Will we see anti-bacterial graphene band-aids soon?

So, here's yet-another area where graphene may be useful: it turns out that graphene kills bacteria simply by slicing though them. This may enable simply graphene-based anti-bacteria "band-aids" soon:

Method of Measuring Nanoparticle Penetration through Protective Glove Materials under Conditions Simulating Workplace Use

The IRSST just published a method of measuring nanoparticles penetration through protective gloves. With the exponential growth in industrial applications of nanotechnologies and the corresponding increased risk of occupational exposure to nanomaterials, adoption of the precautionary principle is advisable. To apply this principle, personal protective equipment against nanoparticles must be made available, even though it should be regarded only as a last line of defence in an overall risk…

Phd Studentship - chemical synthesis of functional nanoparticles

Supervisor: Dr Chaoying Wan Renewable carbon-based fuels are produced from biomass. An alternative way is chemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is being produced by industry in an increasing rate and is causing global warming problems. This project aims to develop functional nanomaterials that can capture atmospheric CO2 and convert it into fuel. This approach will simultaneously address problems related to reduction of CO2 emissions and its storage. This…

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
