New paper: "Nanostructural colouration in Malaysian plants: Lessons for biomimetics and biomaterials"

There is a story behind nearly everything we think and do. Here some words related to our newest paper (just published!):

I have always loved iridescence and structural colours. Could watch rainbows, soap bubbles, oil films on water, opals, and CDs/DVDs/holograms for hours - and do. These brilliant colours make me happy. And how astonished I was when I heard that some fruits, some plant leaves, some viruses, and many many…

Move over Gortex, Graphene is a thousand times better at waterproofing clothes

Researchers from ETH Zurich developed a stable porous membrane made from only 2 layers of graphene. They say that this is the thinnest possible porous membrane that is technologically possible to make.

The new membrane can be used as a filter for several different purposes - such as waterproof clothing. In fact the researchers say that their membrane will be a thousand fold more breathable than Goretex! Other applications may include water filteration and gas and liquid flow rate…

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
