used as a catalyst to produce various substances — for example, synthetic hydrocarbons. Broad use of this inexpensive catalytic metal is limited by the fact that researchers have no effective method of generating nanoparticles of similar structure and of closely varied sizes.

Experts at the Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials Research Centre at Tambov Derzhavin State University have…

High-performance bendable batteries possible using Graphene

Researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) say that Graphene can be used to create bendable rechargeable batteries.

This battery actually has promising performance compared to non-flexible batteries - higher energy density, power density and better cycle life. The team now works on extending the performance using solid-state or polymer electrolyte. They also believe that this technology can be used not just in batteries but also in solar cells,… Continue

Nanomaterial purity is vital for bacterial health

Researchers at the University of Orenburg have tested the effect of various carbon nanoparticles on bacteria. It was discovered that the bacteria-growth-inhibiting properties of nanotubes declined as the quality of purification lowered; the bacteria were neutral towards fullerenes unless the latter were modified by amine groups.…

Light instead of temperature: nanocrystals have become more accessible

Russian researchers have suggested a new method to form crystalline nanostructure of the Fe-Cu-Nb-Si-B alloys. The nanostructures obtained under the action of gas discharge optical radiation possess better magnetic and mechanical characteristics as compared to their analogues produced via temperature methods.…

The lubricating environmant in technical Tribals-systems is a dynamic multi-phase system that consists of liquid, solid and gaseous components. Solid particles have different origins and unknown influence on the behavior of Tribals systems. Some of them are product of wear, while others are product of oil oxidation or are soaked from the outside while in contact with the Tribals systems. Solids are placed in lubricating environment for a specific purpose - to act as…

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
