How Definitions of Nanotechnology Shape Public Reactions

A recently published article in the "Journal of Nanoparticle Research" examines the effect of different nanotechnology definitions on public reactions. Researchers found that showing individuals different contextes of nanotechnology led to differences in how strongly they supported this emerging area of science and in their motivation to learn more about it.

Study Suggests Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials at the Workplace

The Bavarian Environmental and Food Safety Authority has recently published the report „Nanomaterials at the workplace – Exposition, health risks and prevention measures“. Despite rapide growth in nanotechnology application there is still little known about potential hazards for human health and the environment. The study identifies employees to be especially exposed to nanotechnology risks…

Carbon Nanotubes Might Cause Tumors in Mice

NIOSH Researchers report preliminary findings in which mice were exposed by inhalation to multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT). The study was designed to investigate whether these tiny particles have potential to initiate or promote cancer. These results indicate that MWCNT can increase the risk of cancer in mice exposed to a known carcinogen. The study does not suggest that MWCNTs alone…

Graphene and Molybdenite based flash memory is efficient, flexible, small and fast

Researchers from EPFL designed a new flash memory cell prototype that is made from graphene and Molybdenite (MoS2). They say that the new design is efficient, flexible, small and fast. The idea is that the unique electronic properties of MoS2 (it has an "idea energy band") are combined with graphene's excellent conductivity:…

New graphene-based earphone-sized speaker

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new graphene-based earphone-sized speaker - that can actually outperform the best earphones. They say that even with almost no specialized acoustic design, it performs comparably to a high quality commercial headsets (a Sennheiser MX-400 earphone, in fact). The graphene speaker is also highly efficient:…

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
