"Spicy world of NanoScience"
According to the valid definitions in ISO/TS 27687: August 2008 and the standardl particle definitions in accordance with ISO TC 24/SC 4, TC 146 and TC 209 there is a clear definition of nano particles respectively nano objects. Only for these nano objects, where one, two or three external dimensions are in the nanometer range below 100nm, the term nano particles should be used.
All coarser particles are submicron particles and should not be called nano particles…
In relation with production and stabilization of Nano-objects there is very often the talk about observing/ setting the right Zeta-potential. Also a lot of actual analytical instruments promote Zeta-potential determination together with e.g. size determination.
But let us have a closer look to the use of Zeta-potential today and its value.
In research of specific structure analysis Zeta-potential measurement is irreplaceable for:

Rohm developed a new (2nd-generation) OLED lighting panel that uses a red phosphorescent material. The new material results in a more efficient device (about 25-30lm/W, up from about 11lm/W). Lumiotec will start producing and selling those panels in a few days - they will be cheaper (¥30,000 per panel, or about $365) than the older panels, and Lumiotec plans to make around 60,000 a year.

In my recent blog on this theme I stated:
These early instruments needed a very robust and simple calculation mode, the ‘2nd Cumulant’ method, for evaluation because the calculation power of the then available computers were still very limited. Still today this simplified calculation method is positioned in the related ISO 13321 framework. It generates as results a mean particle diameter and a value for the width of an assumed Gaussian distribution…Continue

Next Issue of Nano Digest will have main theme as Nanobiotechnology.
People interested send interesting articles, features, news, lab reports, commericlisation aspects, industry news, etc can send to firstname.lastname@example.org
We also encourage people to advertise in this magazine since it will also help the publishers to run the magazine for some more time
looking forward for your contributions

In our group tools from Supramolecular Chemistry are used to engineer cell fate. Cell adhesion, migration and differentiation are important for various applications such as tissue engineering. This project is a collabortion with the medical centre in Enschede and cell biologists to improve the design of stent materials.
The project deals with functionalizing and synthesizing proteins and peptides with supramolecular ligands, which are used for anchoring them onto (stent) surfaces that…
