Fuelling hopes for unplugged power supplies (by ProNano)

If you have been left high and dry by your Ipad battery and unable to recharge it, you see the problem. High tech gadgets, electronic appliances and electric cars have a well-know downside: sooner or later, you need to look for a plug - and a power grid- to keep them alive. Fuel cells - where electricity is produced directly by the oxidation of compounds such as alcohols - hold the promise to provide portable, clean and silent sources of energy and have therefore been investigated for…

Hybrid Inorganic/organic nano-materials for photovoltaic applications

Ph.D. (Doktorarbeit) projects are being offered in the field of hybrid inorganic nanoparticle-conductive polymer materials at the University of South Florida (USF). This collaborative project between USF and the University of Washington is funded through the NSF-SOLAR program. The focus of the projects centers around the investigation of charge transfer mechanisms within hybrid materials, as well as with surrounding matrices. Potential applications of these materials are in organic solar…

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
