The Innovation Society: CNT Can Accumulate Quickly in Sediment



A Duke University team has found that single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) accumulate quickly in the bottom sediments of an experimental wetland setting (mesocosm).

The results indicate little risk to humans ingesting the particles through drinking water, the scientists say. But they say that the…

Coating CNT with Aluminium Oxide Lowers Risk of Lung Injury

A new study from North Carolina State University and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) finds that coating multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with aluminum oxide reduces the risk of pulmonary fibrosis in mice. “This could be an important finding in the larger field of work…

The Innovation Society: Batteries included: A Solar Cell that Stores its Own Power

Is it a solar cell? Or a rechargeable battery? Actually, the patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is both: the world’s first solar battery, which runs on light and air. Key to the innovation is a mesh solar panel, which allows air to enter the battery, and a special process for transferring…

Biodistribution of carbon nanotubes in the body - The Innovation Society



CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) and CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) researchers have looked at what happens to nanotubes after one year inside an animal. Studies in mice revealed that a very small percentage (0.75%) of the initial quantity of nanotubes inhaled crossed the pulmonary epithelial barrier and translocated to the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. Although these results cannot be extrapolated to humans, this work…

The Innovation Society: Carcinogenicity of nanomaterials

The German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has published a review of available studies on the carcinogenicity and mutagenicity of nanomaterials. The review includes the assessment of more than 100 single studies using a relational database. Within the selected materials, nano-silv
er was found to be the most toxic. …

Bactericidal activity of nanodiamonds



Material scientists from Bremen (Germany) and Stanford have identified nanodiamonds as potent bactericidal agents. The bactericidal effect of the nanodiamonds is likely caused by acid anhydride groups on their surface. The discovery opens a multitude of…

Graphene oxide highly mobile in water

A new study confirms that graphene oxide can be highly mobile in water bodies. Researchers investigated the mobility of graphene oxide in various types of waters. The study also confirms the results of a previous study, which had shown that graphene oxide nanoparticles can remain suspended for weeks. Given the toxicity of graphene (oxide), this could lead to adverse effects if released to the environment.…

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
