Non-Sulfonated Cyannine Fluorescent dyes - do you need water soluble nano labels? Lumiprobe

Non-sulfonated cyanines - fluorescent dyes

There are two varieties of cyanine dyes: non-sulfonated cyanines, and sulfonated cyanines. For many applications they are interchangeable, because their spectral properties are nearly identical. Both sulfonated and non-sulfonated dyes can be used for the labeling of biomolecules such as DNA and proteins. The difference between the dyes is their solubility: sulfo- dyes are water-soluble, and they do not use of…

Click Chemistry - useful for your research?

Click Chemistry:  protocol for the labeling and modification of biomolecules


Click Chemistry is a reaction between azide and alkyne yielding covalent product - 1,5-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazole. This process is also known as CuAAC - Cu catalyzed alkyne azide cycloaddition.

Re the vital importance of nanopolymer research compared to entropic nano research

My article addressing the vital importance of nanopolymer research compared with entropic nano research has been published as promised. It may be of some possible interest.

I have also included reference to my Platonic-Fullerene Chemistry being associated with the Children's Encyclopedia of the Smithsonian Inststitute. I feel that this might lead to some future ideas re funding

for nanopolymer research.…

California DTSC Redefines Nanoscale in Draft Green Chemistry Regulation

On June 23, 2010, the California agency, the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), released a draft of the Green Chemistry Regulation for Safer Consumer Products. Incredibly, in the draft, DTSC proposes to redefine the nanoscale as: “Nanoscale” means one or more dimensions of the order of 1000 nanometers or less. " Yes, that's 1,000 nm you're…

Science Fair Blues

On Friday March 13, I judged 14 chemistry projects at the Houston district science fair. This is a big deal. This was the 50th anniversary of Science and Engineering Fair of Houston. It is a big deal for a student to make it to the judging at the Houston convention center. Advancement to this division means that their project that was one of 30,000 projects entered in the preliminary school/district fair competitions that was chosen to be in this elite group of 1,300 projects from 140 schools.… Continue

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
