Graphene research program to get €1 billion over ten years from the EU

Back in May 2011, a graphene research program (called GRAPHENE-CA) was shortlisted for one of two €1 billion EU research initiatives. Today we're happy to report that this project was indeed chosen by the European Commission. This is set to be a huge boost to graphene research and will hopefully accelerate commercialization of graphene based products. The EU will officially announce their decision next week (January 28):…

Előttünk a grafénalapú világ (in Hungarian)

Úgy tűnik, hogy valamennyi, a jövőjét komolyan vevő állam és cég arra koncentrál, hogy minél több, grafénnal kapcsolatos felfedezés kötődjön hozzá. A felfokozott aktivitás következménye: a grafénes szabadalmak számának hihetetlen mértékű felfutása. E különleges anyag tulajdonságait jól ismerők azt mondják, hogy a grafén az ipari forradalomhoz hasonló változást indíthat el a gazdaságban.…

Graphene Oxide used to soak radioactive waste

Researchers from Rice University and Lomonosov Moscow State University discovered that Graphene Oxide can quickly remove radioactive material from contaminated water. They found out that graphene oxide bind quickly to natural and human-made radionuclides and condense them into solids.

This discovery is obviously useful in contaminated site cleanups (such as the Fukushima nuclear plants), but is also useful in hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) for oil and gas recovery and rare…

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
