Of late i am coming across synthesis of nano particles using plant extracts like sea weed, fungi etc., I am an ardent advocate of technologies which are sustainable and environmental friendly. It is well known that there are apprehensions about synthesis of nano particles using chemical methods which may be very harmful to the human health as the nano-size particles assume asbestos-like properties detrimental to the lungs and internal organs of the humans. It is a welcome relief to the humans if green nano technology using plant sources for synthesis of nano particles is adopted on a big scale.
I have written an article on green nano describing some methods for the synthesis of nano particles and their use in environmental remediation in the April issue of nano digest. Nano digest is being brought out by K.Jayadev one of the members of this nanopaprika.eu site. You can find a mention on the article in the site www.nanodigestmag.com in the current issue section.
The suscribers of the magazine may go through the full article in the magazine.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
