DNA-guided Silver and Graphene-Oxide prove to be a great anti-bacterial agent in plants

Researchers from the University of Florida and Hunan Univeristy developed DNA-directed silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) grown on graphene oxide (GO). These so called Ag@dsDNA@GO composites act as antibacterial agents, decreasing X. perforans (a model plant pathogenic bacterium) cell viability in culture and on plants.

In a greenhouse experiment they applied this material on tomato transplants and they reported significant reduction of disease caused by bacterial spot compared to the…

MIT's new graphene based solar cells to achieve world's highest energy conversion efficiency

Researchers from MIT are developing graphene and molybdenum-disulfide based solar cells that may become the world's most efficient solar cells. A single layer system (made from 1 graphene sheet and one MD sheet) achieves 1%-2% conversion while being only 1 nm thick. A silicon solar cells achieves 15%-20% efficiency but is hundreds of thousands times thicker. You can use several layers on top of each other to boost efficiency:…

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
